(Net Item - no discounts apply)

The luminous pink of this rose hints at the delicate berry aromas within, but you’ll also find an impressively complex bouquet of savory mushrooms, baked pear, and herbal nuance. Compiled from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this hits all the high points we expect in a Blanc de Noir but adds its own rosy twist with elegance and effervescence. Delightfully fresh and lingering, it’s one we’re sure to seek out again.

Connoisseurs' Guide

Finding a place at the lighter end of the Rosé spectrum and, in fact, a wine that could easily pass for a Blanc de Noirs, this lightly yeasty version fixes on energetic, slightly juicy, young fruit as its main motif. It is briskly balanced, but its ample acidity enlivens without ever once seeming sharp, and it is wholly free of the astringency that marks its more vinous mates.
