    June 16, 2016 - Delicate strawberry and raspberry with toasty and nutty flavors. Slightly more dosage than I prefer.

    February 14, 2016 - A non vintage wine that I've had for two years. Bright red raspberry and yeasty toast. Great match for smoked salmon.

    July 31, 2015 - Fresh and crisp. Nice balanced fruit and acidity. Peach, cherry, with a touch of lemon curd. Excellent with food.

  • bboard Likes this wine:

    December 23, 2014 - 1st time trying this, disgorged Nov 2013. Dark salmon, slight brownish/copper color, refreshing, decent amount of intensity, and ends with a slight bitterness finish, which was interesting. IMHO, intensity is similar to neighboring Roederer Estate Rose (although cellaring time from disgorged date would make a lot of differences). I still prefer Roederer Estate, but would drink this again.
