“rosé de saignée undergoes a proprietary cold-soak maceration at harvest maximizing freshness and vitality utilizing the rare saignée method. The pale salmon-hued nectar draws you near with its rich and seductive bouquet. On the palate, luscious fresh red fruit and extra-fine mousse harmonize to create a long, succulent finish.”
The package available in a chocolate brown, as well as the special designed bottle is also a work of art adding a rich brown metallic embossed pattern and embellishments handcrafted and “applied by the finest artisans in Champagne,” ensuring no two bottles are ever exactly alike, which gives the brand by the OVO front man an exclusivity in the spirit industry that no entertainer has.
Currently available in Reserve and Rosé varietals, Mod Sélection is priced at $300 and $400 respectively for 750 ml bottles, with magnums and jeroboams to come for the ballers who will surely be drinking this stuff in large quantities. Look for single vineyard, vintage, blanc de blancs and other expressions to be available in the months ahead.
