Based on the 2016 vintage and disgorged in July 2019 with 6.5 grams per liter dosage, the NV Brut Rosé de Blancs 1er Cru opens in the glass with an inviting bouquet of crisp red fruits, licorice, dried flowers and toasted sourdough. Medium-bodied, racy and fine-boned, it's tensile and chalky, its style dominated by its Chardonnay base.See detailed press review

Disgorged in October 2017, the latest rendition of the NV Brut Rosé de Blancs 1er Cru is showing nicely, offering up aromas of red berries, citrus oil, green apples and warm biscuits. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, bright and delicate, with an ultra-fine mousse, tangy acids and an elegantly chalky finish. This is an unusually refined, Chardonnay-based rosé that will drink well for a decade.See detailed press review
