2016 Fesstivity Brut Rosé
"Aromas of crisp lemon peel, pluot and watermelon show on the inviting nose of this sparkling wine. The flavors are quite focused on the palate, with lemon peel and grapefruit rind pushing into the sharp, precise finish." ~ Wine Enthusiast
"...Pliant and generous on the palate, with striking depth, the Rosé is absolutely delicious." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"Made from 100% Pinot Noir, the 2016 Brut Rosé offers beautiful notes of ripe strawberries, toasted spices, and brioche that turns just slightly more floral with time in the glass. Rich, medium-bodied, nicely balanced, and with considerable elegance in its mousse, it's another rock-solid, even outstanding effort. The Brut rose saw the same élevage as the Blanc de Noir, with 10 grams of dosage." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
Generous passion fruit, raspberry and a hint of orange zest won't be missed on the nose. Persistent bubbles dance in the flute, while bright tangy flavors of cranberry, raspberry, grapefruit are mellowed by a touch of vanilla on a pleasant palate that finishes with a clean, quenching acidity.
