Champagne Collet Brut Rose
|Availability:||In stock (5)|
This assemblage has its origin in 20 Crus from the Premiers and Grands Crus of the Champagne region. It is completed with 20% reserve wines. 50% Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages of Aÿ, Hautvillers, Avenay-Vald’Or or Louvois, to produce a light, tender and fruity wine. 40% Chardonnay predominantly from the Premier Cru of Vertus contributes freshness and lemony notes. The mineral dimension and aromas of fl int come from the Cru of Villers- Marmery, which has a limestone soil. Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages such as Chouilly, Avize, Oger and Vaudemange, complete the assemblage with force and complexity. 10% Meunier provides roundness and suppleness. This assemblage Brut Rosé has 16% Pinot Noir, from Mailly-Champagne, well known for its aromatic power and its richness, and from Vertus, vinified as red wine. This red nectar allows fruity, warm and luscious aromas to develop.
"Orangey pink and quite frothy at first. Relatively deeply coloured for rosé champagne. Very fruity aroma – red fruits and orange plums. Lots of fruit in the mouth too, and that wealth of fruit plus the residual sugar gives a fullness in the mouth but also a slight tooth-coating effect. Packed with flavour and pretty good length. Quite a chewy, textural finish. Maybe more of a food wine (but not rich enough for desserts) than an aperitif." Jancis Robinson | Decanter Magazine
