This Prestige Cuvée Champagne was COMMENDED at Social Vignerons Prestige Cuvée Champagne AWARDS.
This Non-Vintage Prestige Cuvée Rosé sparkling wine by Cattier is a single vineyard wine blended from 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir from the Clos du Moulin Premier Cru site in the Montagne de Reims area of Champagne.
The tasted bottle was numbered 625 and blended from 2006, 2007, and 2008 vintages.
This rosé comes in a slightly pale delicate salmon pink color, with elegant orange hues.
The nose is savory rather than having the upfront fruity tones we perhaps expected from a pink bubbly. Flinty characters are dominant giving the aromatic profile a strong minerality. Fresh acidic strawberry and fresh lemon notes. A touch of spicy grassiness.
The palate though displays riper fruit characters of ripe raspberry and strawberry, together with luscious sweet orange peel tones. Great balance on the acidity and a dry feel. Fine bubbles, slightly grassy and savory finish with a salivating bitterness.
A connoisseur rosé all about finesse, acidity and refinement meant to be paired with gastronomy and delicate dishes.
Retails around $100 or 80€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
