Paul Berthelot, Brut Rosé Dizy Non Vintage

Berthelot Rose NV

75% Pinot Noir (15% still PN); 25% Chardonnay.  2008 base vintage.  Aged at least three years in Berthelot cellars.  Unknown disgorgement date and dosage; current release.

Cerise pink.  Chiseled, buttoned-up nose with a minimalist streak: rather sleek and stoic red fruit, oleander, aniseed, talc.  A smoldering minerality.  At once poised and substantial, savory-cool and scrupulous in the mouth: red currant-y, with a rhubarb and huckleberry tartness.  Not desperately long but this Rosé is nourishing and intricate.  Now – 2016.
