Details

'100% Pinot Noir from 10 different Crus, predominantly Montagne de Reims, including Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, and Tour-sur-Marne ; hand-sorted.

…This wine has achieved that elusive ideal of volume and finesse; the world’s best-selling rosé Champagne epitomises the ultra-restraint of rosé’s finest expression. All the more remarkable for the challenging saigneé method… medium salmon hue [a] beautifully elegant expression of strawberry hull, red cherry and pink pepper, with and enticing waft of flinty, reductive aroma, opening in time to the glorious depth of black cherries. A delightfully composed rosé of excellent line, energetic acid backbone and softly mineral mouthfeel…’

Tyson Stelzer, the Champagne Guide 2016-2017

 

 


"Rose' was long regarded as the illegitimate offspring of Champagne. This is 100% pinot noir, rather than a blend coloured by pinot noir red wine. The full salmon colour is an immediate indication of its provenance, the bouquet complex and alluring, leading directly into the cherry and strawberry flavours of the long, sustained palate; excellent finish and aftertaste."
James Halliday, Top 100 Wines
