A nice switch up from the Billecart Salmon Rosé. On the nose; red fruit blend, fresh dark florals and red roses. The palate fruits are deeper/darker. Ripe; black cherries, black raspberries, strawberries, cherries w/ a touch of liqueur. Baguette crust, medium intensity of gray volcanic minerals, soft, powdery minerals with a touch of grittiness, beautiful acid and a rich, round, polished finish. Photos of; House of Ruinart, cellar, very old private cellar that I would love to dive into & one of their Grand Cru Vineyards. 375ml

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.

Crisp and creamy with notes of toasted brioche with strawberry jam, red apple skin and rose pedals

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.
