(2021) From Grand Cru Pinot Noir vineyards in Ay, plus 28% Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, this remarkable rosé spent eight years on the lees and is Extra Brut with 4.5g/l dosage. 5212 bottles were disgorged in March 2019. It's a remarkable and serious pink, the nose smoky and mineral, crammed with small, tight red berries and streaking citrus, just a little biscuit character too. There's an immediate sense of concentration, borne out on the palate, which is intense and beautifully fruited, with raspberry and redcurrant, again that smoky, stony mineral base, some natural fruit sweetness gathered up into a sweep of acidity through to the finish.
