The old family run Boizel house who were established in 1834 have for decades been sparing us their best cuvées for our Sarcey Champagne. This Rose is based on Pinot Noir (at least 50%, the rest made up of a balance of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.) The strong Pinot Noir element gives this wine great finesse and sophistication, exhibiting bright, juicy raspberry flavours, really fruity and summery with an underlying earthy complexity.
The design and selection of our House range is quite literally, an ongoing project. Tastings are numerous and rigorous; our aim is to find wines that we believe are both representative of their origins and that have an extra quality over and above our competitors' equivalents. Wines that do not continue to produce the quality we expect we de-list. Our current house list represents a selection of old favourites, 61 Reserve Claret, Pomerol, Sarcey and 250th Cuvee Champagnes and Directors Tawny. Alongside these is our newest label, our House Red Burgundy which has been praised time and again by clients and press alike. It is a real filip to our range and now comes from one of the great names in the Côte-de-Nuits. With grapes from in-and-around the villages of Vosne and Nuits it is utterly pure and refined red burgundy at a price that simply cannot be beaten.
Champagne is the world's original and most famous region for the production of sparkling wine. A range of styles are produced from the Non-Vintage, through Rose, Vintage and more recently a host of prestige, Vintage luxury cuvees. The three permitted grape varieties are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
