PHILIPPONNAT BRUT RESERVE ROSEE

WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS - "A delicious rosť. Intense dried berry and cherry aromas and flavors with accents of dried flowers and mineral melding nicely with the rich texture and solid structure. Appealing. Good lingering finish too. Drink now through 2011."

We have been fans of Philipponnatís rosťs for a long time but its cost from the previous importer would have forced us to sell it for a too-pricy sixty dollars. Thanks to a little give and take in the supply chain, its shelf price has fallen to a more than fair forty dollars. We can now give this jewel our highest recommendation. This rosť blend is based on Aˇ region Pinot Noir augmented with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier and topped off with 7-8% still Pinot Noir from the firmís famed Clos des Goisses vineyard. Pale salmon-pink in color, this Brut has a fine, active mousse that releases pleasing aromatics of black currants, poached strawberries, carob and brown spices. In the mouth one canít help but be impressed with the way this rosť swirls a skein of tangy red berry fruits and creamy autolytic flavors around its flinty core. Its mouth-watering acidity and Pinot Noir character make this rosť a most valued companion at any holiday table.
