Louis Brochet Rosé Heritage
Bruised cherry hue. Really bright and fruity nose with a hint of rich tea biscuit. The first sip shows a real luscious lift and this lovely vinous aspect to it. This is remarkably generous wine with just the right amount of edge to it. Cherries, wild strawberries. Great length with this lovely fruity texture right on the end.
The Brochet name bounds around the region of Champagne and beyond. But not this one. Until now. Having tasted several hundred wines during an exhausting trip to Champagne, we came across this magic producer and the wine jumped out of the glass at us. Based in the village of Ecueil in the north west of the region, they produce masterfully juicy, rich wines from their ample 13 hectare holdings. They hold both VD and HVE and you sense that honesty, thought and precision in their wines.
