Tasting Notes

Crafted from the time-honored traditions of biodynamic farming, this Pinot Noir, sourced from the venerable 'Les Juliennes' vineyard in Bouzy, paints a tale of its terroir. A canvas of mineral undertones is illuminated by vibrant notes of tart red fruit and a whisper of herbs. The heart reveals true "Pinosity", adorned with captivating hints of rhubarb, all harmonized by a crisp, lingering acidity. An exquisite embodiment of Rosé Champagne.

Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Robert Parker

Lahaye's NV Rosé de Macération saw a day or two of maceration in tank before pressing, followed by vinification in amphora and barrel. Bursting with aromas of peonies, blood orange, red berries and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and flavorful, with lively acids and a saline finish.

Benoit Lahaye

Benoit Lahaye wears the hat of a farmer before that of a winemaker. His journey began in 1993 when he assumed control of his family's domaine, marking a pivotal shift in viticulture. He embarked on a transformation, first transitioning from pesticide usage to certified organic practices and then further to the demanding realm of biodynamic certification. This transition was anything but simple, especially in the context of Champagne's extreme northern climate, which can pose formidable challenges to biodynamic viticulture. In fact, the expanse of certified organic vineyards stands at a mere 1% of the total land in the region. Benoit Lahaye's steadfast commitment to organic and biodynamic practices in such a demanding environment underscores his unwavering dedication to sustainable and environmentally conscious winemaking, making him a true champion of the land.
