Tasting Note: This pale pink champagne has flecks of gold in the light with a persistent mousse. On the nose: aromas of red fruits and hints of citrus. A well-balanced acidic and delicate palate of strawberries and raspberries leads to a brioche mid-palate. On the finish: a hint of spice and a continued theme of red berries and citrus. It is no surprise this rosé is so renowned.

Expert Reviews
92/100
Roger Voss
“This pale-pink wine is stylish, crisp and relatively dry. Full of wild strawberry and citrus, it is lively, bright and lightly perfumed. The texture shows a touch of tannin as well as delicate minerality. Drink this well-balanced wine now.”
92/100
Josh Raynolds
“(45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier; 8 g/l dosage; L206454 17741): Pale orange. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas, with suave mineral and smoky lees notes adding complexity. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing very good punch to its strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. Opens up smoothly with air and picks up a bitter rhubarb quality that lingers onto the long, tightly focused finish. This bottling showed more brawny character than many past renditions of this cuvée, but with no lack of vivacity.”

Jancis Robinson MW
“Tasted blind. Very pale greyish salmon. Rich rose-petal aroma with quite a bit of voluptuous sweetness. Crisp acidity. Brisk but satisfying. Slightly astringent end.
Drink 2018-2024”
16.5/20
Richard Hemming MW
“Very pale onion skin, and aroms that only whisper at red fruit. Spicy, delicate, bright. (RH)”
