Tasting Notes by Dawn Davies MW
The vinification techniques for this rosé are a closely guarded secret that have been handed down through seven generations. It is a delicate, pale-pink rosé that has wild strawberry and red cherry aromas.
The palate is a pretty mix of red berries, citrus and strawberry coulis.
This Champagne is the perfect aperitif but also works very well with sushi.

'If you cannot afford or find a bottle of Cristal Rose, this is the next best option. Smooth and light, with that hint of strawberries running all the way to the back of your throat. A Joy rarely found for a lazy day in the summer sun.'
This might not be your desert island wine, but it is mine (assuming my desert island has refrigeration). Is it empirically the best Champagne there is? There is no such thing as empirical or best where wine is concerned: We love what we love, and we tend to have certain emotional responses to certain flavors or smells. This one happens to go to my heart as well as my head. Never-ending, beautiful effervescence, pale coral color with a hint of gold, nuanced nose (alpine strawberry and pear play the leads). Crisp and ethereal, with hints of black cherry, chalk, rose petals and damson plum. Creamy yet light on the finish, focused and direct with a pleasant astringency and pretty much perfect balance. There’s something ineffable about this stuff—it’s fresh and brisk and airy but at the same time substantial. If you could bottle happiness it would probably taste a lot like this.
