NV Champagne Dosnon Recolte Rose

Champagne, France

Layered and minerally Champagne Rose with a delicious spicy red fruit character. Sumptuously good.



Silky and expansive on a finish resounding with orange and mineral notes.

About The Wine

Dosnon is based in the slightly warmer southern part of Champagne, the Cotes des Bars, so the fruit is riper and richer in general.

Yet this delicious Pinot Noir dominant Rose bubbles holds so much tension and minerality! It's got orange peel and spicy Pinot Noir red fruit characters and a lingering finish.

A wine of surprise and distinction, and the price is great.

About Champagne Dosnon

Champagne Dosnon (previously known as Dosnon & Lepage) is the brainchild of Davy Dosnon, whose family has been in the southern part of the Champagne region called the Cote des Bars for many hundreds of years.

After many years making wine in Burgundy, Davy returned to his homeland, releasing his first wines from the 2007 vintage.

Along with his business partner Nicolas Laugerotte, they make rich but crunchy expressions of Champagne, reflecting the rolling limestone hills of the area (which is not too far from Chablis).

Young Davy has a modern outlook on an old industry, moving towards complete sustainability across all areas of the business.

Additional Info

From The Importer

The base wine for the Recolte Rose starts as a Blanc de Noirs of Pinot Noir with an addition of Pinot Meunier giving it its salmon-pink hue. Pinot Meunier is not as common in the Cote des Bar as Pinot Noir but winemaker Davy Dosnon feels that its bring a lovely spice and fruit to his Rose. With the base wine fermented and aged in used Puligny-Montrachet barrels and a minimum of 2 years aging in bottle with a dosage of 7g/L it bears all the hallmarks of the Donson style – pure, focused, intensely mineral but with a clear, spicy, red-fruit and orange peel lift to the flavours.

Blend : Pinot Noir (95%), Pinot Meunier (5%)

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews


"Light, bright orange. Redcurrant, orange zest, jasmine and a hint of dusty minerals on the seductively perfumed nose. Juicy, vibrant and taut, offering powerful, spice- and mineral-accented flavours of red berries and candied orange peel. Silky and expansive on a finish resounding with orange and mineral notes." – Josh Raynolds (Vinous)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
