Tinged the palest pink, this harmonious rosé offers a fresh and pleasing juiciness, with a fine mousse enlivening flavors of ripe white cherry, candied ginger and pink grapefruit sorbet. Hints of toast and spicy mineral show on the finish. Disgorged July 2018. Drink now through 2023. 8,300 cases made, 250 cases imported.

This pale rosé has attractive dried-strawberry and gently nutty overtones that create a complex, fresh and attractive impression. The palate delivers a very approachable and attractively round style with a super fresh strawberry finish. Drink now.

This bottle of Paillard's NV Rosé Première Cuvée was disgorged in January 2018 after 36 months sur lattes. It's a bright, tensile extra brut Champagne, offering up aromas of crisp red berries, tangerine and freshly baked bread. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, racy and incisive, with brisk acids, a fine mousse and a taut, chalky finish. To my palate, this classy rosé will really reward a bit of bottle age, as it's decidedly tangy and tight-knit today.

A blend from 12 vineyards, this wine is crisp, with dryness as well as intense red-berry fruits. It is a tangy, structured wine, juicy and full of acidity. The bottling is now ready to drink.

Paillard's NV Extra Brut Rosé Premiere Cuvée is beautifully perfumed and gracious. Light on its feet, the Rosé Premiere Cuvée is done in a light, refreshing style that is best suited for drinking before a meal or with lighter foods. Cranberry, white pepper, mint and chalk add to a feeling of savoriness and freshness.
