Production information

Producer: Chateau des Sarrins

Not content with owning his own fantastic Champagne house, Bruno Paillard bought Chateau des Sarrins in 1995 and immediately set about revitalising the property. The name of the property is said to stem from an invading Saracen who was killed, and buried in his golden armour, on the property in the 14th Century.

Production note

The grapes are picked by hand. We systematically pick grapes off the bunch before pressing. The pressing cycle is very slow and light. We only keep the first two pressings, the purest, in order to reach a pale rose petal colour (the other pressings are systematically downgraded in second cuvees). The alcoholic fermentation happens slowly and steadily in open tanks (15 to 20 days). To be able to go through a steady fermentation, we maintain a constant temperature of between 20 and 23°C. We keep our rose wines in tanks until bottling in the spring following the harvest.
