Don’t mind the label! Easily, along with Selosse, my favorite Rosé. IMO, there’s those two and then everyone else. Probably a common consensus. I love the bracing acidity and tension that compliments the super rich strawberry & raspberry fruit, chalky minerality and sea spray salinity. There’s superb midpalate intensity and density, that’s concluded with a finish that just doesn’t let up. It will certainly age very well, but it’s so enjoyable now. Begs for a Burgundy glass. — 25 days ago

Pale pinkish orange with delicate vivacious bubbles. Smells of summer. Aromas of raspberries and orange peel initially with more floral notes. Bruised strawberries, smoke, and crushed herbs. Energetic is the word of the day here. This packs much power and liveliness into the glass. The vinous nature is striking and the 12% of still red wine certainly has its say.
Predominantly Pinot Noir with 25% of Chardonnay from Grand Cru terroir in Aÿ. Graceful, yet intense there’s a sense of heft and substance here. Also a sense of freshness. The palate follows the nose with more pronounced red berries and soft floral notes. Spices, mint, and toasted bread. A beautiful rosé perfect for this time of year from an excellent grower house. — a month ago
