The Brut Rose is made in the same rigorous spirit that characterizes the house style, while expressing all of the typicality of Alfred Gratien. This wine is born of a refined blending, which combines the elegant delicacy of Chardonnay and the fruity notes of Pinot Meunier. In the glass the robe is a pale pink, with copper highlights and a fine and persistent fizz. This champagne presents lovely aromas of Chardonnay that join with the subtlety of the fruity bouquet of Pinot Meunier. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel, the Brut Rosé from Alfred Gratien is a champagne of great quality and refinement. Long and tasty on the finish.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The NV Brut Rose Classic bursts from the glass with gorgeous energy. Sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers and spices are some of the many notes that burst from the glass. The Rose Classic is endowed with serious depth and classiness. It is easily one of the very best wines in its peer group. The blend of predominantly red grapes but with a healthy dose of Chardonnay works beautifully. Subtle, perfumed and beautiful, the NV Brut Rose Classic is fabulous. The 1999 is 42% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, and 22% Pinot Meunier. Disgorgement date: June 18, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
