Add a splash of colour to your table with this Rosé Champagne. A blend of "Reliance" and "Confiance", roughly 55% pinot meunier, 40% pinot noir and 5% chardonnay; the white and red grapes are expressed by creating a synergy of taste and texture. Made with the spirit of 'Tolerance' in mind, it refers to accepting each other's differences and personal expression. A great introduction to an evening as a couple.
Aged for 7 years on lees before disgorgement in 2019.
"Bright onion skin colour. Heady aromas of ripe red fruits, Asian spices and fresh rose, with a bright mineral quality emerging with aeration. It offers silky raspberry and refreshingly bitter blood orange flavours and enlivening notes of smoky minerals and white pepper. The red berry quality echoes emphatically on the clinging finish. The dosage here is under five grams per litre." 91 points Josh Raynolds for Vinous.com
