Coutier Brut Rosé
85% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir (still red wine)
100% estate-fruit from Ambonnay, one of the largest Grand Cru villages.
Vineyards in Ambonnay face due south and produce a warmer microclimate for the grapes.
Ambonnay soils have more clay, coupled with the strong influence of chalky limestone.
The Coutiers began organic conversion in 2019. For many years they have avoided herbicides.
2015 base vintage, with some reserve from previous vintages. Stainless steel; 100% malolactic.
7.5 gr/l dosage Disgorgement: May 2017
Coutier's assemblage rose is made with 15% still red Pinot Noir, blended with 85% Chardonnay. It is a beautifully crafted and offers up gorgeous signature notes of red fruit, brioche and the complex soil tones of Ambonnay fruit.
