Wine Spectator Review
Fragrant notes of ripe yellow apple and oyster shell are an aromatic thread, layered with apricot, candied pink grapefruit zest and toast point flavors in this elegant rose Champagne. A fine example of the aperitif style with its lacy texture and firm spine of racy acidity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Disgorged October 2020. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
Appearance: The pink copper color with a hint of raspberry when young evolves to salmon while ageing. The fine bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and very long ageing.
Nose: The initial aromas of redcurrant and red fruits evolve to morello cherry, wild strawberry and violet while breathing in the glass. A touch of lemon denotes the discrete presence of chardonnay. With age, aromas tend towards dark fruits like dark cherry, fig and blackberry.
Palate: Reveals red fruit captured at their full freshness. The finish is bright and long.
The Rose Premiere Cuvee is a great match to fine italian charcuterie, sushi, poultry or red fruit salad.
