92pts 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.

92pts James Suckling

A lovely, flavorful rosé with sliced peaches and strawberries. Medium to full body. Very bright and flavorful. Fine bubbles. Delicious finish. Clear and vivid. Drink now.

91pts Decanter

An impressive array of citrus, apple, savoury mushroom, delicate berries, complex dough and toasted nuts. Beautifully long finish with a lovely fine mousse.

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Blended of about two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay with a splash of Pinot Meurnier, the NV Brut Rose sports a very pale salmon-pink color, delivering notes of wild strawberries, McIntosh apples and raspberry leaves with a hint of chalk dust. The palate offers seriously zippy red berries and apple flavors with an impressively fine mousse and well-balanced finish. 15,000 were cases made.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

Nutty and substantial in texture, this pink sparkler is abundant in white peach, flowers and green apple. It's sharp and focused, with rich undertones of cherry and rose. The developed mouthfeel is balanced by dry, stony acidity.

 

Winemaker Notes

This J Brut Rosé sparkles with a luminous cool pink hue and exudes delicate aromas of strawberry, nectarine and juicy red apples. On the palate, the wine opens with flavors of cherry, blood orange, citrus peel and the tropical star fruit that are underlined by a bright acidity that keeps the overall impression delightfully fresh with a lively, lingering finish. The wine engages the entire palate with balance wrapped in a refined body of elegance and effervescence. Blend: 61% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, 4% Pinot Meunier
