The prowess of a mature rosé!

This wine has the warmth and voluptuousness of pink gold, a mixture of gold, copper and silver, accompanied by a muscular body.

Inspired by the shimmering Perle d'Aurore, Louis Bouillot's most popular non-vintage rosé, Perle d'Or Rose offers an extra degree of complexity. Made only in the best years, it was designed along the same exceptional lines as Perle d'Or, in a rosé version, bringing into play the ingredients of an almost miraculous recipe: ageing, barrels, origins.

This singular Crrémant de Bourgogne rosé is the result of the astonishing metamorphosis of a fruity rosé into an aged rosé: the paradox of a mature wine that has managed to remain fresh!

This golden rosé, aged without developing a patina, combines fruitiness and length. A short maceration enhances its deep colour. The Pinot Noir plays the tenor here, supported by the chorus, Chardonnay and Gamay. Oak barrels have given a touch of gold to a divine portion for six months and an ageing period of more than three years on racks has revealed its character while preserving the beautiful liveliness of the bubbles.

This unusual combination earned it the status of Eminent, a rare and subtly voluptuous wine.

A rosé with great presence
Generous bubbles, persistent bead.
Notes of strawberry, cherry, brioche.
Yellow peach and almond on the palate.

Matching combinations: shellfish, smoked lake and river fish. And blue-veined cheeses with a strong character such as Roquefort, Bleu de Bresse, Gorgonzola, or Stilton.

A fine gastronomic wine

2018 was truly an exceptional year! The combination of a stormy spring and a particularly dry summer resulted in an abundant, high-quality and very healthy harvest we won’t forget any time soon! Excellent substance, high potential doubled by over three years of ageing, part of which was conducted in wooden casks.

The naturally and exquisitely salmon colour sets the tone for this wine, consisting of a blend of superb Burgundy Pinot Noir (75%), a splash of Gamay, rounded off with a hint of Chardonnay. The persistent foam delivers floral scents, such as rose combined with hints of vanilla. The fruitiness – redcurrant, morello cherry, kirsch – and a hint of brioche provide an extra dimension.

The promise of deliciousness shines through beautifully in the mouth. The delicate effervescence is not excessive and contributes to the freshness. It emphasises the balance between the initial liveliness and the long, vinous softness of the finish, underlined by an imperceptible dosage of just 4 g/l.
