Gaston Chiquet Rose
Luminous pink-orange hue. Fine mousse. Nose of ripe red fruit, black cherry, strawberry. Smooth and fresh palate (Meunier), red fruit, blackberry, cherry, finesse of Chardonnay (one-third), hint of lemon in the finish. The NV Brut Ros is all charm. Crushed berries, flowers, mint and chalk give this NV Ros plenty of energy to match its weightless, gracious personality. Disgorged in July 2019, the latest release of Gaston Chiquet’s NV Brut Ros Premier Cru is showing very well, bursting with aromas of fresh peach, red berries, mint, green apples, rhubarb and pastry cream. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, crisp and fleshy, with a charming core of fruit, racy acids and a lingering, flavorful finish. This is an elegant, inviting Ros based on Pinot Meunier.
