Review:
Disgorged in July 2019, the latest release of Gaston Chiquet's NV Brut Rosé Premier Cru is showing very well, bursting with aromas of fresh peach, red berries, mint, green apples, rhubarb and pastry cream. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, crisp and fleshy, with a charming core of fruit, racy acids and a lingering, flavorful finish. This is an elegant, inviting Rosé based on Pinot Meunier.

A thread of smoky minerality defines this firm rosé, which offers a fine, detailed texture and subtle notes of ripe cherry and cherry blossom, cassis, biscuit and peach. Elegant. Disgorged February 2012. Drink now through 2018. 45 cases imported. –AN

Review:
(40% pinot meunier, 30% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay; aged for 39 months on its lees and disgorged in March of 2013): Light pink. Exotically perfumed scents of redcurrant, strawberry and potpourri, with a dusty mineral quality adding energy. Suave, silky red berry flavors are pure and precise, with energetic blood orange and buttered toast qualities appearing with aeration. Sappy and focused on the nervy finish, with the floral and mineral notes repeating.

Review:
The NV Brut Rosé is a model of finesse and elegance. Crushed rose petals, licorice, mint, sweet spices and red berries caress the palate in a feminine, graceful Champagne. In this release, the Brut Rosé is ethereal, light on its feet and absolutely impeccable. The Brut Rosé is 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, all vintage 2009, and done in steel. This bottle was disgorged in March 2013.
