Champagne Dosnon Récolte Rosé NV
The base wine for the Recolte Rose starts as a Blanc de Noirs of Pinot Noir with an addition of Pinot Meunier giving it its salmon-pink hue. Pinot Meunier is not as common in the Cote des Bar as Pinot Noir but winemaker Davy Dosnon feels that its bring a lovely spice and fruit to his Rose. With the base wine fermented and aged in used Puligny-Montrachet barrels and a minimum of 2 years aging in bottle with a dosage of 7g/L it bears all the hallmarks of the Donson style – pure, focused, intensely mineral but with a clear, spicy, red-fruit and orange peel lift to the flavors.

World Wine – Light, bright orange. Redcurrant, orange zest, jasmine and a hint of dusty minerals on the seductively perfumed nose. Juicy, vibrant and taut, offering powerful, spice- and mineral-accented flavours of red berries and candied orange peel. Silky and expansive on a finish resounding with orange and mineral notes. 93 Points – Josh Raynolds, vinous.com
