Buy Alfred Gratien Champagne Brut Rose
Colour : light-rose colour with soft copper glints. Sparkle : Fine and extremely long-lasting mousse. Bouquet :The chardonnay aromas mingle subtilely with the fruity bouquet of Pinot Noir. Palate : Fine balance between aromatic strength and the freshness of small red berries dominated by raspberry. Overall impression: A high quality Champagne that completes the Alfred Gratien range. The rose is obtained by the addition of Pinot Noir still wine.
Wine Spectator 91 points - A rich streak of smoky minerality underscores this harmonious rose, with a creamy bead and ripe blackberry and plum fruit, well-spiced and accented by hints of licorice drop, citrus zest and toasted raisin bread. Juicy finish. Drink now through 2018. 750 cases imported.-AN  (Oct 31 2015)

Vinous 92 points - (45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir; 8 g/l dosage; L14198): Light, bright orange. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of pomegranate, raspberry and tangerine, plus a suave note of smoky lees. Bitter rhubarb and cherry skin flavors give way to softer, sweeter raspberry in the mid-palate, with gentle minerality adding spine and lift. Packs a solid punch but comes off surprisingly lithe for its power. Finishes with excellent clarity, a subtle vanilla quality and strong mineral-driven persistence. In the context of top-drawer pink Champagne this bottling always delivers outstanding value. -- Josh Raynolds (Jan 2015)
