Tasting comments :

With its salmon-pink tint, this rosé is blessed with fine, light bubbles. Prominent summer fruit aromas dominate a nose which is refined and expressive. On the palate the attack is fresh and full-bodied, building to an elegant, long finish with echoes of those summer fruit aromas.
