Medium-bodied, intense and sinewy, this has a racy structure propelling its strawberry, black currant and mineral flavors. Lovely balance and harmony, with a lingering, chalky aftertaste. Drink now.

The NV Brut Rose emerges from the glass with the essence of freshly cut flowers, berries and minerals in a mid-weight, gracious style. It shows gorgeous inner perfume, along with persistent notes of chalkiness that frame the long, sublime finish. Year in, year out, this estates NV Brut Rose is one of the most consistently outstanding wines in the region. This is Lot 337014 -3671A. Disgorged June 30, 2010. Anticipated maturity 2011-2015.
Pale, orange-tinged pink. Vibrant, spicy aromas of orange peel, ruby-red grapefruit and floral honey. Focused and pure, with juicy orange and tangy rhubarb flavors and a lush, velvety texture. This is weightier than previous bottlings of this cuvee, but has the usual precision and lift expected by long-time fans of this rose. Finishes with juicy citrus flavors and a late mineral jolt.
