Possessing a fine colour, this fragrant rose Champagne exhibits aromas of ripe fresh fruits.
The NV Cuvee Rubis is mostly Pinot Noir aged in cask (90%), with a small addition of Chardonnay (10%) which Champs uses to give the wine a touch of freshness and elegance. This is an incredibly friendly wine that comes across more like a wine than a Champagne. The Chambolle-like perfumed fruit is striking, as is the wine's superb balance and restrained, elegant personality. It is a superb effort at this level. This year the wine is 2005 and 2004 juice, and I tasted the November, 2007 disgorgement. Unfortunately Vilmart was in between vintages of the vintage rose, the Grand Cellier Cuvee Rubis, so I was unable to taste that wine. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.
