Duval-Leroy Brut Rosé Champagne de Saignée NV

01012009This was our wine to ring in the new year… and what a way to start 2009. The year has just started, so I’ll keep this short. Y’all know I love the bubbly and I was kinda’ craving the rosé side of the category, so this looked mighty tasty on the shelf.

I popped it open at the crack of the new year and wow… this stuff is good bubbly (thank God, because who wants their new year’s bottle to suck??). The nose gave up berry and lemon. A sip was all about the fresh berry juice (think light strawberry and then a bunch of ripe red raspberry) with a squirt of lemon and a long mineral-edged finish.

Was it something I’d drink again? Hell yeah. This is tasty stuff.

Happy new year!

~$80 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars.
