Tasting Notes

This fantastic Champagne comes from the villages of Pierry and Moussy in the sud-Epernay sub-region of Champagne. Bruno Michel has been organic since 1999. A saignée rosé, this elegant bubbly was made by a very short cuvaison of Pinot Meunier. Spicy and full-bodied, it is a great example of a sparkling wine that can be enjoyed with dinner, even red meat!

    A wonderful example of a brut rose, this bottling is slightly fuller than some others, with a subtle hint of spice on the back palate. Lovely!

    This is not a casual sipping rosé! On various occasions, I have enjoyed this and have it come across as rich and satisfying, or brooding and spicy, on one occasion I think I recall my tasting notes saying "good 1er cru Nuit-St-Georges with bubbles." However you describe it, you cannot argue against this being an intensely flavored, highly original Champagne with real personality.

    Every time I taste this Champagne, I want to sit and linger with it for the rest of the afternoon. It's a totally nerdy rose, unlike anything else we have. Barrel fermented, all Pinot Meunier and aged in bottle for a year, this particular bottling is all from 2006 fruit. Red cherry, spice, vanilla, leather, funky earth with medium plus acidity and a long finish. What a fabulous, fun rose Champagne!

    The Bruno Michel Les Roses will speak to red wine lovers. The characteristics are so similar to a Pinot Noir such as ripe cherry, orange peel, earth and spice. This has the stuffing to pair with many foods. While this is not a Champagne for every palate, it is a special treat for some of us!

    This was the most controversial (and also one of the best selling) Champagnes at our recent pre-Valentine's day tasting. One taster described it as tasting like shoe leather, and many others described it as savory and the best of the day. It might be my favorite rose Champagne in our stock and pairs perfectly with cedar plank salmon and no more than one other person... Unless you have extra bottles! Deep, intense and very red wine like in flavor you need to be ready for it before opening it!

    One of the most unique Champagnes that I have tasted. And one of the best. The Bruno Michel Les Rose is made from 100% Pinot Meunier and is full bodied and dry, with a nice red color and lively bubbles. This Champagne will go great with salmon or fowl and is produced to accompany food.

    A standout rosé from a boutique producer who is delivering everything and more for the most experienced Champagne afficianado to the novice taster. At K&L's Champagne tent event this year, this rosé stood out far beyond the rest of the competition. On the nose fresh strawberry and toast, followed by a rich yet delicate mid-palate and a finish of perfection! The grasping fresh fruit quality is insane without being overwhelming. The finesse and elegance of this French beauty is even more mind boggling. Enjoy this before the word gets out!
