This wine’s pale cloud-pink color is a mirror to its pale pink fruit, a pink with bass notes and brighter harmonies that fill the wine with freshness and gracious flavor impact. This gains its color from pinot noir grown in Cumières resting for a brief, gentle maceration on the skins, picking up red fruit notes without any sense of tannins or astringency. Blended with chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, it creates a wine with intensity in its structure, while it feels like nothing more than a caress. The clarity and precision of the wine allow the flavors to last unfettered. Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon built a new winemaking facility devoted to rosé in 2007, and his talent with rosé wines may be unmatched in contemporary Champagne. His 2010 is all of a piece, a joyous rosé.

Beautifully crisp and fresh, this is a young, tightly textured wine that is already so refreshing. Its red fruit character is just a part of the mineral and tannin texture and the pure line of fragrant acidity. Very pale in color, this sophisticated wine could do with some aging. Drink from 2018.

The viticulture here takes its cues from Burgundy with lower yields (40hl/ha), leaf removal, ripe picking and cooling overnight and some cold soaking and skin contact. The chardonnay juice is added to bring the acidity and balance into play, but this also has attractive rose-like florals that really speak of pinot noir. There's orange zest and some pink grapefruit and even handy nutty elements that creep in. This is every bit as terrific as the 2008. The palate has roundness, flesh and smoothly arranged phenolics. An almost saline chardonnay influence provides a vinous attraction here. Super silky, and the chardonnay finishes it fresh but with a punch. Drink now.
