Blue Mountain Brut Rosé R.D. Méthode Traditionelle 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlue Mountain's 2016 Brut Rosé ups the percentage of pinot noir, from 60 percent in 2015 to 67 percent this year, along with 33 percent chardonnay. That is reflected by the nose, which shows lots of expressive pinot fruit: crisp red berries and red apple that's framed by a modest toasty autolytic character from aging 30 months on its lees. Just off-dry with a ten g/L dosage, it's a richer style with a lot of charm and immediate appeal. But it shows its seriousness and incredible value as it evolves each time you return to it.Tasted: 30 October 2020Tasted by: Prices:
