Wine Review: A true salmon color, this Champagne Rose has pronounced notes of kumquats, pink grapefruit, mint, limestone, and apricot. The palate is just as nuanced but with the added depth of mature acidity, hints of oak, and a bread-like mouthfeel. The finish is lengthy with the fruit-filled flavors lingering to the very last second. This is a sipper if you ask me, but a nice smoked halibut or even a roasted duck would pair nicely. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: To the eyes, this Rosé is brilliant and luminous with light coppered hints. The very tiny bubbles are very active, dynamic on the surface and burst delicately into the glass. On the nose there are red fruit aromas but subtle and delicate: raspberries, a touch of blackberry, as light hint of violet. A lot of freshness for this rosé, fresh fruits. On the palate: The first attack is clear and cut, very fresh, very aromatic but subtle. Chalky notes and gourmand, sweet notes of candies (berlingot). Pair medallions of grilled lobster or a carpaccio of red tuna.
