Blue Mountain Brut Rosé R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOnce again a prestigious sparkling rosé, with presence. This is 65/35 pinot noir/chardonnay, whole cluster pressed and stainless fermented before blending and three years on the lees before another year in bottle prior to release. This was disgorged in August 2016. On the off-dry side, with roses, raspberry, rhubarb, and cherry complemented by a noticeable bump in dosage and viewed through a haze of light smoke. Acidity remains vibrant and driving through the lengthy finish. This is a serious rosé for food, and can easily stand up to duck, pork, or roasted yam dishes.Tasted: 01 December 2017Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices:
