Base wines are carefully selected among the best French terroirs, to attain the unique style Grand MÉRITE rosé is known for. The blend varies according to each vintage characteristics, with generally a high proportion of Pinot Noir.
These base wines were fined, filtered and brought to low temperature. They were put into bottles along with liqueur de tirage (wine mixed with cane sugar syrup) and specially prepared quality yeasts. During the following month, took place the prise de mousse: a second fermentation during which the yeasts transformed the sugar into alcohol and carbonic gas, thus creating bubbles. Once their work was done, the yeasts died and fell along the side of the bottle. In the coolness of our premises, each Grand MÉRITE rosé has spent an average of 12 months on these laths, acquiring every day more complexity. To remove this deposit, the bottles were first put upside down by remuage, then opened by dégorgement, which instantly expulsed the yeasts. Our home-made liqueur d’expédition, brought the final touch to this premium Cuvée.
