A beautiful pale pink hue with amber glints reminiscent of the color of apricots, enhanced by discreet, pearly bubbles and incomparable finesse. Intensely perfumed, the complex nose immediately announces a powerful, structured, great rosé wine. The Pinots Noirs, vinified as still red (8% of the blend) give the wine a particular aroma: that which comes from a simmering pot of bubbling strawberry jam, candied fruit mingled with mild spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, honey and pink praline. A true journey through flavor, the palate revels in the creamy sensation of juicy plums. This wine is characterized by a silky texture reminiscent of fig pie, pine nuts, and sweet pastries. Spicier notes of liquorish and cumin then come into play. The finish is warm and round, marked by notes of blackberry tea, cherries, pink peppercorns and fresh figs.

Wine SpectatorThis focused rosé Champagne offers a mousse with the texture of raw silk, which swathes the firm frame in layers of roasted hazelnut, baked peach, toasted brioche and crème de cassis flavors, with a rich, smoky underpinning and accents of candied kumquat, espresso and ground ginger and cumin that expand on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 100 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a pale-colored wine with a finely wrought texture and great fruit. It is tight and mineral on the one hand, but balanced with the crispest red-currant flavors that offer a bright line in acidity. Delicious hints of age round out the final fresh aftertaste.
