Champagne Saint Reol Brut Rose d’Ambonnay Champagne Grand Cru NV
11 Oct 2022
d’Ambonnay is a very well-known Grand Cru village in champagne, there are many well-known champagne houses from d’Ambonnay, e.g. Krug, Duval Leroy, Mumm, Piper Heidsieck, Pol Roger, Roederer … etc. Saint-Reol is a cooperative by polling 58 champagne producers with excellent champagne making skills to make their champagnes, thus quality is assured. The rose is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, color is pinkish yet lighter than most Rose. Bouquet possessed a very light and soft blend of strawberries and cherries. Content wise, similar to the nose, a very shy blend of strawberries and cherries. I must confess this rose is not a love at first sip type, it’s not a champagne for party that tries hard to attract people to drink, rather, it’s a connoisseur champagne to be slowly appreciated; It has to be appreciated and evaluated over the sipping of the whole bottle, the length is stunning and only revealed itself at later stage, the fruit is soft and shy, very connoisseur champagne, cheers!
