Composition parcellaire
Rosé de Mailly
Tasting Food and drink harmonies In details
Luscious meringue-like hints of sweetness highlighted by subtle floral notes with just the faintest whiff of spring – add a refined, red-fruit driven bouquet and you have all the hallmarks of a masterfully macerated rosé. On the palate the wine is wonderfully plush, with kirsch-like notes of raspberries intermixed with juicy citrus adding verve and layers of depth.
Our ultimate aperitif champagne, Rosé de Mailly will add a touch of Mailly charm to cocktail parties of every kind. On the terrace in summer or by a roaring hearth in winter, Rosé de Mailly is absolutely de rigueur! Particularly recommended with tapas, jamon ibérico, small feathered-game, roasted white meats or venison fillet with cranberries (uncommonly good with blue cheese too). On a sweeter note, try Rosé de Mailly with a berry-based dessert, or a charlotte made with “Biscuits Roses de Reims” – a match made in heaven.
