The 2002 Brut Rosé is made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes. Eighty percent of the grapes come from the Montagne de Reims area, and the remaining 20 percent are grown in the Marne Valley. The specific style and color is obtained by the addition of 9% of red wine, whose Pinot Noir grapes come from two plots on the Aÿ hillside called "La Côte" and "Meurtet"—both having perfect exposure. After 4 years ageing in our cellars, its aromas have perfectly blended, and the Brut Rosé has a very subtle nose and a palate that shows remarkable power.
The color is a deep salmon pink, with its brightness heightened by fine and lively bead. The nose is fine and expressive, with seductively fruity aromas. The wine shows harmoniously on the palate from the start to the finish, with flavors of raspberries and wild cherries. The texture is rich and silky. It is clearly a vintage with ripe and healthy grapes that have plenty of concentration and style. Its finish shows quite delicious flavors.
This is particularly recommended for drinking with a meal. It would go perfectly with salmon in a mushroom sauce, beef carpaccio, duck with blueberry sauce, lamb cutlets, or a number of young, creamy cheeses such as Chaource or Brillat Savarin.
"Pale salmon hue with a persistent mousse. Inviting scents of raspberry and pear with secondary nuances of ginger and allspice. Sweet, juicy flavors of cider, raspberry and pomegranate. Impressions of vanilla in the creamy close."
The Wine News
"The 2002 Brut Rose is simply beautiful. Well articulated aromas and flavors emerge with notable class as this fresh, vibrant Champagne grows in the glass. Medium in body, the wine possesses outstanding length and a silky, refined finish. The Rose is made with the addition of 8% still Pinot from Ay. This is a terrific effort. "
The Wine Advocate
"Light pink. Suave, understated red berry and mineral scents are impressively precise. Clean, bracing and fresh, with deep but poised redcurrant and raspberry flavors and excellent persistence. I like this elegant style."
International Wine Cellar
"A vinous style, with emphasis on the vibrant structure. The flavors evoke whole-grain toast, ginger and dried berry, with a smooth texture and a chalky sensation on the finish. Drink now through 2010. 280 cases imported."
"100% Pinot Noir. Almost obvious in its cherryish cast to lightly candied, lightly citrusy aromas with surprisingly quietly stated autolysis impressions, this wine is foamy and frothy with fairly big bubbles and a full, juicy flavor profile. It is a very enjoyable quaffer."
Nestled into the slopes of the famous vineyards of Aÿ,
France, are the picturesque stone buildings of Champagne Deutz, founded a
century and a half ago (1838) by William Deutz and Pierre-Hubert Geldermann.
The two immigrants from Napoleonic Prussia - Geldermann, a Champagne salesman,
and Deutz, a negociant - opened an office with no vineyards. The cuvees were

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...Read More About Champagne

one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins -

Pinot Noir or Pinot...Read More About Rosé
