SPARKLING ROSÉ Traditional method, California
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHANDON
One of 52 items (49% of 106 releases) not presented for evaluation under new LCBO policies. This REPEAT last appeared in Vintages (***) on December 7, 2019 at $34.95 and was Recommended. Here is my previous note: Bright medium day-glo salmon pink colour. Attractive, faintly honeyed, spicy, ripe melon-plum-apple puree nose. Quite dry, medium-light bodied, slightly honeyed, effervescent, slightly spicy, bright, ripe lemon citrus and plum-strawberry-apple purée flavours with a lingering, crisp, very faintly toasty finish. Ready-to-drink. This blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir spends 12 months on the lees and has 12% alcohol and now 11 g/L residual sugar with lot number 2019140617 on the lower part of the glass bottle. CSPC 405555
