Tasting note from from 25.06.2020, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser


The 2013 Rosé de Maturation is a cuvée of 100% Pinot Noir grapes from old vineyards in Vertus. This Rosé de Saignée is made by bleeding the grapes on their skins for several days, a technique that enjoys rarity value in Champagne. In order to explore the ageing potential of high quality rosé champagnes, Sophie and Pierre Larmandier, after macerating the grapes for two to three days, fermented part of them spontaneously in wooden barrels and the other in concrete. After eleven months, the two batches were combined before it disappeared into the cellar for a further six years to mature after the second fermentation. Disgorged in July 2018, it was dosed with a discreet three grams.


Delicate rosé with clear orange reflections and filigree perlage.


Generous, expansive and hedonistic, the 2013 Rosé de Maturation from Larmandier-Bernier radiates from the goblet and recalls expansive banquets of gastronomically carefree days. Its table literally bends under the weight of dried fruit - dried quince, dried figs, candied orange peel and dates as well as blood oranges, apples and cucumbers fill its fruit basket. Mild spices set oriental accents which are salinely complemented by delicate minerality. In addition, oven-warm pastry is served, biscuit instead of bread is the maxim and salt butter the means to the caramel that sweetens the rich nose.


The Rosé de Maceration plays in the haptic Champions League right from the start. Its mousseux glitters on the palate like star dust and accelerates the drinking flow from zero to one hundred in less than four seconds. Everything seems to be in the right place and in the right proportion. The fruit is reminiscent of stewed strawberries and dried and candied fruits like vineyard peaches and prunes. Underpinned by delicate phenolics that are haptically and aromatically reminiscent of raspberry seeds, it is underpinned by fluffy cloudy brioche notes with an extract fruity finish. A great rosé that demands equal cuisine.
