One of our rarest wines, as the annual allocation is limited to 48 bottles. Made with the Saignée method and completely aged in French Barriques, this wine resembles no other.
The Wine’s Story
This unique rosé, is created by blending Pinot Noir from the Domaine’s oldest Pinot Noir parcel, Les Vignes, planted in 1950, with high-quality Chardonnay juice. The Pinot Noir uses the Saignée method to get its light and beautifully light, pinkish color.
Vinification is done entirely in oak barrels, which add roundness to the wine’s acidic spine, derived from blocking the malolactic fermentation (MF). Domaine Collet only produce 600 bottles annually of this rare gem, meaning that Brix Wine’s allocation is limited to 48 bottles per year. That said, we encourage everybody to taste it, as it’s worthy of your full attention.
