Just take a look at this color. So striking. So sexy. Nice perlage and cream. The nose is so crisp and fresh. Pears and lively red cherries alongside mangoes. Freshly baked bread aromas are very nice here, as well are the grapefruit and strawberry.
Yet another young hotshot champagne maker, Aurelien Gerbais from the Aube. A friend and neighbor of Cédric Bouchard and that’s all you need to know. 50/25/25 PN/CH/Pinot Blanc with an extra brut dosage of 3 g/l. The low dosage avoids the trap of being austere, but rather it’s an inviting and gracious Rosé. The addition of 10% Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir gives it that beautifully sexy color and viscosity.
Dry with breathtaking acidity, the terroir really speaks here. The palate follows the nose with more summer berries and light yeast. So lovely, so sleek. Good sex in a bottle. If you see these, get them. — a month ago
Yowza. What a nose. Superb aromas. Clay, blueberries and granite. Deep florals. So clean and pure. Amazing layering. Dude is so so underrated. Palate is pure, juicy, dark and has stunning texture. Awesome bounce and freshness. So much granite and freshness. Long and so so complex. Really really great. Real serious concentration here. Pure and deep. Sweet and ripe tannins and finishes peppery. — 4 months ago
Little boozy and simple but good. And pricey. — 5 months ago
Oaky plum toasted and oh so smooth after a long day deep sea fishing. The perfect compliment to late night french cuisine and sunburns. I’m going to sleep so well! @MaisonBistroChs in Charkeston SC — 3 months ago
Nice Ruby color with an array of fruit, floral and spice aromas. On the palate cherry, currant and raspberry flavors with some fresh cinnamon spice and tea notes. Vibrant acidity, elegant fine tannins, well balanced just starting to wake up, long finish ending with slight earthy notes, plenty of depth, will continue to develop. — 4 months ago

Clunky bitter and tasted boozier than the 11% would suggest. Molto rustico. — 5 months ago
