Ranked #64 of 137 N/V Pinot Noir Chardonnay from Champagne
Medium to full ruby to brick-red colour. The bouquet is based on red and dark fruits, especially berries, with a lacing of spices. The palate is quite rich and deep with lots of flavour - but it's not tannic. Dry, savoury and fine, with a long, warming finish. Stacks of pinot character.
Drink: 2016 to 2016

The latest release of the NV Rosé Sauvage Brut is, as usual, notably deep and saturated in hue thanks to the significant percentage of red wine in its blend. Unfurling with aromas of red berries, plums and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a ripe but sapid core of fruit and appreciable phenolic presence that simultaneously demand food and render it versatile at table.

The NV Rosé Sauvage Brut has a dark salmon color (thanks to the 25% of red wine) and offers an intense, aromatic, almost meaty bouquet of red fruits (red currant, cherries) along with earthy, chalky and yeasty brioche flavors. Vinous indeed on the nose! On the palate, this is a very clear, fresh and aromatic Rosé that comes a long as a sparkling red wine like Trollinger. It's so charming, round and fresh but also dry and well structured. The finish is clear, dry and cleansing, just gorgeous. This is a perfect Champagne to be served with fish, white meat and even barbeque. Tasted from Lot L1702547055 in November 2017.

The NV Rosé Sauvage Brut – with 25% of red wine – has a dark salmon color and offers spicy cherry flavors. Very fruit-intense, with tension and a grippy tannin structure (which might divide opinions), this cuvée eventually lacks a bit of finesse. With that being said, it wasn't easy to taste this rather simple wine after the great vintage wines from Charles Heidsieck.

The house goes a little far in describing this as ‘the most extravagant and audacious rosé in the
world’, but when it was first released in the early 2000s, it may well have been. Camus resolved
to create a distinctive rosé to contrast the Charles Heidsieck style, a wine of intense colour
and dark fruit presence. That it is. In its full, unabashed crimson-red hue, it certainly floats far
down the deep end of the champagne rosé pool. In colour, palate grip, concentration and food-
matching versatility, it’s best considered part-way between champagne rosé and red Burgundy,
and should be served in big red wine glasses, as they do at the house. Distinctive, inimitable,
potent and rustic, this is a champagne rosé with a personality all of its own. There’s creaming
soda here, sarsaparilla and liquorice, too, blood orange, strawberries, red cherris, tangelos and
tamarillos, and this year an alluringly savoury twist of Campari, pink pepper and pipe smoke.
True to its fluoro-pink label, it’s ready for loud parties. For all its flamboyance, it’s got length,
tight acid line, the harmonious texture of lees age, well-integrated dosage and dry, finely
textured tannin grip – just to prove it has a serious side, too.
