About the Winery:
Located in the Cote de Bar village of Arrenthieres, the first winegrower to bear the name Chaput moved to Arrentières in 1862. By 1878, he had his own wine press. Their first champagne, “Cuvee des Rochottes”, was produced in the early 1930s. Today this family-run grower (the Chaput brothers Nicolas and Xavier, along with their father Denis and mother Jacquline) has 26 plots, each of which is different. The hillsides face South-East to West, with the steepness of the slopes ranging from 5 to 20%; the soil varies in its proportion of pebbles, its depth, and its richness in clay. 

Notes from the Winemaker:
Made with 100% Pinot Noir, this rosé consists of a blend of 25% red wine from the 2010 harvest, 40% of white wines from the 2010 harvest and 35% of reserve white wines from the 2008 harvest.  

Tasting Notes:
Bright raspberry pink color with mauve glints. The bubbles are fine and form a beaded cordon at the surface. The nose is refined, soft and delicate, revealing aromas of stone fruit, cherries, plums, strawberries, red currants and floral notes. The attack is juicy and rounded and fruity, supported by a fine, well-integrated acidity. There is a distinctive Morello cherry flavour. Full-bodied and generous, this is a powerful, refreshing champagne. Pleasant finish as the bubbles gradually fade.  

Food Pairing:
Braised veal sweetbreads, fine carrot and turmeric purée; Caramelized duck breast with blood oranges and poppy seeds.
