Champagne Collard – Picard
Cuvée des Merveilles Rosé de Saignée, 1er Cru, Brut
*Magnum (1,5ltr.) supplied in Giftbox
This Rosé Champagne comes from a vine plot classified as Premier Cru on the Vertus terroir. In order to enable the exceptional blossoming of the flavours, the vinification technique known as ‘de Signee’ is used, a method that has practically died out today in the Champagne region.
The alcoholic fermentation and maturing takes place in oak barrels without malolactic fermentation. After several years of aging in the bottle in our cellars, this cuvee is ready to be enjoyed, and will surprise you with its power and the originality of its fruitiness: a true marvel!

It is impossible to really taste an ice-cold wine. Champagne should therefore be served at a temperature between 6 ° and 10 ° C.
More to the lower limit of this range for the Non-Vintage Champagnes and more to the upper limit for the Vintage Champagnes.
You can achieve this temperature by placing the bottle, which comes from a cellar with a temperature of 10 ° to 15 ° C, in a cooling bucket filled with ice and water for 20 minutes. At a temperature of 6 to 9 ° C,
not only the odor and taste is at its best, but the pressure of the carbon dioxide has decreased to 1 atmosphere.
This makes it easier to open the bottle without spilling.
You can also put the bottle of champagne in the fridge but this no longer than 10 days. In any case, place the bottle in the least cold part of the refrigerator.
Is the bottle not completely empty? No problem ! Some people think you should drink a bottle of champagne completely empty!
You can simply close the bottle of champagne with a cork and then keep the bottle in the fridge for 24 hours without any problems.
With a special champagne cap it is even possible to keep the champagne sparkling for a few days.
