Bless Your Heart Rosé is made in France in the Champagne region from the commune of Vertus, a village in the very south of Champagne. The winemaking utilizes techniques of the highest level of luxury. The wine is fermented and aged in French oak barrels. Only native yeasts are used during primary fermentation.
The grapes are from very old vineyards, over 60 years old, with small berries. Bless Your Heart is 100% Pinot Noir. Traditionally cognac is used to dosage in Champagne. The dosage for Bless Your Heart is a secret, but rumor has it that part of it is composed of a tiny wee dram of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon hand carried to Champagne. This is a radical departure from tradition and is being recognized as a “game changer.” The result is a Champagne with incredible concentration, flavor and complexity.
