Intro: Our House is located in a very famous terroir in Montagne de Reims, Verzy. This is where we have grown vines for 13 generations with passion and the wish of transmission of our know how always in mind.
Our family owns vineyard in Champagne since 1633, and André Sacy, in 1962, make the decision to produce Champagne, creating at the beginning Champagne Sacy Père et Fils which will become Champagne Louis de Sacy in 1986, named after our brilliant ancestor.
Then, his son, Alain Sacy, made Louis de Sacy grow in France and also developed the export that is now an important part of our business.
Yaël and Jonathan Sacy, after different work experiences in France and abroad, joined the family business in 2012 to continue what has been built and develop the notoriety of the brand.


Description: With a very elegant salmon color the Rose Grand Cru is blend of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier. The nose offers a palette of red fruits, wild berries, pears and some notes of tobacco. This dry, full bodied rose, with a well-balanced structure and a long finish is perfect as an aperitif and ideal for accompanying meals. The character and elegance of this Rose make those moments special and experience to enjoy and remember.

Vinification: This "skin contact maceration" Rosé is elaborated from a selected parcel called "Les Buissons" which has a very good exposure right at the entrance of the village of Verzy. This parcel is only Pinot Noir and it is 50 years old. 10% Pinot Meunier is added to the blend.

Review: WINE SPECTATOR score: 90/100
A firm rosé made for food, with a rich, smoky underpinning and a finely detailed mousse to support the subtle flavors of wild strawberry and raspberry, fresh forest and salted almond.
WINE ENTHUSIAST score: 90/100 & EDITOR'S CHOICE
This pale-colored rosé is all about fruit. It is packed with attractive raspberry and red currant flavors that are lifted by the crisp texture and acidity. It has a good depth of flavor with its tangy aftertaste and final burst of fruit.
