R.H. Coutier has been growing vines in Ambonnay since 1760, and was the first family to plant Chardonnay in the Pinot-dominant village. Much of his farmed production is still sold to Moët, Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot. Though they grown and ferment all of their own wine, they are not recognized as a RM (grower-producer) because their fruit is pressed at the local cooperative. Their Brut Rosé is made up of Grand Cru Ambonnay Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This rosé is always quite rich and forward, displaying a wide range of ripe cherry fruit, but maintains a sleek mineral backbone thanks to partial malolactic fermentation, and minimal dosage. It offers so much for such a wide range of Champagne fanatics, as it's high quality fruit and stainless steel use allows for a lean expression of rather robust terroir. A perfect way to be introduced to rosé Champagne at the very highest NV level.
