This gleaming and vibrant pink Champagne illuminates The Kings Path. Chemin du Roi Rosé is made from grapes grown in some of the finest vineyards in Champagne. Aged for over 4 years on it's lees to create a crisp and smooth Champagne, notes of strawberries, and black currants shine on the palate.
At first the nose reveals the sweet, gentle notes of chestnut, coconut and fresh bread. This biscuity side to the wine very quickly gives way to the aromas of flowers (iris, lily-of-the valley and the flowers of Seville orange trees) and citrus fruits (bergamot and citron). Just beneath the surface several mineral (wet rock and flint) and iodised saline notes make an appearance. On the palate this vintage is initially direct but silky, sustained by mineral notes. The ephemeral nature of the Dom Ruinart is then revealed through citrus fruit freshness with touches of gentian. The very long finish is characterized by grapefruit and kumquat zest notes with just the slightest hints of salinity.
The color is an elegant golden straw yellow with amber highlights. Its aromas reveal an exotic fruitiness yellow peach, plum, pineapple and honey with floral nuances (lime blossom) and elegant blond notes (brioche and fresh nuts). The palate is seductive and generous, combining intensity with roundness, fullness with suppleness, followed by a lively crisp finish to reveal the magical balance of champagne.
Intense, fruity and aromatic, Ruinart Rosé owes its sensual elegance to the marriage of Chardonnay (45%), mainly from the Chardonnay Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne, made into red wine. The nose is fresh and subtle, ripe with cherry and freshly picked red berries, followed by a splash of flowers and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is silky and delicately fleshy.
At first sight, a subtle yellow gold color highlighting a reserved finesse. On the nose: there are notes of citrus, plum, liquid honey and brioche. On the palate: fresh summer fruits, surprising red grapefruit along with candied peel, roast chestnut and caramelized apple tart.
Creamy, with caramel tones in the flavor spectrum, along with apricot, grapefruit and a touch of mineral. The mousse is assertive, helped along by a chalky feel on the finish.
A commitment to creation. Its a quest for excellence, about taking risks. A style of tensionand emotion. Champagne is radiant, pure, and vibrant. It is a story of seduction and sensuality.
Dom Perignon is a refined version of rose; finely bubbled with wisps of chalk and cherries; notes of creamy yeast and engaging minerality; brilliantly crafted wine.
Golden yellow to the eye with tinges of jade green. The sparkle is gentle, elegant and sustained. On the nose there are citrus hints and rich fruit aromas of white peach and apricot. These lengthen into notes of vanilla, dried fruits and honey. On the palate, the complex fusion of fresh fruit and caramel point to the wines inherent quality. Gentle acidity, sparkle thats ample but not overbearing and an unusually long-lasting taste are the hallmarks of a balanced finish, consistent and multi-faceted.
A wonderful combination of serenity and generosity. Notes of black currant and coffee lead to a vigorous, slightly aniseed and deliciously astringent finish. From an extraordinary year and an incomparable fruit, Moet & Chandon has created an ambitious, confident champagne. A wine that happily asserts its elegant structure, its spectacular solidity, and its sunny personality.
The Grand Vintage is an extraordinary wine, offering from the very first encounter, all round pleasure that is completely seductive. This vintage is splendidly free, tremendously assertive, distinguished yet delightfully spirited and mischievous.
Rosé Reserve has an attractive pinky-orange color with deep copper accents. Effervescence is lively and long-lasting. The nose is very expressive, with initial aromas of red and yellow fruit (wild strawberries, blueberries, peaches on the vine, pears) leading to warmer notes of figs and brioche. The attack is attractive and clear, with a good deal of strength and body in the background.The wine is superbly balanced between concentrated fruitiness and elegant freshness. Redfruit notes fill the palate and the Bouzy red wine plays its role to perfection. The wine has a satiny texture, and is solidly built and yet delicate at the same time. The finish is deliciously long, ending in silky, velvety tannins. The strength and generosity of Rosé Reserve makes it the ideal accompaniment to an entire meal. Although Rosé Reserve is currently enjoyable and very inviting, it would benefit from a long period of cellaring, developing more mature notes of undergrowth, toast, ripe fruit, and mild spices.
