Many of us have waited for a new vintage of this favorite wine. When it finally arrived, the Champagne fulfilled all our expectations. The color is very light, with salmon-pink and yellowish hints. The nose is tight and impressive, with layers of toffee, leather, honey, lilies, white chocolate, and exotic fruit. The taste is excellent: naturally sweet, creamy, and possessing a caressing structure. The length is impressive—and underneath all this we know that the acidity is present, keeping the wine alive for a long time to come.

Popped and poured. Medium-plus golden color; hard to tell by color that this is a rose. Aromas and flavors of citrus fruits and yeast. Still quite fresh though just now starting to acquire some secondary aromas and flavors. Not a full-powered rose, actually quite elegant. Very nice!
When poured the first thing I did was grab the bottle to see to confirm that it was in fact a rose. Nearly no pink in the color at all. Very strange to see. But in the mouth definitely a richer, more pinot driven style. Delicious wine but would NOT have called it a rose if I didn't know from the bottle.
