I love the 2003 Marguet Rose because it fills that important gap between racy, austere Champagne and the rich, toasty, heavy sparklers of the new world. From a very ripe vintage, this rose Champagne is well-endowed with fruit, showing aromas of strawberry, fig, and dried fruits. The palate is textured, with balanced medium+ acidity, a broad mouthfilling mousse, and a long, crisp, spciey/savory finish. This is a Champagne to have with a meal, as it is textured enough to stand up to poultry, pork, and heavier fishes like Salmon, flavorful enough to hold conversation with spices and savory seasonings, and the acidity and bubbles offer a refreshing cleanse of the palate between bites. It's slso great with chocolate!
