Arras Vintage Rosé 2009
This sophisticated rosé sparkling boasts alluring complexity and a vibrant character. It's moderate salmon-pink in colour with a hint of crimson and a lively yet fine, persistent bead. The 2009 vintage was disgorged before the 2008 vintage, due to warmer growing conditions and the wine reaching its own point of perfection at an earlier tirage age. Fresh red berries complemented by oyster, field mushroom and toast. This is a low-dosage style with structural elegance built around fine tannins and an acid backbone, which is seamless and persistent. The red wine and oak structure of this wine make it a great companion to rich and complex food pairings.
