La Grande Année Rosé 2012
La Grande Année Rosé is a unique blend of a great vintage Champagne and a red wine from a unique plot, the legendary Côte aux Enfants. The 2012 is a blend of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay, from a total of 21 crus. A delicate rose color on the eye, the nose is greeted by aromas of redcurrant and black fruits that are accompanied by lovely hints of citrus. On the palate, there is a great deal of delicacy. The fruity, spicy, and oral notes on the palate open up to flavors of citrus zest, peach and strawberry. The fresh, mineral palate is complemented by a creamy effervescence and fresh structure, with a racy, saline finish.
