Wine Align, Julian Hitner ~ "A beautiful experience, enjoy over the next three years or more.....The best-selling wine of the operation, the NV Rosé (sourced exclusively from Premier Cru grapes from Chigny-Les Roses) delivers great expression, balance, and delicateness... Elegant scents of grapefruit, delicate yeasty biscuits, minerals, and a hint of dried herbs and spice. Complex, with excellent fruit (very stylish), balanced acidity, and a vibrant hint of grapefruit and mine- rals on the finish."

This beautiful Rosé Champagne (sourced exclusively from Premier Cru grapes) is pink champagne at its best! It is Gordon Ramsay's restaurants' best selling Rosé champagne, and out-rates the big name champagnes at half the price. 

J. Dumangin Fils are a small family-run Champagne House based in the village of Chigny-les-Roses south of Reims. Dumangin have a long history overflowing with fantastic winemakers, some with names borrowed from Greek legend. The first family member to turn his hands to winemaking was Firmin Dumangin, born in 1650. Hippolyte Dumangin, born 1851, was the first to market champagne under the Dumangin brand. Achille Dumangin named a variety after himself around 1909. Jacky Dumangin achieved fame for a Premier Cru Champagne which won an impressive number awards during his 30 years at the helm. The current head of House Dumangin has a disappointingly French name: Gilles. He is the 5th generation of the family to produce champagne.

The Dumangin family’s tireless efforts to produce the best possible Champagne from their own grapes was recognised by the prestigious French wine guide, the Guide Hachette des Vins, in 2008. The bible of the French wine industry awarded the Dumangin Grand Réserve a Coup de Cœur. The Coup de Coeur (judges' favourite) is the Guide Hachette’s highest possible recommendation.
