Light cherry color (made via skin contact instead of blending, as is usually done). This keeps the wine fruitier. Medium yeast and good acidity along with a strikingly sharp honeysuckle flavor. Overall this wine really wowed me. Softer finish, where the wine smooths out.

Super crisp, with great cherry and raspberry flavors and acidity well in balance. A wonderfully crafted wine.

Faint sweet honey and flowers on the nose. Gigantic bubbles on the tongue, extremely crisp and dry but with a sweeter edge than most nice Champagnes I've had. The finish leaves a lovely sweetness on the font of the mouth, while the back remains bone dry - and jealous.

Tried along with the '88 Brut Blanc. This wine, while still rich and powerful, was much softer than the blanc, with flavors of redcurrants and a smooth, creamy feel.

Golden yellow hue and a slightly bretty nose (good). Very bad weather in this vintage led to very low yields and a unique wine. High acidity, and a rich, loud, aggressive wine. Soft finish, but the nose and flavor profile until that is intense. Very burgundian.

Beautiful cherry notes on the nose. Raspberries and cherry flavors dominate. A soft wine with medium acidity, enough sugars to keep it balanced. Fantastic.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The effervescence of the Rare Vintage Rosé 1985 is fine and long-lasting. The nose is extremely complex and is dominated by a combination of ripe red fruit, mild spices and leather, accompanied by aromas of undergrowth. Composition: This vintage is composed of 17 Grand and Premier Crus and is dominated by the strength and fullness of black grapes. 49% Pinot Noir 14.5% Pinot Meunier 36.5% Chardonnay Occasion: Rare Vintage Rosé 1985 is the ideal complement for main dishes including poultry, veal and lamb, game birds and fish. It also goes well with creamy cheeses, such as Brillat-Savarin or Chaource, or very mature hard cheeses, including Cantal or Salers.
