Brut Rosé Vertus Champagne Blend

LOVELY, elegant, brut, rosé Champagne made with 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir grapes, hailing predominantly from the Premier Cru Village of Vertus, along with other Premier Crus.

Light pink hue, like these spring tulips 🌷, with a fine mousse, and nose of raspberry, yellow apple, white blossom, almond, biscuit, brioche, and wet stone. The palate is consistent with the nose.

It is only for variety that I drink any other N/V Blanc de Blanc Grand Gru Champange. For just under $45, this is extremely hard to beat.

This is my style, primarily reductive with just the right amount of oxidative characteristics.

The nose is fresh & ripe with green & golden apple, very, ripe pineapple, mango, ripe green melon, lemon & lime zest, excellent white spice, cream brulee w/ burnt top, light, salted caramel, touch of fresh herbs, pronounced chalkiness, grey volcanics, sea fossils, saline, bread dough, baguette crust, limestone with spring flowers, yellow lilies and jasmine.

The palate is ripe, lush, lively & dazzling fresh. Shows gentle, beautiful mousse & micro oxygenation. Ripe with green & golden apple, very, ripe pineapple, mango, ripe green melon, lemon & lime zest, kiwi, grapefruit w/ a hint of sugar, white peach, honeycomb, excellent white spice with just the right even medium heat, cream brulee w/ burnt top, bruised Bosc pear, lemon meringue, vanilla bean, light, salted caramel, nougat, silvered almonds, touch of fresh herbs, pronounced chalkiness, grippy grey volcanics, sea fossils, saline, bread dough, baguette crust, limestone with spring flowers, yellow lilies and jasmine. The acidity is lively & simply perfect. The long, rich, well polished & balanced, finishes gently & persistently on the palate with soft spice in the long set.

If you can receive wine shipments from K&L Wine Merchants in SF, you owe it to yourself to order some bottles of this cuvée. They are the only retailer in the US Launois allows to rep their cuvées. Guarantee you won’t regret it.

Wine that bridges the palate from the end of white cheeses to vinaigrette salad.

Had to kick it off with champagne. Good richness to counter the high acidity. A lovely btl.

Grande Cuvée Côte des Bar Brut Champagne Blend

Subtle hint of petrol, which some people dig, but to me seems a little out of place in a Champagne. Nevertheless, it’s cheaper than Veuve Cliquot and knocks the socks off most Proseccos. Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby. — 2 years ago
