Jean Josselin, Brut Rosé Audace Aube

DJK Imports, South San Francisco CA.

All Pinot Noir from 11.7 h/a estate vineyards in Gyé-Sur-Seine.  Skin-contact Rosé.  Base vintage 2012.  100% malo.  Dosage: 7.15 g/l.   Disgorged: November 2015.  This bottle is from Lot No. 1115.

Candy apple red.  Mara des bois and then a lensing glimpse into the deep well of the Aube.  Vanilla flowers, anise and forest floor and the tension here lies in a creamy texture that only appears yielding but is actually spicy and frisky.  Now – 2022.
