"Rosé Rhapsody: A Symphony in Pink" - Champagne Collet Brut Rosé

From Riots to Refined Elegance

The tale of Champagne Collet Brut Rosé is steeped in the rich history of Maison Collet, a beacon of tradition and excellence since 1921. Born from the ashes of the Champagne Riots, this house has emerged as a custodian of the Champagne region's authenticity and refinement. With roots deeply entrenched in Aÿ, Maison Collet crafts its champagnes with a meticulous selection of Premier and Grand Crus, mirroring the vibrant diversity of Champagne's terroirs. This dedication to quality and authenticity marks Champagne Collet as a wine of celebration and culinary delight, designed to complement the most exquisite gastronomic experiences.

A Craft of Precision and Passion

The Collet Brut Rosé is a masterful blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, and 10% Meunier, with an added touch of 16% Pinot Noir vinified as red wine to imbue it with its signature intense pink hue and rich, fruity aromas. Sourced from the esteemed Premier and Grand Crus villages such as Aÿ, Hautvillers, and Vertus, each grape variety contributes its own unique qualities to the blend: the Pinot Noir offers lightness and fruitiness, the Chardonnay brings freshness and lemony notes, while the Meunier adds roundness and suppleness. Aged for a minimum of four years in Maison Collet's ancient limestone cellars, this Brut Rosé achieves a perfect harmony of flavor, elegance, and complexity.

A Tapestry of Aromas and Flavors

Upon pouring, the Champagne reveals an intense peach-pink color, promising a feast for the senses. The nose is greeted with an initial bouquet of floral fragrances, soon unfolding into a medley of orange, mandarin, and yellow peach, with undertones of mulberries and raspberries. This aromatic complexity is enhanced by a delicate freshness and subtle notes of brown sugar. The palate is an exquisite blend of mulberry, blackcurrant, and peach, accented by a hint of cocoa. This rich fruitiness is perfectly balanced by a beautiful, silky texture and tender effervescence, making each sip a celebration of elegance and enjoyment.
