Tasting notes

As 100% Pinot Noir, this rose have a “berry” fruitiness : strawberries, raspberries, a light blackcurrant and currant taste with in aftertaste a beautiful hint of ginger. A light sweetening, witch give a long final. A natural freshness on the nose and the mouth of a young Champagne with a great futur.

A joint venture between Champagne de Sousa and Burgundy’s Olivier Leflaive, this rosé is deliciously bright with red fruit. It has a weighty, vinous character with just an edge of tannin to give it extra richness. Hints of toastiness and fine acidity cut through its fruit core. Drink now.
