2006“The cuvee Alpha Rosé vintage 2010 is attractively coral pink with deep and luminous orange glints. Its bubbles are of extreme finesse and the effervescence persistent. The nose is seductively fruity with delectable aromas of vine peaches, bitter orange, marzipan, raspberry and crushed strawberry. Airing liberates more floral notes of lime blossom, rose and honeysuckle, intermingled with lemon, star anise, blackcurrant, apricot, grapefruit and brioche lifted by touches of liquorice and cocoa. The pureness of the palate is emphasized by the soft, creamy effervescence. The wine's vinosity gives amplitude, elegance and perÂsistence to the palate, with a mineral signature that is punctuated by saline notes that are perfect for gasÂtronomy. The finish, carried by a luscious tropical fruiÂtiness, reveals the concentration and freshness of blood orange and grapefruit.” Blend 52% Chardonnay (Avize - Vertus) 48% Pinot Noir (Chigny-les-Roses - Mailly - Aÿ) of which 16% is red wine (Vertus) Aeging 6 years maturing on lees.
