Introducing Sacré Sauvage, an original, true Champagne cocktail made with the renowned Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage!
Piper-Heidsieck Chef de Cave Régis Camus and Paris mixologist Joseph Biolatto, masters of the art of blending, collaborated to create Sacré Sauvage. Their aim was to take the wild red fruit and blood orange aromas of Rosé Sauvage to new heights with the addition of just a few classic ingredients.
The drink they’ve created is lively and exotic – perfect for the summer and perfectly unexpected in a world now awash in rosé. The key, of course, is Rosé Sauvage, a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. Aged 24 months, it’s a bold, dark-hued rosé, structured and full-bodied and yet distinctly elegant.
“Do not get inspired, inspire,” says Régis Camus, echoing a philosophy embodied in Sacré Sauvage, where simplicity becomes spectacular. See for yourself!
