NV AR Lenoble - Champagne Brut Rose Terroirs (750ml)


Quantity in Stock: 60+ bottles

Wine Advocate: 92 Points

The NV Brut Ros? Terroirs Chouilly-Bisseuil is an assemblage of 88% Chardonnay from Chouilly Grand Cru and 12% Pinot Noir from Bisseuil 1er Cru, predominantly based on the 2012 vintage plus 28% reserve wines and aged for five years before release. Partly aged in oak (20%), this ros? displays a unique color that oscillates between bright apricot, onion and gold. The bouquet is highly finessed and ethereal in its fruit aromas. Pure, fine and subtle on the palate, this is a dry, fresh, elegant, well-structured and mineral ros? that shows a lot of the finesse and grace of Chardonnay and the persistent finish of a delicate Pinot Noir. Tasted April 2018.-SR

(90% Chardonnay from the grand cru village of Chouilly and 10% still Pinot Noir; around 5 g/l dosage; L13246103711): Light, bright orange. Vibrant, mineral-driven red berry, orange zest and jasmine aromas are complemented by deeper suggestions of smoky lees and anise. Rich and broad yet surprisingly lively on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that are given lift and cut by juicy acidity. Finishes taut and stony, with echoing red fruit and leesy nuances. This robust yet tensile pink Champagne would work well with rich fish dishes or even lighter poultry preparations; it would also be fantastic with raw or rare tuna or salmon.-JR
