Lapin Rouillé Non-Vintage Brut champagne is crafted using only hand-harvested Pinot Meunier grapes, from the heart of the Champagne region.
A basket of exotic fruits that combines freshness and delicacy, elegance and focus, this is a lovely example of a non-vintage single varietal expression with freshness and fruit richness all in balance, supported by a very elegant and long-lasting sparkle. Great to experience such harmony celebrating the skills of the cellar master. The depth, complexity, and length is a mark of an outstanding wine throughout.
Lapin Rouillé is presented in a distinctive red-wrapped bottle, showing off its inimitable gold rabbit logo, with a gold foil top covering the traditional wired cork. In a line-up of the world’s premium champagnes, it’s hard to miss.
