91 pts - John Gilman, A View from the Cellar
Grapes: Pinot Noir with 10-15% Chardonnay
High Environmental Value (HVE) Certified
Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (VDC) Certified
Tasting Notes: Very bright ruby color. Aromas of smoky blood orange, rose petals and raspberries. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a pinpoint mousse, ripe acids and a deep, fleshy core of fruit.
Saignée method rosé. Powerfully and deliciously marked by Pinot Noir, this is a rosé Champagne made unapologetically for the table. It spends 18 months on the lees before disgorgement, the shortest length of time chez Barnaut in order to keep freshness at the forefront. The dosage averages 6 g/l with a yearly production of 1,250 cases.
