Don't hurry over this. Rosé Champagne is often regarded as a charm incarnate, well-rounded, as pretty on the palate as it is to the eye. This pale salmon rosé is certainly appealing to look at, as its mousse is steady as you like; but it's when you take time to engage with its bready, quietly fragrant scents and the shaping, architectural breadth of its flavours that you'll discover the quality of this very gastronomic, vinous and rewardingly understated wine. The edge and cut of the vintage plays a key role in shaping and structuring the slow, teasing roll of its pomelo and tangerine-peel fruits. A pink Champagne for fine-wine lovers.
