José Dhondt, Brut Rosé de Saignée Oger Non Vintage

Jose Dhondt Rose NV #1

Rosé by maceration. 100% Pinot Noir from Saudoy in southern Sézannais.  Dosage: 6 g/l.  2014 release.

Candy apple red.  Viscerally extrovert, the fruit has implacable mass, thick and metallic like blood.  He bleeds forcefully, a gelatinous grenadine and confiture concentration, precocious in his evocations of underbrush, veal stock and pencil lead.  Then a beguiling savory length, dry, sweetly herbal, appetizing.  Best in his youth.
