    December 31, 2015 - NYE dinner with lobsters and this fit the bill quite nicely. Not an exuberant, fruity rosé, but a more austere, understated wine that relied on elegance. A bit of toastiness added some complexity, and went well with the buttery lobster.

    August 12, 2014 - - Pink color and aromas of apple, lemon and licorice anise. It's balanced and has flavours of strawberry, honey and violet with a medium/full body. Polished texture with a medium finish - I have had this Champagne many times and I truly enjoy it. It's always a winner with friends and has hardly disappointed. Matches well with grilled chicken or shrimp. My take is this is wonderful Rose Champagne and glad to have lots.

    February 5, 2014 - This seems more the product of a classroom exercise or laboratory experiment than it does a vineyard. Granted, it's got nerve, and focused energy, but perhaps too focused and too nervy. Which is to say there's nothing classic, or traditional about this; it seems forced. Notwithstanding all of that, it's a bright, somewhat mineral driven, cava-esque aperitif wine. Absent the complexity that lees, toast, less sterile fruit, and depth might bring to the table, what we have here is an enjoyable $35 sparkler. 12,0% abv
