Champagne Varnier-Fannière Brut Rosé Grand Cru
The NV Brut Rose Grand Cru shows fabulous intensity and drive from start to finish. This is a decidedly elegant, focused Rose with an emphasis on minerality. Ideally it needs to be served at the dinner table. Total harmony and classiness are the hallmarks of this beautifully sculpted Rose. I very much like the intensity here. The Rose is 90% Chardonnay, equal parts Cramant, Avize and Oger, and 10% still Pinot from Ay, a fabulous collection of Grand Crus by any measure. The vintages are 40% 2008, 40% 2007 and 20% 2006. This bottle was disgorged May 14, 2011. Dosage is 10 grams.
