The second rendition of this astonishing Cuvée from the excellent 2008 vintage has just picked up the Rosé Champagne Trophy (96 points) at the International Wine Challenge Awards 2022 "Coral-pink with subtle rosehip and gentle brioche notes along with creamy bubbles and wild strawberry fruits. Elegant, understated and long on flavour."PRECISELY GRACIOUSAs precise as a Mondrian work, its mineral texture, full of contrasts, faceted like a refined quartz, melds the pronounced delicacy with the exacting expressiveness of the blend.ON THE EYE: PEARL PINK Coppery, almost blue glints merge to give a soft hue of pink quartz. As exquisite as the petals of old roses, elegant bubbles.ON THE NOSE: SPRINGLIKE AND COMPLEX The initial nose offers a bouquet of spring flowers, This fragrant elegance quickly increases in complexity and texture. Notes of tangerine, lychee and verbena alternate with hints of syrupy elderberry, of sweet almonds. Freshly picked dark crisp fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry, lingonberry), the nose is generous, heralding a vintage with exceptional potential.ON THE PALATE: SUBTLE AND MINERAL Following an attack that is both elegant and generous, the velvety texture unfurls to offer minerality and subtlety. Initially, the exuberant vitality of dark fruits and of citrus is followed by the vibrancy, smoky notes and aromas of star anise and violets. Then the triumphant delicacy expresses a hint of vanilla.WEATHER: UNPREDICTABLE After a mild winter, a dreary spring, a significantly cool summer, the ominous and extremely rainy weather became sunny, dry and almost cold, lasting throughout the harvest. FOOD PAIRING Rare Millésime Rosé 2008 is the ideal accompaniment from appetizer to dessert.
