Varietal: Champagne Blend Appellation: Reims Region: Champagne Country: France
The Comtes Rosé is made from 100% Grand Cru grapes and produced only in exceptional years. This GORGEOUS Champagne features extraordinarily delicate bubbles and a fresh, highly refined nose with complex aromas of wild strawberries, morello cherries and black currants with hints of fresh almonds and licorice. On the palate, the initial fruitiness quickly intensifies and leads into a rich, structured midpalate and a generous finish that maintains balance and freshness. A sexy, festive rose perfect for a romantic evenings!
"The 2005 Comtes de Champagne Rosè has gained quite a bit of depth and richness since I last tasted it about six months ago. Initially a bit restrained, and times even ethereal, the 2005 seems to be coming out of its shell. Today the flavors are expressive, while the wine's structure is much more evident than it has been in the past. Dark berries, rose petals and a hint of chocolate all leave a lasting impression." AG94
