Champagne Piollot Père et Fils Les Protelles Rosé NV
The Les Protelles is an exciting new cuvée from Roland that is a Rosé de saignée (meaning that it is a rosé that has gained the pink colour through a short, 3 day maceration which was enough time to extract colour from the skins to produce the vibrant pink colour of this wine). It is made entirely from Pinot Noir.
The juice was transferred to a tank for the fermentation (both the alcoholic fermentation and the malolactic fermentation) prior to bottling.
It spent two years on lees before being disgorged in September 2020. After disgorgement 3 grams per litre of dosage was added to create an Extra Brut wine.
The Les Protelles vineyard has a beautiful southern exposure that ensures the grapes ripen well. The age of the vines is a minimum of 45 years.
Roland recommends drinking this Champagne with a chocolate dessert and we don’t think too many people would disagree with the concept!!
