This unique rose (the winery views it as a Blancs de Noirs) is fashioned with a very brief Pinot Noir skin maceration, a technique that yields in a pale "eye of the partridge" color that is reminiscent of the hue of early twentieth century Champagnes. This Vesselle is much more than an historic homage, it is rather it a wonderfully versatile gastronomic Champagne that combines the signature power of Bouzy with the fine elegance of contemporary Champagnes. Quite frothy in the glass with effusive aromas of red berries, mint and white flowers. It's medium-bodied with a nice texture that is balanced with a racy acidity that drives waves of citrus, cherry and red apple flavors which are followed by appealing woodsy and chalk inflections in the finish. We strongly suggest that you compare this long-time staff favorite to any of the Big-Name brut rose Champagnes and see if it doesn't become your new "go to".
