The rosé from 100% Pinot Noir was matured in wood and combines subtle bass with floral fruity aromas and an elevated drinking flow. The raspberry's core oil and the currant's wood define the tangy, animating palate with a long, finely tart finish.

Tasting note from from 03.06.2019, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser

The vineyard of Geraldine Lacourte and her husband Richard Desvignes is located in Ecueil in the heart of the Petit Montagne de Reims. They concentrate entirely on the 1er Cru sites in this village, which means they have short distances and spend a lot of time in their vineyards. They switched to organic viticulture in 2016 and their vineyards are bursting with vitality. Both of them have seen a lot of the world and only decided to take over the parental estate from Geraldine at a late stage. Geraldine worked in marketing in Germany for years! The style is therefore not dusty, but rather modern. The base wines are fermented in stainless steel and do not necessarily make the BSA. Only a part is aged in barrique. Very clear, precise and tight, they reflect their origin beautifully, never aggressive, always with a fine fruit and elegant depth.

Color

Light rosé with organgenic reflexes.

Nose

Aromas of hay, pickled raspberries, rhubarb, cranberries and redcurrant leaves silhouette the restrained, herbaceous and slightly smoky outlined nose. Lacourte-Godbillon's Rosé 1er Cru Brut was vinified at 80% from the 2014 vintage and aged in bottle for 45 months until disgorgement in December 2018. With a little aeration, the delicate fruit combines with the floral top notes of mallow and the first notes of maturity.

Mouth

Fruity and tart on the palate, it is supported by its fine mousseux and delicate phenolic components. The rosé from 100% Pinot Noir was aged to 10% in wood and combines subtle bass with floral fruity aromas and upscale drinking flow. From the raspberry the core oil and from the currant the wood define the tart animating palate with a long, fine tart finish.
