This rare wine comes from Bisseuil and Avize for the chardonnay, with 11% pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims. It is a blended rosé, with the idea of producing a great wine in the spirit of a blanc de blancs, a style favoured by Etienne Calsac. We love this bright and sensual style (thanks to a slightly higher dosage), with a very dynamic finish, with aromas of wild strawberries. Alas, there are few of them: only 1'300 bottles are produced each year. Bettane & Desseauve: 15.5/20; Guide Vert RVF: 90/100

Viticulture

Average age of the vineyard: 29 years. Production: 1300 bottles. Terroir: Chardonnay mainly from the terroirs of Bisseuil and Avize (80%/20%) and Pinot Noir from the Reims mountain. Planting density: 7,575 vines/ha. The soil is worked to express the full complexity of the terroir (tractor and horse). Chalky soil, outcropping chalk, south and south-east exposure.

Oenology

Direct pressing of the whole harvest with splitting of the juice and deviation from self-pressing. Wine kept on fine lees for 7 months before bottling. 15% of the wine was vinified and aged in barrels of several wines. Wine not filtered and not chilled. Dosage 6-7 g /L.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Puff pastry of turbot with sorrel - Crayfish salad - Half-dried goat cheese.

Artisan-winemaker, this is how Etienne Calsac presents himself, a young harvester-manipulator established in Avize on the Côte des Blancs, who has taken over the vines from his grandparents. 2.8 ha in total spread over Avize, Grauves and Bisseuil in the great valley of the Marne. The average age of the vineyard is thirty years and the estate is certified "high environmental value". Etienne Calsac attaches great importance to working the soil and produces confidential champagnes of great purity, incisive and fine. 70% of the estate's production is exported.
