Retail $69. On the dark side for rosé champagne and a bit musty initially. Strangely, there is a chocolate note on the palate. We have had this for a bit and the evolution seems to be going in a wonderful direction. Deep, rich, and that chocolate thing. Just short of a whoa. thedrunkencyclist.com
Compared to the Vintage Rosé this is rather poor. Green notes, asparagus, gooseberries, bell pepper, chemical cleaner on top of sweet raisiny fruit. Dry on the palate but with a generous dosage, tart acidity and a medium intensity.
No fun on the nose and awkward on the palate. 50€ for this is robbery!
