2014 OGV Estate Brut Rosé
Always a favorite in our tasting room (and a favorite of Kathleen's), this small lot of méthode 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, leave a clean, crisp palate impression. We see this not only as an apéritif, but as a serious food wine for a main course or a dessert.
