Comtes de Champagne Rose 2007 is a rich rose color, with touches of violet. The bubbles are extraordinarily fine, rising vigorously in the glass, forming a wonderfully fine necklace of mousse. The nose affirms intense aromas of ripe, sweet fruit, including crystallized strawberries, quince jelly, violet sweets and pears in syrup. There are hints of the cooked fruit aromas of plum tart. The mid-palate confirms the initial aromas of sweet quince jelly, and develops richness with the flavors of fresh figs.
A suitable accompaniment to light cured meats, veal, lamb dishes and ribs as well as fruit salad and berry desserts.
Blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
