Brief Wine Notes – 2000 Vilmart Grand Cellier Rubis Rose Champagne

25 Jun

2000 Grand Cellier Rubis Rose Champagne
(40% Chardonnay, 60% Pinot Noir, aged in new wood for at least 10 months)

Has sort of a strawberry shortcake aroma, with a bit of springtime flowers (iris, cherry blossom, rose).  Has a strawberry velvet-tinged palate, with a good dose of tannins from the wood aging to indicate that this is a wine of substance.  A decent dose of acid further indicates that this wine might last a while.
