    Winemaker's Notes:

    "That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" said William Shakespeare, and sweet is this rose-smelling Brut Rosé. From its pale salmon-pink depths, rise aromas of rose petals, spring's first strawberries, cherry blossoms, and just a hint of hay in a sun-drenched summer field. This Rosé shows a complex and elegant palate of red berries with underpinnings of licorice, guava, and filo pastry, all supported by a wonderfully slaty acidity and a delicate, yet persistent mousse. This is truly one of those "Ah-ha" moment wines that show why great Rosé never goes out of style.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Argyle's 2009 Brut Rose mingles Pinot Noir with 42% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. Strikingly redolent of a florist’s shop in its combination of illusive floral perfume with greenery, as well as intimating the cherry, red raspberry, and almond paste that then lusciously and buoyantly inform the palate, this pushes up to the limit of what I'd want to experience in sweetness for a wine already so forwardly fruity, but finishes with admirable persistence and at once soothingly and vivaciously. 'Five years ago,' relates Soles, 'is when I (began) put(ting) a lot of Meunier in this cuvee, and that’s when the floral(s) came up.'
