Champagne G.H. MUMM Brut Rose NV
The tasting note that comes with this wine (from Champagne G.H. MUMM) suggests pink grape fruit, strawberry, cherry and red currant in the bouquet - absolutely true, but I also taste sweet grapefruit, sun warmed strawberries and crushed cherry - perception is a wonderful thing!
The palate delivers all that the bouquet suggests with a crisp acidity, mild to medium autolysis and a long balanced finish.
The key to this wine that sets it apart from other Rose Champagnes is balance - there is such a delightful poised elegance about this wine. It reminds me of late summer afternoons and listening to soft mood music and slow dancing.
