CG 91 WE 91 WS 90 Pts - According to Connoisseurs Guide - "Much in the manner of its similarly affable Cuvée 20 cellar mate, this very vital version of sparkling Rosé is led first by buoyant young fruit with a bit of quiet, but very persistent, creamy yeast in support. It impresses as being fairly rich at one moment and light on its feet at the next, and, like its mate, it finishes with a fine acid lift. It will make lovely drinking with any number of moderately rich salmon, chicken or duck dishes, yet its lack of any late-arriving astringency means that it is a Rosé that can be joyfully quaffed all by itself."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Pretty dark in color and full-bodied for a sparkling wine, even one that’s majority Pinot Noir. But it’s delicious and dry, which surely are prime requisites for any bubbly. Shows ripe, flashy raspberry, strawberry, orange, vanilla, honey, yeast, and toast flavors, and the mouthfeel is silky and refined."
"Wonderful richness, complexity and depth, built around a core of spicy black cherry and Pinot Noir fruit. A pleasant earthy hazelnut flavor adds intrigue and the texture is smooth and polished, ending with a creamy mouthfeel. This J Brut Rose 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." A blend of 69% Pinot Noir, 29% Chardonnay, 2% Pinot Meunier. 12.5% ABV.
