RMS BRUT SPARKLING 2015 Traditional method, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer ROCO
NEW in Vintages. This premium Oregon traditional method sparkler by Rollin Michael Soles “RMS” carries a hefty price tag and delivers lots of flavour and style for the money. It has a bright pale straw colour and an intense, fairly ripe, apple-lemon purée nose with lots of toasty, brioche notes. It is dry, medium-full bodied and well structured with some maturing, slightly baked, intense, lemon-apple meringue flavours and a lingering, fairly dense, complex, bright, faintly salty, mineral-tinged finish. This blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay has 12.5% alcohol and 10 g/L residual sugar with lot number L060919 on the back label tag suggesting that it had 3.5 yars on the lees. Given its rich hefty mouhfeel, it’s would be a great match for a lobster bisque,

TASTING NOTE: The 2015 ROCO 'RMS' is a sterling blend of 70% Pinot Noir with the remainder Chardonnay. This beautiful wine saw some extended bottle aging before disgorgement. Coming from this warm vintage in the Willamette Valley, the wine shows a bright bouquet of baked apple, kumquat and sourdough bread that all line the slightly saline laced nose. The palate shows really good range and complexity which makes it simply irresistible in its youth. The bright acidity and saline edge combine with gorgeous citrus zest and Japanese pear flavors that all mingle once in the mouth. Another stunning success, this beautiful wine has a long journey left in the cellar. Drink date: 2019-2035. Score - 94 (internationalwinereport.com, April 2019) Price $ 79.95
