Pompadour Brut Rosé celebrates the life and times of Madame de Pompadour (mistress of Louis XV) credited with introducing Champagne to the court. Blend of 58% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay, aromas of floral strawberry scents with yeasty notes on good mousse and bubble flow. On the palate raspberry and strawberry flavors with round yeasty tones adding bits of vanilla. Well balanced, lingering ending in true brut style, dry with yeasty mineral character. A joy to drink.

Cherry cola without weight. Or is it strawberry soda without the sugar? Either way I adore. An unsweet sweetheart.

A blend of 58/42 pinot noir and Chardonnay from the 2012 vintage. Tart strawberry and raspberry fruit, pretty floral notes with a light briny mineral note leaves the tongue salivating for food. Fresh floral notes very balanced. Excellent+

Nice pink rose pedals on the nose and palate. Ripe bright strawberries, peach, watermelon, ripe cooked rhubarb, really nice chalk...love it , nice acidity, small bubbles and strong ripe fruity finish.
