Press & Reviews
(70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay, from Verzenay and Verzy; disgorged in August, 2012 after 30 months on its lees): Light, bright pink. Vibrant strawberry, raspberry, anise and rose pastille aromas show impressive clarity. Juicy and sharply delineated, offering spicy red berry and blood orange flavors with subtle accents of toasted bread, lavender and blood orange. Extremely elegant and aromatically complex rose with outstanding finishing cut and persistence.
The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is quite subtle and understated in this vintage. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers, mint and sweet spices grace the palate in an exquisite Rosé that is pure elegance and polish. Hard candy, rose petals and mint linger on the finish. This is one of the silkier wines in David Pehu's range. The Brut Rosé is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, mostly 2010 vintage. This bottle was disgorged in June 2012.
