Our Rosé Grand Cru is an original cuvée, which combines the finesse of Chardonnay (90%) with the power and fruitiness of Pinot Noir red wine (10%) from the village of Ambonnay, another historic Grand Cru village of Champagne. Its color is a pale pink, a marriage of amber and ruby. The nose is dominated by fresh blackberries and blackcurrants. On the palate, the attack is lively and is testament of a perfect balance, recalling the strong personality of the Pinot Noir grape. The long finish is refined and at the same time Our Rosé both charms and seduces.

The pale pink colored NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru (LR2012) is a round, fresh and fruity fizz based on 90% Côte de Blancs Chardonnay and 10% Ambonnay Pinot Noir red wine, all Grand Cru. Red and black currant aromas along with blueberry and ripe blackberry flavors on the nose lead to a full flavored, elegant and charming palate. It has a long, intense and well-structured finish. This is an in the sunshine wine that can also be served with food. It has a lot of Pinot character.

Here's a finely meshed rosé that's fresh and fragrant, with a hint of spring forest, while subtle flavors of dried white cherry, salted almond, whole-grain toast and orange zest are framed by mouthwatering acidity. Disgorged May 2012. Drink now through 2018. 30 cases imported.

The 10% Pinot Noir in this otherwise Chardonnay-dominant blend adds an attractive, light pink color. It is crisp and fragrant. Pinot Noir's tannins barely show, while Chardonnay's apple-driven acidity comes through strongly.
