Rosé 2020

Watermelon. Lush. Juicy.

This Rosé is 100% Pinot Meunier and from our original Meunier block. Pinot Meunier is thought to be a mutation of the more celebrated Pinot Noir grape and is most commonly appreciated for the fruitiness and crisp detail it brings to a Champagne cuvée.

These attributes lending it beautifully to Rosé production. This example is fashionably pale pink, and though delicate in appearance has a prominent nose, wonderful soft fruity texture and a fullness of palate.

"Fresh and vibrant, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows nectarine, fig and floral aromas with a hint of sweet strawberry. It's juicy and refreshing on the palate, delivering fine texture and bright acidity, making it immediately appealing."

"Very floral bouquet with white and red roses then aromas of red melon and raspberry, some red apple skin and cherry. Plush, ripe, fruity, fresh, crunchy and dry on the finish. A lovely example with a light minerality adding texture and length."
