Fine balance between aromatic strength and the freshness of small red berries dominated by raspberry.

 Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 31 2015)
A rich streak of smoky minerality underscores this harmonious rose, with a creamy bead and ripe blackberry and plum fruit, well-spiced and accented by hints of licorice drop, citrus zest and toasted raisin bread. Juicy finish. Drink now through 2018. 750 cases imported.-AN
 Vinous 92 points (Jan 2015)
(45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir; 8 g/l dosage; L14198): Light, bright orange. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of pomegranate, raspberry and tangerine, plus a suave note of smoky lees. Bitter rhubarb and cherry skin flavors give way to softer, sweeter raspberry in the mid-palate, with gentle minerality adding spine and lift. Packs a solid punch but comes off surprisingly lithe for its power. Finishes with excellent clarity, a subtle vanilla quality and strong mineral-driven persistence. In the context of top-drawer pink Champagne this bottling always delivers outstanding value. -- Josh Raynolds

Wine maker notes
45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir

A light-rose color with light copper glints. Fine, extremely long-lasting bubbles. The Chardonnay aromas mingle subtlety with the fruity bouquet of Pinot Noir. Fine balance between aromatic strength and the freshness of the small red berries dominated by raspberry.
