Champagne R. Pouillon & Fils Premier Cru Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThis rosé de maceration is entirely pinot noir from 1er cru Mareuil sur Aÿ, and is based in 2017 with 20% from 2016. After 12 hours of maceration, was fermented in wood, with 2 years on lees before disgorge in early 2020 with 7 g/L. The time on skins has lent a deep hue and deep pinosity, with fleshy dark cherry, red apple, candied mandarin, raspberry brioche across a creamy palate. There's a welcome brace of acidity which holds this aloft, though the dosage sticks out on the finish. Quite rustic, this has the stuffing and intensity to stand up to roast lamb or Peking duck.
