Whoa! Such a perfect pairing to a celebratory view with great friends. Almond oil, hazelnut, a decided creamy texture and viscosity and complexity in abundance. Mmmmmm.

I love the earthiness on this rosé, followed by pink flowers, rose petals, tart red fruit, red currant, a tiny bit of chai tea, and some cheese rind. Don't drink this too cold if you want the full expression of the many layers in this intriguing and expressive Champagne!

2008 base. 21 eme edition. Best Krug Rose in several years. Broad at this point, but there is edginess lurking. Deep red fruit.
