Champagne Besserat de Bellefon Cuvée des Moines Brut Rosé NV
The colour is pink with salmon glints. Fine, light bubbles form a creamy ring of froth.
The nose is generous, sophisticated and intense and strongly marked by summer berry fruits (wild strawberries).It evokes an impression of jelly, redcurrant and almond. Notes of linden and hawthorn.
The attack is tangy, with good volume in the mouth. There are again notes of summer berry fruits (blackberry and black currants). The finish is generous and delicately spicy.
2.5 years on lees.
Aperitif, white meats, duck. Also works well with red fruit based desserts.
