A delicate, expressive version, offering fine texture and well-knit acidity, with a smoky, mineral-tinged base note and flavors of wild strawberry, black cherry, biscuit, gumdrop, grated ginger and coconut. Drink now through 2020. ?AN

(70% pinot noir, 15% pinot meunier and 15% chardonnay L0001): Bright orange. Pungent red berries, orange zest and dried flowers on the fragrant nose. Chewy and expansive, offering bitter cherry and blood orange flavors complemented by buttered toast and anise. Picks up spiciness and minerality with air and finishes with excellent clarity and a hint of smoky lees.

The NV Brut Rose Premier Cru stands out for its vibrant, direct personality. Deceptively pale in color, the NV Brut Rose Premier Cru presents a tense, vibrant expression of fruit that is highly appealing. Sweet floral notes develop later, but ultimately this is a wine build on acidity and minerality. Lassalle’s Rose is striking in its beauty and purity. Disgorgement date: July 16, 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
