The new release of R. H. Coutier’s “Cuvée Rosé” is young and very fine, showing the same beautiful cherry-rose color that comes from a large percentage of Ambonnay still pinot noir added to the blend. The cépages here is fifty-five percent chardonnay and forty-five percent pinot noir, and as is typical of the house style preferred by René Coutier, about half of the vins clairs in the blend did not go through malo. The bouquet is bright and classy, wafting form the glass in a mix of cherries, a hint of pomegranate, beautifully complex soil tones, wheat toast and a nice topnote of rose petals. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and focused, with a lovely core of fruit, superb balance and grip, snappy acids and excellent length on the long and vinous finish. Fine juice, but clearly aimed to perform optimally at the table. 2014-2025+.

Light orange-pink. Vibrant red berry and orange zest scents are complicated by chalky mineral and jasmine nuances. Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering lively strawberry and tangerine flavors... Light orange-pink. Vibrant red berry and orange zest scents are complicated by chalky mineral and jasmine nuances. Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering lively strawberry and tangerine flavors and a touch of brioche. Concentrated yet lithe on the finish. -- Josh Raynolds

Cranberry, white flowers, mint and chalk are some of the signatures. Precise, sculpted and nuanced throughout, the Rosé is wonderfully perfumed, with lovely pliancy but less density than one might expect from an Ambonnay Champagne. Much of that has to do with the 52% Chardonnay in the blend. The current release is based on 2012 with the addition of reserve wines. Dosage is 6 grams/liter. Disgorged: January 27, 2015.
