Fits the bill nicely for a rosé champagne that pairs well with food. I think the color caught me off guard...deep ruby colored in the glass. Aromatically it shows lots of strawberries, rhubarb, limestone and rich orange blossom. Balanced and “down the middle” on the palate...not super light and refreshing (like Billecart) but obviously not super rich and oxidative (like Krug). Strawberry cream, gummy fruits and chalk round out the finish. Quite classic. At the price point, Charles Heidsieck Rosé is my preference due to a more full bodied and complex profile. — 2 days ago
A Valentines Day tipple with the missus and what a beautiful Champagne it was. Pale Lemon in colour with an ultra fine persistent bead. Aromas of sweet citrus, Nougat, mineral, toast, honey and stone fruit which transfer through to the palate. Needless to say marvellous complexity in this 100% Chardonnay. Fermented in stainless steel and given a full malolactic fermentation. Dosage 4.5 grams per Litre. Disgorged October 2016. One of the 1001 wines and a wonderful treat from Champagne’s oldest firm. Made entirely from Chardonnay Grand Crus. — 14 days ago
Its Friday & this just had to be worked in. 375ml.
Need some acid to marry up to our vinaigrette dressed salad.
The first sip threw a lot more raspberries than normal. Beautiful rich fruits of; blackberries, black cherries, summertime watermelon, well extracted pomegranate, mixed berry cola, cherry kirsch, saline, sea fossils, bread dough to baguette crust, great grey volcanics, excellent, grainy chalkiness with pink flowers framed in red & pink rose petals.

A delightful selection 👌🏻 Sad it’s my last bottle but thankful it can easily (and enjoyably) be acquired by taking a stroll out to the TX Hill Country to visit Alexander Vineyards’ tasting room. Chalky, Granny Smith apples, nice tartness, good body. — 5 days ago
