The best sextant vintage of Pinot yet! Vibrant bright cherry, lively wine that evolves in the glass. Perfect thanksgiving wine, which is why I paired it with the delicate pork tenderloin tonight. Has enough racy acid to challenge the vinaigrette accompanying the couscous salad. Lovely! ‘Tis the season! www.freerunjuicewine.com — comment and tag me if you would like a discount code!

Deep salmon color with some copper hints. Medium intensity perlage. Displaying a highly expressive bouquet of strawberry and pink grapefruit, along with raspberries and spice. Trace notes of brioche and honey compliment. Luscious cream and a touch of oak.
100% Pinot Meunier and 2.5 grs dosage, this is taut and delightfully dry, as the extra brut would suggest. High acidity and vibrant as all get out. Very crisp and racy, this is a different breed. Expertly balanced, this is full bodied and more than a bit hedonistic.
On the palate, the fruit is remarkably crisp and fresh. The red fruit is effervescent on the tongue and the generous amount of spice balances things out. Rose petal, dried herbs, and mint also make an appearance. Just a spectacular rosé all around. Not for the faint of heart but it’s just right for me. — 3 years ago
Incredible value, consistently excellent, and a fine example of grower champagne that punches well above its weight. Lemon and lemon curd and green apple and yeast/brioche. Aggressively mineral and taut as a wire but round on the palate after the zing wears away, with a long and zesty finish that lingers. This is always an excellent food wine and better that than a cocktail wine. Somehow it both cuts and amplified everything I’ve ever paired it with. — 5 years ago
