2014 Brut Rosé
Always a favorite in our tasting room (and a favorite of mine!). This small lot of only 44 cases was disgorged Friday, September 30th. This methode Champenoise Brut Rosé sparkling wine is 100% Pinot Noir; it has a luscious mousse and a very fine bead. The colour is the palest of pink, the nose has all of the hallmarks of Olivet Grange fruit, including hints of fresh citrus, strawberry, tart cherry and brioche. A bright core of acid, along with a rich mouthfeel and a long finish showing great minerality all that leave a clean, crisp palate impression. We see this not only as an aperitif, but as a serious food wine for a main course or a dessert.
