Pierre Gerbais, Brut Rosé Aube

55% PN (including 10% Coteaux Champenois), 23% PB and 22% CH from estate vineyeards in Celles-sur-Ource in the Cote-des-Bar. The ground here is a mix of marl, limestone and kimmeridgian bedrock. Certified sustainable (Ampelos) since 1996. Raised in steel. 30 months sur lattes. Dosage: 6 g/l.

Salmon pink. At once sappy and pixelated, where the flavors run to morning dew, copper, yarrow, physalis, and blood orange. More piano than the Brut Réserve, with a oyster-y inner thickness. Now.
