Champagne Fleury Carte Rouge Brut N/V

The name comes from the vinifying process: the rose (pink) color is obtained by 24 hours maceration of the dark skinned but with clear flesh destalked red grapes, before pressing. It looks like as if you were "saigner" (bleeding) the grapes.

Tasting Notes

Bright in color. Fresh pinot noir nose of strawberry fruit with high acidity, nice savoriness.  On the palate it has a continual flow of small bubbles with magnificent depth and terroir. Silver medal at Mondial du Rosé, Decanter World Wine Awards 2009.

Food Pairing

This Champagne will be served at a summer party as aperitif or along well-flavoured, spicy or exotic dishes. It's as well perfect for an intimate evening tête  tête.
