"Only 10 cases of this great 19 year old rose have been imported to the USA. This Champagne is 100% Pinot Noir that was made using full skin contact (saignee) to achieve the salmon and copper color. The grapes all came from estate vineyards in the very warm, south facing Premier Cru of Cumieres. Aromaticly, this wine has strawberries and marischino cherries on its straightforward, pure and generous nose. This is a deliscious bottle of rose, that has hardly aged at all over its 19 years! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)"

4 stars "wonderful copper color with a nose of cherry liqueur. On the palate, yeasty and smoky with an intriguing port-like finish. "
