Val de Mer, Crémant de Bourgogne Nature Rosé Non Vintage

Val de Mer Rose NV #1

Val de Mer Rose NVSkin-contact Rosé from 100% Pinot Noir.  Joint venture between winemaker Patrick Piuze from Chablis and Moutard from Champagne.  No dosage.

A pale salmon.  Linear, straightforward nose of boiled sweets, strawberry and Jonathan apple.  Barb says, “watermelon Jolly-Rancher”.  Nervy and dry, with good tension on the back-end.  Of modest body and length.  A welcome touch of minerality.  Hale and winsome, if a bit simple.  In our eyes, its proper Rosé color is probably its best attribute.  These were disgorged March ’12; they should make out just fine through the summer months.  For drinking soon.
