Reviews

  • Guy Larmandier NV Brut Rose, Champagne 1er Cru AOC
    Vinous
    Rating: 92 (11/30/2008)

    The NV Brut Rosé Premier Cru offers an enticing floral life to its notes of mint, roses, pomegranate and sweet spices. This powerful, mineral-driven wine possesses tons of depth and personality in a vinous style that will blossom to the fullest at the dinner table. The Champagne continues to grow in the glass, suggesting it is still holding much of its potential in reserve. This is another compelling wine from Guy Larmandier. The estate's Rosé is based on the Brut Premier Cru blend, plus about 12% still Pinot from Vertus.
