The current release of Lamiable's non-vintage Brut Rosé is a blend of sixty percent pinot noir and forty percent chardonnay and was finished off with a dosage of eight grams per liter. The wine is quite a deep cherry red, indicating a fairly large percentage of still pinot noir in the blend, but I could not find technical details for the precise percentages. The bouquet wafts from the glass in mix of blood orange, strawberries, wheat toast, chalky soil tones and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a good core, slightly coarse bubbles, bright acids and good length and grip on the fairly well-balanced finish. This seems a tad younger than the non-vintage Brut bottling and is not quite as refined as a result. 2016-2025.
Wine SpectatorThis aperitif-style rosé Champagne is appealing for the crowd-pleasing mix of ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, aromatic ground spice, lightly toasted brioche and blood orange granita notes. Not a powerhouse, but fresh, balanced and very drinkable. Drink now. 500 cases imported.
