Pink Champagne or Rosé Champagne is always a popular choice of gift to add a splash of colour to a celebration or also for its feminine connotations. Pink Champagne is widely used to celebrate say the birth of a baby girl. Check out our selection of Pink Champagne gifts from the UK's leading online retailers.
Pink Champagne (also known as Rosé Champagne) can be produced by two main methods. The saigneé method involves leaving the clear juice of Pinot noir (black grapes) to macerate on its skins for a brief interval. The cost and risk associated with the saigneé or skin contact only technique means there are relatively few producers using this method, such as Louis Roederer, Laurent Perrier and Guy Charbaut.
The most widespread method of creating Pink Champagne involves adding a small amount of still Pinot noir red wine to the sparkling wine cuvee. Champagne is typically light in colour even when produced from darker grapes as the juice is extracted from the grapes via a process that minimises the amount of time the juice spends in contact with the skins which the source of colouration. The addition of a small amount of red wine during blending is allowed to produce the pink colouration during the production of Pink Champagne.
