Petit Beaufort Grand Reserve Grand Charme Rosé 2011, Domaine Alice & Quentin Beaufort
Region: Prusly-sur-Ource, Côte d’Or, Burgundy
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
Production: Organic certified, hand harvested, natural yeasts, low sulphur, unfined & unfiltered
From vineyards just outside the Aube in southern Champagne, this technically is a Crémant de Bourgogne and is produced by Quentin Beaufort from the Champagne house of the same name (and a continuation of the organic pioneer, Maison André Beaufort).
Zero dosage and disgorged in November 2020, this has beautiful complexity from its extended time on the lees.
Savoury with red fruit this is vibrant and energetic yet is beginning to reveal the complexity that comes with bottle age.
