"Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy wanted the 'explosion' of the 2018 vintage (on which this wine is based) in this deep, vivacious rosé from sunny Cumières in the Grande Vallée, and he definitely found it. There's nothing shy here, with tropical fruit, poached strawberry, cranberry and orange leaping above a texture that, whilst certainly intense and grippy, retains an unlikely-seeming level of refreshment and drive, just touching on bay leaf spice and delicious bitterness without the toughness that darker Champagne rosés can sometimes suffer from. Joyous."

"The 2015 Extra Brut Blanc de Rosé is a very attractive wine, especially for the year. Done in the Rosé de Saignée style, this is an equal blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Crushed red berry fruit, herbs, ginger, mint and sage add tons of brightness to this mid-weight Champagne. Airy and gracious, the 2015 is impeccably balanced, even if the dosage feels a bit low at 1 gram per liter. I would not push my luck on aging, just to be safe. Disgorged: March, 2023."
