"Crunchy white peach and cherry fruit flavors are enriched by hints of grilled nut, lemon pith and fresh thyme in this firm and focused rosé Champagne, with a fine, raw silk–like mousse. Disgorged October 2018. Drink now through 2023"

"a blend of fifty percent chardonnay, thirty-seven percent pinot noir and thirteen percent pinot meunier. Ten percent of the pinot noir is still red wine, giving the wine a lovely, pale salmon color and the dosage this year is four grams per liter. The base year of the new release is 2013, with a small bit of reserve wine blended in. The bouquet is very refined and lifted in the classic Ployez style, offering up scents of wild strawberries, orange zest, chalky minerality, patissière, dried roses and a touch of fresh nutmeg in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and elegant, with a fine core, utterly refined mousse, bright acids and impeccable balance on the long, complex and racy finish. This is still a young wine, but very easy to drink today. That said, it is built for at least a few years of bottle age and will really be stunning from 2020 onwards. 2017-2035."
