BRUT ROSÉ SPARKLING Traditional method, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer TRIUS
Bright very pale salmon-straw colour. The nose is very attractive, gently complex and very faintly toasty with wild-flower-tinged, fairly intense, Damson plums and freshly-squeezed ripe raspberries. Quite dry, medium bodied and harmonious with slightly spicy, bright, fresh, ripe raspberry purée fruit followed up by a very faintly off dry, lifted, lingering finish. No smoky or yeasty notes here, this offers lovely freshness, ripe fruit and balance. It’s almost too easy to enjoy! This batch was disgorged on June 7, 2021 and seems quite different from the LCBO’s quoted tasting note from Dec. 28, 2020. The residual sugar here is 7 g/L not 4 g/L. The blend in this case is 70% Pinot Noir, 23% Chardonnay, 4% Pinot Meunier and 3% Gamay Noir. It has 7.5 g/L total acidity and with lot number 11580000L5 on the lower part of the glass bottle.

TASTING NOTE: The blend for this rosé brut (only 4 g/l of residual sugar) is Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay (primarily for colour), with 18 months resting on the lees, and shows a pretty light pink hue in the glass. The nose is fresh and inviting with notes of crushed red berries, smoky/yeasty notes, cassis and biscuit. It's lively on the palate with raspberries, strawberries and subtle cassis with bright acidity through the finish that keeps it fresh and popping.
