Vauversin à Oger, Oxalie Grand Cru Brut Rosé Champagne, France
Tasting Note: Grand Cru Rosé Champagne with those wonderful yeasty notes that sometimes don’t carry into rosé sparkling wines.
Medium-intensity salmon in color with tight, small bubbles, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of brioche, strawberry, red cherry, pomegranate, blossom and rosehip.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sparkling rosé has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with additional notes of brioche supported by medium-plus acidity ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
A rosé Champagne to repeat!
Bottle Note: Chardonnay 85%, Pinot Noir 15%. Disgorged: 3/2018. Dosage 9g/L.
