Champagne Huré Frères Insouciance Rosé Extra Brut NV

Montagne de Reims, Champagne, FranceChampagne Huré Fréres began just over 50 years ago, and remains very much a family business. Today Raoul Huré and his two sons, Francois and Pierre oversee their the estate from their Ludes' home base. This deeply coloured rosé blends 35 % Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, based on 2019, and disgorged in June 2022 with 4.5 g/L. The red fruit is from old vines in the 1er Cru village of Ludes. A very pure, lightly candied and generous core of perfumed strawberry and light toast is wrapped with blood orange pith and peel, and bright with a cranberry freshness that carries this through the finish. Hefty enough for food, but lovely solo sipping also.Tasted: 13 May 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
