Vinous

The 2012 Brut Rosé Emotion is heady, exotic and so alluring. Rose petal, spice, cinnamon, mint, crushed raspberry and white pepper all soar out of the glass. The Emotion is everything a top Rosé should be; aromatic, deep and pure sensuality. Vilmart fans won't want to miss it. The 2012 is a blend of 60% Pinot and 40% Chardonnay. Disgorged: March, 2018.
