Camille Saves Brut Rose
|Region||France, Champagne, Bouzy|
The NV Brut Rose is a big, lusty wine bursting with rich, dark red fruit, flowers and mint. This large scaled, broad shouldered wine saturates the palate with layer after layer of flavor. It is a fabulous effort. The Rose is 60% Chardonnay, 28% Pinot Noir and 12% still Pinot, all from Bouzy. This is Lot# 9408. Disgorged January 2011.
With vines in the Grand Cru village of Bouzy, this producer has a fine palette at its disposal. The rosé-crisp with Chardonnay yet bolstered with rich Pinot Noir-is full bodied and packed with raspberry and red currant fruit. Still young, it's lively with acidity and exuberant fruitiness. Drink from 2018.
Elegant, with a fine texture and firm structure. Berry, lemon and yeast notes prevail, and the finish is dry and tactile. Nice lingering berry aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.
