Description

In 1834 the Boizel House was established in Épernay, the heart of Champagne, by a family passionate about the wines of its region. Even before the house was established, the Boizels have cultivated vineyards in some of the most well-known crus, such as Avize, Aÿ and Etoges. This intimate knowledge of the Champagne region, passed on through the generations, and access to grapes from the finest cru sites, are the essential elements behind the Boizels elegant portfolio. With the 5th and 6th generation Boizels at the helm, the tradition of excellence continues as all decisions at the winery are made to respect the natural qualities of the wine. From its cellars and visiting center on the Avenue de Champagne, the Boizels traditional know-how, dynamism and modernity are showcased in the unique style of its cuvees.

 

This very delicate Rosé is dominated by Pinot Noir, selected for finesse and personality, then Pinot Meunier, selected for splendid fruitiness and finally Chardonnay for its refined elegance. During blending, the addition of a small portion of Pinot Noir from Champagnes best terroirs for red wines - Cumières and Les Riceys gives the Rosé Brut its beautiful color and subtle aromas of red fruits.

VinificationGrapes are hand-picked and placed in small baskets. 8% of Pinot Noir vinified as red wine. Post second fermentation, the wine is aged for three years on its lees, in bottle. 20% of reserve wines are used in this cuvee.
