Champagne Allegeance Marie Courtin , 100% Pinot Noir Rose de Maceration, Biodynamic Champagne, natural yeast fermentation, 0 added sulphur, this is wow factor pink Champagne of unique purity and complexity. Allegeance is very, very small production wine from Dominique Moreau. The wine spends several days macerating with the biodynamic Pinot Noir berries and then is fermented wild to produce a rich rose before going into the bottle for its second fermentation with no sulphur added. Rose de Maceration offers a unique expression of Champagne, something akin to red burgundy with bubbles. Dominique's is delicious wine, rich, deep, toasty, a wine to savour with fine foods.
