| « Rosés are usually enjoyed while they are still young and fresh, but I was looking for that complexity and fullness that exceptional wines acquire only after a very long maturation. I didn’t want to offer a rosé that had merely aged well... I wanted to combine the freshness and youth of a rosé wine with the essence of a great Vintage. The key element in accomplishing this feat was going to be the liqueur ! » Jean-François Clouet
Spiritum blends the essence of a great Vintage with the freshness of a vibrant Rosé.
It took months and countless trials to find the perfect balance for this liqueur, prepared with a 1996 Grand Cru Vintage from our Bouzy vineyards.
A very low concentration, half that of a classic liqueur — 300 grams per liter instead of the 600 grams per liter usual in Champagne — meant that a higher proportion of the Vintage could be added to the finished rosé.
Spiritum is a magic show for the senses, with the liqueur as the wand that sparks this alchemy, combining the freshness of the rosé wine with the essence of one of the greatest vintages of the last century.
The dosage is the finishing touch that fully reveals the spirit of the vintage
