This pinot noir rosé is from 30 year old vines on calcareous clay loam and sand, fermented and rested for six months in tank and blended with 7 percent Coteaux Champensois 2011 before being bottled in April 2012 prior to three years en tirage. Dosage 5g/l. 

Grape growers since 1799 and producing their own wine since 1935, Lelarge Pugeot is biodynamic with minimal manipulation in the cellar and fermentation is carried out by indigenous yeast. 

Lelarge-Pugeot is an eighth-generation winery in the Premier Cru village of Vrigny on the rolling slopes of the Montagne de Reims (about 15 minutes west of Reims). It is a real family operation, helmed by the two parents, Dominique and Dominique, and supported by their kids, including Clémence.  

The family’s 8.7 hectares of vineyards, which are planted mostly with Pinot Meunier, face northward, offering some protection from the effects of global warming, though Clémence is quick to note that they can now make red wines for the first time in the history of Champagne.

The domaine, which has been Demeter-certified biodynamic since 2017, is comprised of 42 distinct parcels where Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay are grown at elevations of 400 ft on sandy/clay terroir.
