The 2009 Brut Rosé Grand Cru Special Club is fabulous. Rich, powerful and authoritative, the 2009 hits all the right spots with its creamy yet focused personality. Don't let the pale-colored hue fool you, this is a serious Rosé endowed with real density and pure power. Hints of chalk, rose petal, cranberry and white pepper lift from the glass, but it is the wine's texture and overall feel that are most impressive. This is a fabulous showing. The 2009 is 65% Pinot Noir, 27% Chardonnay and 8% still Pinot. Disgorged: March 2015
