Press Reviews:

`Lenoble`s pinot noir is too rich to stand along as a rosé, so the house tactically calls upon the structure and fresh acid drive of its Chouilly chardonnay. A philosophy of elegance is upheld by just 12% pinot noir red wine and the result is a more toned demeanour in medium salmon copper, tannin structure and spicy oak presence. It` a precocious thing, with a momentary fanfare of tangelo, candied strawberry, red cherry and musk, proclaiming Bisseuil pinot noir more dramatically than its small inclusion would suggest, then immediately vanishing. The citrus fruits of Chouilly are articulated through the discreetly handled texture of a glimpse of oak. It concluses elegant and fine, thanks to the tension and chalk mineral structure of Chouilly.` 93 points, Tyson Stelzer`s Champagne Guide 2018-2019

`This has enlivening tropical fruits with a swathe of tart and tangy citrus cast into peaches and red cherries on the palate. Watermelon-like freshness at the finish. Drink now.` James Suckling, 4th October 2017

`If you like Chardonnay-led rosé, this is a prime choice made from 88% Chouilly with 12% Bisseuil Pinot Noir. Lovely salmon color, rose-scented, deceptive delicacy, for there is also the sturdy matière of Pinot in a great year, making this one of my favorite Champagnes with a good variety of dishes – from salmon trout, to fresh-caught mackerel, red mullet, and yes, Peking duck.` 92pts, Michael Edwards, The World of Fine Wine, December 2018

`I love this house, I love this rosé and I love the philosophy of Anne Malassagne and her brother Antoine (...) This is a top producer flying under the radar making high-quality wines. (...) this non-vintage rosé (based on 2012 fruit) is fantastic for the price. Flavours of yellow cherry and redcurrant with great depth that would suit pigeon salad with a raspberry vinaigrette.` Gerard Basset OBE MW MS, Drink 2016 -2020

`Salmon pink in colour, it has a very savoury nose at first, with hints of fino sherry and a salty, nutty edge that carries through on to the palate. After a few sips, and with a few canapés, the full personality emerges: ripe berries, wild strawberry, cherry and spice, rich and uplifting to the last drop. A very low dosage keeps the flavours sophisticated (...) nd the predominance of chardonnay brings a welcome mineral acidity on the finish. Far too tempting not to share.` 20 best Champagnes, Nuria Stylianou,, 16 November 2017
