A delicate rosé champagne made, like the Brut Tradition, with equal proportions of the three traditional grape varieties - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. However, it is a blend of 80% white wine and 20% red.
Larnaudie-Hirault own 6 hectares of vines and are situated in the tiny village of Trois-Puits in the Montagne-de-Reims, some 6 miles south of Reims itself. The Montagne-de-Reims is largely planted to the black varieties of Champagne - Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Vigorous mousse rises briskly. Very cherryade colour (the wine is a blend of red and white wine). The nose is characterised by red fruits and nutty aromas: walnuts and salt and strawberry fruit. The fluff of the mousse hardens to a saline edge. A dry wine of good length, very mineral length at that. A beautifully balanced and energetic wine, showing a quantity of spice on both nose and palate.
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
