This delightful Brut Rosé is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier made with grapes from 25 year old vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Marne Valley. As is common for rosé Champagne, it also includes 18% of still red wine made from Premier Cru fruit. The final blend was aged for 28 months in bottle before receiving a dosage of 11 grams per liter at disgorgement. A subtle, yeasty note accompanies the fresh aromas of wild strawberry and Rainier cherry on the nose, which become juicy and bright red-fruited flavors on the medium-bodied palate. Given the somewhat generous dosage (at least compared to most of the Champagnes we purchase that are typically under 10 and still on the very dry scale for most Champagnes), the finish is crisp and neat with refreshing, persistent bubbles and a fine sense of acidity.
