Tasting Notes

Jerome’s Trudon "Rosephile" Brut Rosé Champagne shows the charming, elegant side of his craft in the best possible light. It is entirely Meunier, with 7% vinified red from a massal-selected plot of over 60 years of age. I wrote Luxardo cherry in all caps in my notebook and this wine has fantastic purity of fruit, but a finish that is dry and balanced. He decided to do only 30% malolactic fermentation on this batch to preserve its snap and refreshment. Be careful, this is very easy to drink and the second glass tastes better than the first!

    If you've read some of my other reviews, you may have noticed my slight obsession with Meunier dominant champagne. I think the grape adds a little depth and suppleness to such high acid wines, but by no means has the driven, mouthwatering acidity been lost in the fineness of the Rosephile. More than half of the wine is from the tough, yet highly valued 2012 vintage mixed with reserve wine. It is concentrated and complex with an undertone of floral elements that interact ceremoniously with a chalky minerality that sticks to the back palate.

    I love how this champagne is Pinot Meunier dominant, as I feel this bottle is a perfect expression of how tasty and greatly fruit forward this grape variety could be in a nice bottle of Champagne. Worth a try, especially if you're a single varietal nerd like myself.

    This is a beautiful rosé champagne from the Marne region in Champagne. It has very pretty, delicate flavors of white cherry and strawberry, highlighted by creamy chalkiness and racy acidity. A delightful addition to our import portfolio at under $35.

    This is the only pure Meunier rose that we have that has been made by blending red wine with white. About 91% of the base is pressed gently to make the white wine, while 9% is sourced from over 60 year old vines and made as red. The result is a rose Champagne with decadent luxardo cherry flavor, balanced by a precise, fine bead and very good minerality. The finish is dry and long!
