Rosé des Riceys AOC, Joel Defrance, 2019

(1 customer review)

Rose des Riceys is a rare wine made exclusively from vines from the commune of Les Riceys in France. It is only produced in very good years of vintage.

Rose des Riceys, an appellation created in 1947, is a French rosé wine from the Champagne terroir. It is bounded by the commune of Les Riceys, the southernmost of the Champagne vineyards, on the border with Burgundy and it is the only vineyard to have the three Champagne appellations (champagne, coteaux-champenois and rosé des Riceys).

Unlike Champagne, the Rosé des Riceys is not sparkling. Rose des Riceys is a still wine, made with Pinot Noir grapes delicately ripened on well-exposed steep hillsides. It is a gourmet wine that will accompany your main dishes or aperitif with ease.

Food Pairing:

Red meat, Fish, Tomme de brebis

Pinot Noir
Appelation Origine Controlee (AOC) label

    This is my first Rosé des Riceys, and I like it rather much.

    Pull and pour at about 10-12 degrees as recommended on the label. Initially the acidity is rather aggressive, but this moderates with a few minutes air. The nose is then very like a rosé champagne – tart red fruit and a hint of minerality. These follow to the palate which is very crisp but where a hint of sweetness appears on the mid-palate. The finish is rather long, crisp, but with light drying tannins coating the mouth.

    The overall impression for me is something somewhere between a flat rosé de saignée champagne, and a very light Burgundy. It’s working rather well both as an aperitif and with some lightly-spiced Asian food.

    I note though that according to the Guide Hachette, which accords the wine one star, in France this would sell for ~11-15 euros.
