Description

A lively and fruity Brut Rosé

The estate

Alfred Gratien founded this eponymous house in 1864. Located in Épernay, at the heart of the Champagne wine region, the Alfred Gratien House has advocated for a rigorous selection of grapes and vinification in barrels as well as volume control to preserve the terroir’s original character and to exude all of the freshness of the wines.

Alfred Gratien Champagne is produced from a know-how which has been transmitted from father to son for multiple generations and which contributes to the unique style of the house’s cuvées.

The vineyard

The Alfred Gratien Champagne House overlooks 1.56 hectares of vines situated on two exceptional Premiers and Grands Cru terroirs in the Champagne region: the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The house completes its supplies by acquiring grapes from over sixty long-standing and loyal winegrowers who have worked with the house for generations.

Vinification and ageing

Exclusive use of the first press. Since 1864, vinification has been entirely carried out in oak barrels of at least 4 previous wines. This method encourages the wines’ micro-oxygenation, conferring complexity and roundness. Plot-based vinification without malolactic fermentation to preserve the whole fruit and the characteristic liveliness of these wines with significant ageing potential.

The blend

Chardonnay

Pinot Noir.

Alfred Gratien's Brut Rosé: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The wine is a beautiful, light and nuanced orange colour with slight dark purple highlights. The effervescence is delicate.

Nose

The first nose combines fruity fragrances with flavourful mineral notes. Over aeration, aromas of pink grapefruit, currant, blueberry and biscuit combine with aromas of cherry, mushroom and iodised notes.

Palate

The palate seduces with its liveliness and mouth-coating structure. The tannic structure is unveiled over tasting, harmoniously combining with aromas of red fruit and biscuit. Lively and saline, the finish is elevated by a delicious acidity, indicative of this cuvée’s excellence.

Food and wine pairing

This Brut Rosé cuvée by Alfred Gratien goes perfectly with marinated red mullet fillets.

Serving

For an optimal tasting, serve at 10°C in a slender flute.
