Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2006 has a deep pink colour. The extremely fine bubbles rise in a lively style to form a superb ring of delicate foam. Initially, the nose offers intense aromas of citrus fruit, especially blood oranges.
Then more mature aromas develop, with candied red and black fruits, quince paste
and blackcurrant liqueur. On the palate, the attack is concentrated with a very intense
cherries-in-syrup fruitiness. The mid-palate is rich, vinous and very structured. The finish is
expressive with volume, complexity and good length. Still young but already showing great
class, Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2006 is characterized by a mature, generous style. Its
rich, varied aromatic structure suggests an excellent capacity to age.
Varietal: Blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay
Pairing: Wine for celebrations and ceremonial occasions, the profile of this champagne is such that it can be enjoyed at any time; in the context of a meal, it would go well with pigeon or lamb
(cooked pink) or with a dessert such as baked pears or a red fruit gratin.
