Dufour Rose Le Corroy Oeil de Perdrix Le Corroy
A new release from one of our favourite Champagne Growers, Charles Dufour. He is based in the Aube, the current hot bed for creativity in Champagne. This is a single vineyard Rose, made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Charles's wines are always a bit different and quirky, with low sulphur, he works his vineyards organically and ages the wines in old oak barrels. He disgorges and sells them when he feels they are ready, hence we just got a new allocation in.
Most Rose Champagnes taste of strawberries and red currant, which this does too, but it also has a slighlty savoury, mineral quality to it. This actually makes it more food friendly and more wine like. If you fancy a bottle better be quick, this is all the stock that will be available in the UK.
