Gonet-Medeville Extra Brut Premier Cru Rose
Though delicate, pale pink in color, this sparkling rose boasts a rich, textured body with energetic bubbles and vibrant acidity. Pronounced notes of red berries, white flowers, and sweet spice initially unfold, followed by a subtle chalky minerality which carries through on the lively finish. A fine, lacy mousse enfolds the chalky underpinning and firm acidity of this harmonious ros in a creamy swathe of texture, carrying a finely detailed range of ripe white cherry and strawberry fruit, toast point and chopped almond flavors. Hints of pink grapefruit zest and pickled ginger show on the crisp finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Disgorged May 2021. Drink now through 2024. Disgorged in March 2018, the latest release of Gonet-Medeville’s NV Extra Brut Ros Premier Cru opens in the glass with notes of orange rind, sweet red berries and gingerbread. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a textural attack, good depth and dimension at the core, ripe but racy acids and a long, mouthwatering finish.
