iwinereview"Pale pink. Ripe red berries accented by Cointreau show on the nose of this very dry and crisply textured sparkling rosé. It’s mineral and subtly fruit flavored palate is superbly fresh and alluring despite an astringent touch on the finish. It’s a great sparkler for food. A 60/40 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from 10-15 year old vines in the Robertson area."

i winereview logo"The Brut Rosé opens with vibrant scents of red berries. It’s very nicely balanced with brisk acidity, tangy red berry/pomegranate fruit, and a softly textured palate. Finishes on a crisp, refreshing note. A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from Robertson, handpicked and whole bunch pressed in small lots with yields of 450-480L/ton, then cool fermented using Prise de Mousse yeast followed by full malo; minimum of 24 months on the lees in bottle with hand riddling. - Don WINKLER"

gilbert et gaillard international challenge 2020 gold 90 pts medal"Light pink-orange. Fruity and zesty nose with hints of red berries. Fresh red berries on the palate with a tangy aftertaste and lengthy finish. Clean and fruit-forward with a light and elegant palate. Drink now or keep for a few more years."
