EDDIE MCDOUGALL'S TASTING NOTES
This wild strawberry cheesecake of a Champagne Rosé is balanced with firm ruby grapefruit notes and sherbet-like bold acidity that pops. With subtle hints of limey yeast on the nose, this wine has a good structural core with a good finish.
90% Pinot Noir - 10% Chardonnay. Vintages 2012 - 2013. Ageing process: 10 months into large oak casks. No malolactic fermentation
The colour is pink salmon. The effervescence is long-lasting, giving birth to a delicat mousse.
This wine is rich and elegant. On the nose, it develops intense red-fruits aromas (wood-strawberries and wild raspberries). This wine is full in body and well-balanced, very pure and full of interesting nuances
The attack on the palate is lively with red fruit aromas and is quickly underpinned with the freshness of the pink grapefruit. It goes perfectly well with partridge, poultry, poached egg served on a bed of crusty bread and avocado with pink shrimps. This Cuvée Rubis would also be the perfect partner to lobster.
This champagne will enhance its optimum qualities after 1 or 2 years ageing. All the year long, whatever the events, you will appreciate this festive, ample and round champagne.
