This is a fruity, fragrant wine with light fruitiness and deliciously crisp acidity. Red berry flavors are lined with red apple acidity and a texture that shows a touch of minerality from the Grand Cru vineyards on the Montagne de Reims. Unusually for a rosé Champagne, this is made principally from Pinot Noir, with color coming from the skins rather than from adding red wine to the blend.
