Champagne Leclerc Briant Rosé Extra Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThe Rosé Brut is labeled NV, but this bottle is from a single harvest (2019), and a blend of 93% chardonnay (from Chouilly and Montgueux), 7% pinot noir (from Les Riceys), native fermented in stainless, with a small amount of the pinot noir fermenting in wood. The cepage rests for two years on lees before being disgorged with 3.5g/L (this lot was disgorged from April 2022). Very red fruited, with pointed cherry, raspberry across a meringue base, shaped with red currant acidity, finishing with an orange twist. The chardonnay backbone is ever present, but the pinot noir has the signature stamp on this wine. This release / disgorge is showing beauty at present, and is a fantastic food wine.Tasted: 13 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
