A. Margaine Brut Rosé
|Region||France, Champagne, Montagne de Reims|
Subtle notes of dried black cherry and blood orange peel ride the fine, raw silk-like texture of this plush rosé Champagne, layered with sleek acidity and a streak of salinity. Elegant, with rich hints of chopped almond and ground ginger lingering on the finish. Disgorged April 2018. Drink now through 2022.
The NV Brut Rosé is delicate, floral and lifted in style, with pretty citrus and star anise overtones that add a hint of exoticism. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, as it is a touch faded. Chardonnay makes up most of the blend in Margaine's Rosé. Disgorged: October, 2016.
This is a lightly colored rosé, fresh as a red currant while having a tight texture of crisp acidity. It does need some bottle age to bring out the fuller fruit and ripe red berries. Drink this bottling from 2015, while Arnaud Margaine continues to improve the vineyards worked by the family for four generations.
