Philippe Glavier Idylle Céleste Rosé Grand Cru Extra Brut NV
Philippe and Véronique make some of the most stylish Blanc de Blancs Champagne we have ever tried. Even their labels are beautiful and are graced by playful and elegant cherubs. It might sound a bit frou frou, but it isn’t. They have 4.5 hectares with over 47 plots that have many different nuances of soil types and sun exposure which all contribute different attributes to their wines. This elegant blended rosé Champagne is based on the 2015 vintage and it effortlessly delivers a swath of sumptuous summer berry fruit across the palate. Despite its pronounced fruitiness, it remains utterly lifted and fresh with an appealing mineral salt tang. Sappy finish. A true beauty.
Robin says "A delicious rosé that still has the Glaviers' typical freshness but paired with a fruity succulent core. They make two rosés and this one has a more ethereal touch which is produced mostly from Chardonnay and smattering of Grand Cru Pinot Noir from Ambonnay. Poised, pretty and succulent."
