Veuve A. Devaux, Brut Cuvée Rosée Bar-sur-Seine Non Vintage

Devaux Rose NV

Imported by Adventures in Wine, Daly City, CA.

80% Pinot Noir from the Côte de Bar, of which 15% is still PN; 20% Chardonnay from the Côte des Bar, Côte des Blancs, Vitry, Sézanne.  2008 base vintge.  20% reserve wines.  Raised in stainless steel.  Full malo.  Dosage: 9 g/l.

Cerise pink.  The style is markedly attractive: nougat and picnic basket blues.  Porcini and forest floor underneath.  I like the tension of gauzy swell and a finish that threads the needle.  Now.
