Lacourte-Godbillon Rosé Champagne Extra Brut 1er Cru
It is always a good sign when a rosé champagne states its identity in a distinctively different way from its white counterparts, as this does. The generosity of 2018 (73% of the blend – the rest is 2015) serves it well. Even with just 4 gm. of dosage, the wine has an exquisite balance between fruit and earth. Borderline perfect pink champagne.

Producer Notes Rosé d’assemblage: we add 8% or red wine vinified in barrels
Wine Spectator – “Violet and wild cherry notes waft through this aromatic rosé , mixing with strawberry, pastry dough, lemon meringue and almond accents on the finely detailed bead. Mouthwatering and accessible. ” (91 Pts)
Wine Enthusiast – “With a small amount fermented in wood, this Champagne has richness, spice and a touch of maturity to open the flavors. A ripe wine with hints of strawberry, it is ready to drink.” (91 Pts)
