Deceptively pretty; it smells like a June picnic basket, but on the palate it's silky, gauzy, detailed and sleek, with tertiary notes of leaf-smoke and lavender. It's significantly more youthful and frisky but also cornbread-y and lush.

BurghoundA wonderfully elegant and pure nose that is as much wine as it is Champagne as the fruit is more deeply pitched... this is more high-toned Pinot Noir in character. The flavors are delicious, complex and detailed with real depth and punch. A lovely but entirely serious Rose. 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Score: 93.

Wine SpectatorThis pale rosé offers complex aromas and flavors of dried berry, dried citrus and spice notes, all married to a firm structure and a refined texture. Less fruity than some rosés, yet very harmonious and inviting. Drink now through 2010. Score: 91. -Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2007.

International Wine Cellar90 points Pale salmon skin color. Complex nose combines strawberry preserves, ginger, molasses, nutmeg, flowers and earth. Bright, penetrating flavors of strawberry, raspberry and flowers, with complicating notes of smoke and minerals. A dense, saline Champagne with noteworthy flavor authority and length. Score: 90.
