"The 2006 Brut Rose is a gorgeous wine endowed with an expressive bouquet suggestive of roses, spices, minerals and crushed berries. It possesses wonderful richness, depth and clarity in a cool, beguiling style. The Brut Rose can be enjoyed today, although I am curious to see how it develops in the coming years. It is a huge over-achiever in its price range. The 2006 Brut Rose is mostly Pinot Noir, of which 8% is still wine, plus a dash of Chardonnay, from the villages of Ay, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Bouzy, Verzenay and Ambonnay. It is a serious rose from Deutz."
