The 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage is a rich, weighty wine endowed with considerable richness. The Pinot component is quite prominent in the flavor and textural profile. Far from an easygoing, aperitif rose, the 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage might very well redefine what consumers expect from a big-brand wine. Clean, chalky notes frame the exquisite, vinous finish. This is a fabulous effort from Moet & Chandon. The 2002 Brut Rose Grand Vintage is 51% Pinot Noir (of which 27% is still red wine), 28% Chardonnay and 21% Pinot Meunier. Lot LAFXQAA. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
A smoky, fresh rosé, lightly chalky in texture, showing delicate flavors of crème de cassis, gumdrop, grilled plum and ground spice. Minerally finish. Drink now through 2018.
Vividly pink, like crushed strawberry, this exuberant wine is—as its name suggests—on the dry end of the spectrum. The acidity is dominant, but it is balanced and there are vivid red currant flavors, and a texture of tight fruit skins.
This delightful, ample and generous champagne reveals a subtle, gentle combination of freshness and liveliness. The winemaker chose Piper Heidsieck's emblematic cuvÃ©e as a base and has accentuated softer aromas to endow this wine with a personality all of its own. This is a sumptuous champagne with deeper, stronger undertones. Let yourself be tempted by a deliciously flavoured macaroon, a square of strong dark chocolate or a slice of melt-in-the-mouth cake.
