From the Critics:
- "(55% pinot noir, 30% pinot meunier and 15% chardonnay; Lot 122417 3692): Bright orange-pink. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of cherry and black raspberry, with a subtle mineral quality adding lift. Juicy, intensely concentrated red fruit flavors become spicier with air. A refreshingly bitter blood orange element stays on the long, incisive finish." (12/12) -
- "I have consistently enjoyed the unique style of the Rosé Sauvage in the last few years from Piper-Heidsieck, as the very high percentage of still red wine added to the blend makes for a fine partner at the table. The current release is characteristically bright cherry in color and offers up a fine bouquet of black cherries, rye toast, blood orange, a touch of cinnamon stick, smoky nuances and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very 'winey' in style, with crisp acids, excellent mousse and fine focus and grip on the long and perfectly balanced finish. This is probably too rich for sipping as an aperitif, with fully twenty- five percent still wine in the blend, but it is terrific at the table, and if one wants to really try something different, pop this to go with your steaks on the grill in torrid summer weather! A lovely and consistently unique concept in Brut Rosé. 2012-2020." (08/12) -
