“An elegant style of rosé, displaying more citrus and yeast notes than berry. It finishes lean and dry. Try with chilled shellfish or charcuterie.” -Wine Spectator
Gonet-Medeville Champagne Premier Cru Extra Brut Rose NV
90pts Wine & Spirits Magazine– N/V vintage
BEST BUY! “Made from chardonnay (70%), pinot noir (27%), and a small addition of red wine, this rose is vinified in old oak casks. That wood influence is apparent at first taste, accenting the wine’s power and density.
With air, red fruit arrives to fill out the broad, toasty structure. A match for toro sashimi.”

The onion colored NV Premier Cru Rosé Extra Brut is a blend of 70% Chardonnay from a steep, east-facing vineyard named La Louvière, with 27% Pinot Noir and 3% red wine from Ambonnay. Pure and very fresh on the nose, the chalky, very vinous and delicate bouquet leads to an almost steely mineral palate with great freshness and purity.
This is a straight, complex, very vital and persistent Rosé that is mostly based on the 2013 vintage, completed with wine from the 2012 vintage. Pretty complex and terribly fresh. Disgorged in November 2016 as Extra Brut. Tasted April 2018.

Disgorged in March 2018, the latest release of Gonet-Medeville’s NV Extra Brut Rosé Premier Cru opens in the glass with notes of orange rind, sweet red berries and gingerbread. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a textural attack, good depth and dimension at the core, ripe but racy acids and a long, mouthwatering finish. (5/2020)

A chalky note on the nose that underscores flavors of ripe peach and raspberry fruit in this well-balanced rose’ with a satiny mousse. Bright and lightly mouthwatering, with accents of pickled ginger and candied grapefruit zest enlivening the finish. Disgorged April 2019. Drink now through 2023.
