Champagne Moutard Rosé Cuvaison Brut NV
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 12.5% – Crisp & Dry, Effervescent
Côte des Bars, Champagne, France
Moutard Brut Rose Cuvaison offers an ample nose with hints of red fruits and forest floor. A full-bodied palate with good persistence and excellent balance.
“The house’s NV Brut Rose de Cuvaison is another standout. Tar, smoke and game are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from the glass, adding considerable complexity and nuance. A short maceration on the skinks gives this 100% Pinot Noir Champagne its volume and breadth. Richness and sophistication meld together beautifully here. This is a standout from Moutard.” 92 Pts – Wine Advocate
“A rosé of pinot noir from the Côte des Bars, this gains its color from a short maceration on the grape skins. The ripeness of the fruit comes through in exotic spices, like Szechuan peppercorns if they could buzz with coolness rather than heat. The red fruit flavor is tight and savory, without even a whisper of sweetness, lasting with gentle, quiet persistence.” 93 Pts – Wine & Spirits
“A tangy version, showing steeped peach and raspberry fruit, with almond and preserved lemon flavors. Floral and spice accents ride the creamy bead and linger on the chalky finish.” 90 Pts – Wine Spectator
