Domaine Louis Brochet Brut Rosé
Brut Rosé is a rosé Champagne made from 85% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier and 5% Chardonnay. The wine is produced according to the traditional rules for the production of Rosé Champagne; red wine is simply added to the champagne in different amounts depending on the vintage.

Presentation of the vineyard
Maison Louis Brochet is located in Ecueil, south of Reims, but the vineyard also includes areas of Montagne de Reims which is classified as Champagne " Premier cru " . To avoid any misunderstanding, it should be mentioned that Maison Louis Brochet recently renamed from earlier Champagne Brochet - Hervieux . Only the name has changed , the winery is still a self- standing family-owned winery which is situated on some of the most qualitative Champagne areas. It was in 1944 that Hervé Brochet and Yvonne Hervieux formally created the vineyard , but today it's the grandson Louis who is in charge of the vineyard's 17 hectares of land together with his sister Hélène. The Champagne production is done completely independently, solely with grapes from the vineyard and the wine is made according to the family tradition by the family's two own oenologists . Chardonnay grapes are blended with Pinot Noir in its own way, creating great wines with a lot of personality . A vineyard to explore for the discerning and interested champagne enthusiast!
Lively and generous bubbles with a fine string of white mousse. The aromas explode in the nose; fresh and fruity aromas of cherries and raspberries. A light and lively flavor with hints of red berries. To drink as an aperitif or to accompany fresh strawberries with vanilla ice cream!
