Description

The 2015 Fesstivity Brut Rose makes an impression with generous aromas of pink grapefruit, raspberry, passion fruit and a hint of orange zest. Bright flavors of citrus/grapefruit, vanilla, raspberry and cranberry are present on the pleasantly tangy palate and the finish lingers with a nice, quenching acidity.

"Elegant and sleekly focused strawberry blossum and spiced cinnamon accents glide agilely along the finish."  ~ Wine Spectator

"Very pale salmon-pink in color, the 2015 Brut Rosé displays notions of dried roses, Bing cherries and raspberry leaves with suggestions of honeyed toast and chalk dust. The red berry-laced palate is finely crafted, with just enough racy acid and finesse to the bubbles to support the delicate flavors, finishing long and perfumed." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"A clean, juicy, impeccably made sparkling wine...It offers classy notes of orange blossom and strawberries, with medium-bodied richness, a fine, elegant mousse and a great finish." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2015 Brut Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir, with a dollop of still Pinot blended in for color. Brisk and nuanced, with good depth, the Rosé shows quite a bit of finesse and terrific balance. The four grams of dosage feels a bit sweet, but part of that may be the natural richness of the vintage." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
