Louis Sostene, Brut Rosé 1er Cru ‘Cuvée LSR’ Le-Mesnil-Sur-Oger Non Vintage

Louis Sostene Cuvee LSR Rose NV #1

Encépagement: 80% Chardonnay from le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, 20% ‘addition-method’ still red from Vertus.  Unknown base vintage.  The winemaker is Pierre Gonet from champagne house Philippe Gonet in le Mesnil-Sur-Oger; the vines are his wife’s.   This is Lot#051112.  Current release.

Pale rosé red.  Delicate red berry fruit.  Touches of baking spice, fleur du sel, club-soda effervescence.  Demure without enough structural definition underneath; it risks being tagged as inconsequential.  Certainly worth a try: we don’t see alot of Côte des Blancs pink.  But not as convincing as their Brut.  For drinking soon.
