Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé

Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé

Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is made of 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different crus situated mainly in Montagne de Reims. This Champagne gets its glorious pink color and rounded red fruit flavors from a process known as “saigneé,” in which the skins of the grapes are left in contact with the juice for three days.

Lapin Rouillé Champagne

Lapin Rouillé Champagne

Lapin Rouillé Champagne is one of the first female black-owned Champagne brands in Europe. Sourced from a small single estate producer near Reims, the wine is made from 100% Pinot Meunier grapes – a variety known for its delicate, dry, and floral flavors.

The release is the brainchild of Nichole Johnson, Rusty Rabbit founder, and CEO. As well as her new status in the Champagne world, Ms. Johnson is also the world’s only female black owner of a liquor importer, exporter, and distributor.

From Blaine, The Fizz is Female Founder: 

“Lapin Rouillé is by far one of my favorite new champagne discoveries for a handful of reasons. For one, I’ve been obsessing with Meunier dominant champagnes for a while now and this baby is 100% Pinot Meunier. The branding and packaging is modern and fun but the marketing definitely doesn’t take away from the quality of this juice which let’s be honest, sometimes the flashier the bottle, the less impressive the liquid.

And, this champagne is female-owned by our dear friend, Nichole Johnson who is the first black female to own a Champagne in the UK. Lapin Rouillé Champagne is the first offering from Rusty Rabbit Drinks, a procurement business, designing and sourcing promotional products for an extensive client portfolio as well as an import and distribution business.”
