A little break from the Billecart Salmon Rosé. The fruits are a little deeper & darker than the Billecart. Black cherries, black raspberries, dark cherries, cherries, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, notes of citrus, soft smooth chalkiness that doesn’t penetrate the palate as deep or as sharp as the Billecart. Fuller bodied. The volcanic mineral are soft and beautiful. Micro bubbles and understated acidity that is still very nice. Brioche, saline, seashells, nicely textured and layered with a rich beautiful finish. Photos of; their house, Dom Thierry Ruinart, cellar and one of their vineyards.

As delicious as it is good looking. A beautiful shade of pink, flavors of rose petal, strawberry, just the right amount of residual sugar.

£50 at Laithwaites. Tastes alright, but is the utter epitome of bad value - the price gets you branding, but zero complexity. Shameful really.

Pretty red berry fruits wild strawberry with rosé petal perfume and red licorice notes. Smooth creamy texture with a fresh finish echoing the nuance from the nose through the finish. Finish 45+

A deep rose-orange color, the deep color hue makes you brace for power and red wine notes. The palate however reveals precision, elegance and freshness with strength in its texture from the bubbles and acidity.
