Available for:
Orange hue with salmon pink tints. Patient, even effervescence. Spicy aromas of Sichuan pepper combined with sappy and floral notes of violet and gentian. Toast and mocha on the nose resulting in an elegant and concentrated bouquet. After aeration, intense fruity notes start to emerge along with concentrated notes of wild raspberries. The palate is fruity. The Pinot noir offers an intense fruitiness and a tight and juicy structure complemented by ripe, almost sweet tannins. The fruit and texture display remarkable depth and are starting to show a typical "Pinot" character.

Even better, the 2012 Starck Brut Nature Rosé offers a stunning nose of tart strawberries, rose petals, orange blossom, and ample rocky, minerality notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness, a pretty, beautifully balanced mouthfeel, and perfect balance. It's another brilliant Champagne to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.

The 2012 Brut Nature Rosé is rich, explosive and pulsing with energy. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon adds an infusion of 25% cold soaked Pinot Noir into the same base wine as the 2012 Brut Nature, an approach that works beautifully in bringing out the energy and focus that make Champagnes from Cumières so distinctive. Even with all of its power, the 2012 is delicate, airy and full of nuance. This is such a gorgeous wine. I would prefer to drink it on the younger side.

Firm, with racy acidity, this finely integrated rosé Champagne boasts a subtle undertow of smoky mineral and a lacy mousse supporting smoked almond, kumquat, dried white cherry and spun honey flavors that echo on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2030.
