A brilliant, flowing and shimmering light pink color, mottled with salmon pink specks in the depth of the glass with a vibrant flow of tiny bubbles creates a delicate ring of mousse at the top of the glass. A visual delight that promises a wonderfully fresh and complex victory.
The first aromas in the nose are of raspberry, wild strawberries, pink grapefruit. acacia blossom and peony with a touch of anise and mint. After breathing for a while, the wine reveals aromas of black currant, peach, passion fruit and an intoxicating scent of roses combined with creamy chalk, peeled almonds and licorice.
On the palate, the first sensation is smooth and fresh with a soft and creamy sparkling effect followed by a soft, fleshy fruitiness supported by the sharp citrus degree. The middle palette is round with a mineral quality that shows both chalky and marl and has width, fruitiness and a clear crisp in combination with salt and length in the mouth. It only takes a few seconds for the full depth of this Champagne to come through, beautifully balanced between an umami freshness and an intense sense of ripe fruit plus a light hint of spice, making all this an ideal aperitif Champagne. The finish, with its perfectly rated dosage, leaves a juicy fruity feel and a hint of salt. Set in an ever-changing swirl of freshness that reflects the extreme care and attention given to this Champagne Rosé Brut at every stage of its creation well into the vineyards.
