  4. PHILIPPONNAT BRUT RESERVE ROYALE ROSE

    Item #: i_352690
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 91
    JOSH RAYNOLDS 92 POINTS-"75% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier; 9 g/l dosage; disgorged in March, 2014): Pale orange. Fresh red berries, tangerine, sweet butter and candied rose on the highly perfumed nose. Silky and expansive, offering juicy red berry and floral pastille flavors supported by an undercurrent of chalky minerals. Sappy and sharply focused on the minerally, floral finish, which hangs on with excellent tenacity."-Jan 2015

    JOHN GILMAN 92 POINTS-"I really like Philipponnat’s Rosés these days, and their current release of Réserve Rosée is excellent. The wine is made of a blend of seventy-five percent pinot noir, twenty percent chardonnay and five percent pinot meunier, with seven percent of the pinot noir being still red wine to give the bottle its delicate salmon color. The dosage this year was nine grams per liter. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a young and vibrant mix of melon, orange peel, chalky minerality, bread dough and a nice touch of spices in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp and still youthfully snappy, with a full-bodied and nascently complex personality that reveals a good core, elegant mousse and fine length and grip on the seamless finish. I would try to give this wine another year in the cellar to really let it blossom from behind its girdle of acidity, but the acids are so well-integrated into the body of the wine that it is certainly approachable today."

    We have been fans of Philipponnat’s rosés 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 rosé blend is based on Aÿ region Pinot Noir augmented with Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier and topped off with 7-8% still Pinot Noir from the firm’s 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 can’t help but be impressed with the way this rosé 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 rosé a most valued companion at any holiday table.

  7. PIPER-HEIDSIECK ROSE SAUVAGE

    Item #: i_376334
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 93
    JOHN GILMAN 91 POINTS-"The new release of Piper-Heidsieck’s "Rosé Sauvage", which typically includes around a quarter of still pinot noir in the blend, is once again excellent. The color here is quite dark for a rosé Champagne- fairly deep cherry red- and the wine has plenty of vinosity in evidence on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is a deep and complex blend of cherries, orange peel, a bit of spiced meat, lovely soil tones, woodsmoke, cloves and rye toast. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a rock solid core, zesty acidity, laser-like focus, superb mousse and excellent length and grip on the vibrant and very well-balanced finish. This cuvée seems to get a bit better every year! Lovely wine."

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "There's lovely texture and integration to this vinous rosé, which displays nut-tinged flavors of grilled plum, black cherry preserves, cream, toasted brioche and sweet smoke. Long and mouthwatering, with a lingering, spice-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases imported."

  9. PLOYEZ-JACQUEMART EXTRA BRUT ROSE

    Item #: i_353780
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 91
    JOHN GILMAN 92+ POINTS - "The new release of Ployez-Jacquemart Extra Brut non-vintage Rosé was disgorged in November of 2017 and is from the base year of 2014. The cépages is this cuvée’s customary fifty percent Chardonnay, thirty-seven percent Pinot Noir and thirteen percent Pinot Meunier, with ten percent of the Pinot Noir still red wine. The new version offers beautifully purity on the nose, wafting from the glass in a lovely mix of strawberries, a touch of tangerine, complex, chalky minerality, bread dough and a touch of rose petal in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with lovely transparency, refined mousse, zesty acids and excellent focus, length and grip on the elegant and complex finish. This is more accessible out of the blocks than the base year 2013 version was at this point in its evolution last year, but I have the sense this will age just as long and gracefully. Just lovely Rosé."

  12. RUINART BRUT ROSE

    Item #: i_359661
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Spectator: 93
    JOSH RAYNOLDS 92 POINTS - "(55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; LAH9V): Light orange. Sharply focused red berry and tangerine scents are complicated by suggestions of allspice and cinnamon, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Sappy and minerally on the palate, offering fresh strawberry and blood orange flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Packs a serious punch but carries no excess weight and finishes stony and very long, with echoing red berry character."-Jan 2015

    WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - "There's lovely precision to the integration of this elegant rosé, offering a fine backbone of acidity and a light mousse. The flavors of poached pear, black cherry, fleur de sel, lemon zest and ginger are finely meshed, with a subtle vein of smoky minerality. Drink now through 2023. 2,250 cases imported."

  13. SAINT PIERRE 2018 COTE DE PROVENCE ROSE

    Item #: i_334289
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Château Saint Pierre dates back to the eleventh century. Recent rehabilitation work in the cellar have revealed vestiges of a church dedicated to Saint Pierre that had belonged to Foulques, Lord Of Les Arcs.

Handed down from father to son for the past four generations, Jean-Philippe Victor now manage this 55 hectares vineyards that stretch from the Argens River up to the foot of the Maures Mountains.

    The nose is a rich blend of well water minerality, red plum skin, peach and strawberry notes. The palate is lush and creamy with forward tropical fruits, stone fruits, sweet peach cobbler and ripe cherry, balanced by excellent acidity and a dose of minerality. The finish allows the fruit back to the forefront as it slowly fades, like a glorious sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Benchmark wine.

    Veuve Clicquot Rosé ensures the consistency of the House style: an intense and elegant champagne with a delightfully luscious, fruit-based charm.

    JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS-"The non-vintage edition of Veuve's rosé Champagne has a bright-strawberry and raspberry-fruit thread on the nose with a gently spicy edge too. The palate's big on flavor and really exuberant thanks to expressive strawberry and hints of pink grapefruit. Drink now whilst it is on the fruit. (12/16)."

    With a beautiful translucent pink hue, VieVité exudes the colors of a true Côtes de Provence rosé wine.

  17. VILMART BRUT ROSE RUBIS

    Item #: i_376189
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    JOHN GILMAN 91+ POINTS - "The current release of Vilmart Cie’s Cuvée Rubis is comprised of ninety percent Pinot Noir and ten percent Chardonnay and was done as a saignée, rather than adding a bit of still Pinot Noir to create the rosé color. The wine is quite fine, as its oak component is very nicely understated and plays a fine supporting role to the main fireworks on the nose and palate. The bouquet is a mix of cherries, red currants, cloves, lovely soil tones, rye toast and a bit of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, elegant mousse, fine focus and grip and a long, slightly tannic finish. The balance here is just fine and I do not see any issues down the road with the touch of wood tannins, but exclusively older wood is not something that would be a detriment to this bottling. This is a very well-made wine, but I am more attracterd to the organic natural beauty of Alexandre Chartogne’s style of Rosé over the Cuvée Rubis, even if the two wines are not all that far apart in quality."

    From one of Champagne’s true cult producers, Vilmart’s Rubis Rosé is simply a joyous Champagne that will appeal as much to the novice as it will to the die-hard Champagne geek. It is a vinous blend of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay from the domaine’s vineyards in the Montagne de Reims village of Rilly-la-Montagne and Villes- Allerand. Proprietor Laurent Champs always avoids malolactic fermentation in order to retain structure and finesse. To add a bit of roundness and spice, Laurent “raised” the base wines for this rose in large oak foudres for ten months before bottling. Champagne critic Peter Leim of The Champagne Guide paints the finished picture well: “It’s creamy and luscious, displaying pungent flavors of rhubarb, strawberry and cranberry along with underlying hints of sweet herbs and peppery spice. Drinking superbly well now, it combines a serious, vinous character with sheer delicious slurpability.” Note that our low Special Purchase Price is limited to stock on hand.
