This had an impressive combination of power from top Pinot and refreshment from the high acid 2008 vintage. Mr. DeMarville's first vintage as cellar master and an impressive debut!

A bright rose color with a touch of copper. Tiny, delicate bubbles that are effusive. The nose is fruity and generous with wild strawberries, cherries, and orange zest. Citrus notes come into play with grapefruits and a dash of lemon. Clearly defined rose petals accompany cinnamon and nutmeg. Over time, freshly baked vanilla brioche comes to the fore.

The gulf between Veuve’s vintage bottling and the entry level rosé is vast and deep. Harmonious, elegant, and deft. A blend of 61/34/5 PN/CH/PM with 14% of still red wine from Bouzy with a dosage of 8 g/l. Disgorged in November of 2016 so it’s mature already but has years and years to go. This is one of the more well defined rosés around and one that will easily improve over time. Restrained acidity but terrific in the mouth.

Plenty of sex and emotion here. Indubitably a Grande Marque upon tasting, there’s plenty of complexity and drama here. The palate provides chalk and pastries. Beautiful red fruits along with herbs and spices. Long finish. A stunner of a champagne. Spectacular today but what will it be tomorrow?

What to drink when your daughter turns 12 today? Exactly!
Will check in later for the score. Back to the party first 🥳!
Loads of strawberries, some raspberries too. Nice hint of pear and even some tropical fruit. Enough acidity and some grapefruit bitters to make it an interesting wine. Real yummie treat. Fine pearly mousse. Bottle was empty before we knew....

Celebrating back-to-back work anniversaries with my wife 🥂 Lovely nose on this vintage Rosé bubbly from house VCP. Crisp strawberries, orange rind, and Provençal spices on the nose with an elegant richness and poise on the palate that certainly denotes its age while also revealing an underlying youthfulness and vitality that suggests this has many more uphill years yet to live. Disgorged 11/2017.
