2013 Doyard Oeil de Perdrix Rosé Champagne
Kinetic and Chalky Champagne
Single vineyard Champagnes are rare and unique beauties in the Champagne world. Their ability to capture a single plot’s personality in a bottle over time is captivating.
This Champagne comes from a walled vineyard (clos) just behind Doyard’s estate. Planted in 1956 these biodynamically farmed vines have an excellent aspect, capturing the sun and injecting oodles of flavour into the grapes.
‘… kinetic intensity on the palate, its flavors of citrus and stone fruits already showing a subtle complexity and nuance while being anchored by pronounced notes of chalk, and the finish is long and refined, with fruit aromas feeling inseparable from mineral ones….’
