N.V. Jean Laurent Champagne Brut Rosé - France, Champagne (1/4/2009)
Allred brought this bottle to dinner. Jean Laurent is a grower/producer located in the Aube region which is about 70 miles South of the main Champagne growing areas. He has a reputation as one of the best winemakers in that region and his family has been growing Champagne for almost 1000 years. This wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir and aged 3 years before release. A beautiful reddish pink color. Fragrant and filled with strawberries, orange zest and almonds. Full bodied. Very enjoyable. 92 points.
