The NV (2008) Brut Rose impresses for its depth and round, sensual personality. Layers of fruit caress the palate in this deep, resonant Rose. This is a fairly straightforward wine for Chartogne-Taillet, but it is impossible not to love the pure vinosity and purity of the fruit. The Rose is 60% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 15% still Pinot. Disgorgement date: August 2012 Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
Pretty sunset pink color, with a soft, strawberry Champagne. It is dry, but the dryness is less important than fruitiness, with citrus and caramel flavors.
