Disgorged December 2016, the NV Brut Rose is a blend of 54% Pinot Noir and 46% Chardonnay with 5.7 grams per liter of residual sugar. It offers attractive scents of red cherries and a punnet of strawberries on a summer's day. Fine delineation and focus here, if not the complexity you might expect in a top-flight Rosé. The palate is well balanced with commendable weight and volume in the mouth. This is not a shy retiring flower, but a flavor-packed sparkling Rosé that should delight for the next 3-4 years.
Pale silver-pink. Lively, fruit-driven scents of strawberry, raspberry and flowers; I might have picked this blind as Pinot from the nose. Conveys a touch of sweetness but lovely acidity frames the wine's lively red berry and cherry fruit flavors. Not the most refined mousse but easy to drink, and with good backbone and acidity. Finishes with a touch of mineral firmness and very good length. A distinctly open-knit, rather commercial style but very good.
