The NV Brut Rose Premier Cru is a beautifully poised, centered wine. Predominantly Pinot Noir, the Rose impresses for its breadth and rich, voluminous personality. Hints of crushed flowers, Rose petals and sweet red berries linger on the refined, polished finish. The Rose is 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, including 18% still red Pinot. Disgorgement date: February 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016
This soft, warm rosé has plenty of Pinot Noir in the blend to give it weight. Raspberry and red plum notes accompany touches of tannin and minerality. The acidity is infectious, making this a great match for food.
