(roughly 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, with 9 g/l dosage; LAH9V): Dark, vivid pink. Ripe red berries, rose oil and tangerine on the nose, plus a subtle note of toasty lees. Bitter cherry and berry skin flavors give way to softer raspberry in the middle, with a tangy blood orange nuance adding cut and lift. Packs a punch but shows very good clarity and delineation, finishing round, smooth and quite long.
This subtle rose is notable more for balance and fine texture than the quiet flavor profile of ripe currant and berry fruit, candied kumquat, biscuit and ginger. A note of smoke-tinged minerality chimes in on the finish. Drink now through 2019. -AN
Rose petal pink color capped by roiling mass of tiny bubble coral-colored froth. Lightly spiced aroma evokes scents of cranberry, faint red cherry, baker’s yeast, red currant. Sour hard candy flavors of cherry and strawberry are refreshingly tart and mineral-like. Biscuity in the finish.
