Robert Parker – 93
This bottle of the 2005 Brut Rose was disgorged in 2017 with ten grams per liter dosage. It’s a lovely wine that offers up complex notes of red apple, mandarin, white cherries, brioche and nutmeg. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with a fleshy core of fruit, brisk acids, a refined mousse and lovely chalky grip on the finish. This is a serious, vinous rose that numbers among the challenging 2005 vintage’s successes.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030
