Another rendition of one of my favorite wines, a most sensual and erotic wine. An alluring deep salmon rose color in the glass with nice effervescence of small bubbles. The nose immediately shows as sweet, sweeter than I would expect but that soon dissipates. Strawberries up front with red cherries and a touch of apple. Crushed herbs and mild spice after some time. There’s a floral aspect here that’s outstanding, as well.
So many rosé champagnes are so similar in ambition and execution that it’s nice to find something that’s a marked step above. 90/10 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay and disgorged in October of 2019 with a dosage of 9 g/l. Nervy and thrilling, it’s an exciting champagne that doesn’t skimp on power. Good balance and structure with a vinous nature. Playful and teasing, without a trace of austerity.
Pure sex in the mouth with candied raspberries and more wild strawberries. Blood orange, grapefruit, and passion for days. Peaches, melons, and romance. A little chalk, a little lust. One of my favorites, year in year out. — 17 days ago
Fresh fruity pear like sweet. Toast, brioche. Energetic bubbles. Pineapple’s sweet and sour. @460/G(1760), domaine, 220403 — 3 months ago
wow. Wow. Wow. Stunning. Thick yet not heavy lime, lemon, pear, intertwined with minerals and lifted by perfectly integrated acidity. Leads with the lime, just beautiful wine. The texture and depth are impressive. I’ve been drinking 3 or 4 champagnes a week the past many weeks and this one leads the pack. Wow. — a month ago

Not as pepper-driven as previous vintage I’ve tasted but still enjoyable and highly quaffable. — a month ago
