  • NV H. Billiot Fils Champagne Grand Cru Brut Rosé – France, Champagne, Champagne Grand Cru (11/17/2019)
    WIML92

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 3 hours.

    Dark red rose color in the glass, clear looking throughout with tiny moderate beading. Nose of strawberries, rhubarb, red raspberries and a hint of ocean breeze. Flavors of strawberries, red raspberries and a hint of citrus zest on the finish. Bright acidity, full bodied. Drink over the short to medium term. My bottles hit the market approximately 9 years ago so I say drink now on those. (92 points)
