Doyard Oeil De Perdrix Grand Cru Extra-Brut Millésime 75cl

Doyard Oeil De Perdrix Grand Cru Extra-Brut Millésime

A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru vineyards of Aÿ and Avize respectively; the Pinot Noir is vinified in oak barrels and the Chardonnay in stainless steel vats with no malolactic fermentation taking place. A tiny dosage, 2 g/l of sugar is added prior to cellaring for about three years – only 3,500 bottles are made each year. The light pink colour is obtained by gently pressing a portion of the Pinot Noir grapes to bleed the skins of pigment – oeil de perdrix (eye of partridge) is a traditional term to describe this hue. Very dry, this is a vinous rosé with complex palate and long, pure finish.
