Wine Review: This pale copper colored Champagne from Henriot opens with very small streaming bubbles. The bouquet features a strawberry and red raspberry tart with hints of cherries, almonds and some bread dough. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with crisp acidity. It is mouthwatering. The favor profile is a tasty mineral influenced red cherry and lime blend with notes of mild strawberry. Hints of white pepper, almond macaroons and red plum. The finish is rather dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. This “Brut Rose” would pair well with Emeril’s crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken & Joe

Winemaker Notes: Pale pink in appearance and tinged with copper, with a fine and persistent bead in the glass. On the nose, this Champagne may surprise with its characteristic, complex intensity and appealing fruit-driven style. Red and dark berry fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and crunchy cherry, followed by freshly squeezed lemon, pink grapefruit and mandarin orange. Vegetal notes then follow in succession, offering blackcurrant bud and cloves, together with delicate iris-scented powder and finishing on delicious notes of candid fruits. Well-balanced on the palate, revealing incredible, unashamed persistence. Attractive balsamic and floral flavors pave the way for spicy notes, in a wave of great freshness. The tasting culminates in a lingering touch of sweetness.
