Louis Bouillot Crémant de Bourgogne "Perle d'Aurore" Brut Rosé

SKU #1015268 90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Louis Bouillot ‘Perle’ series is exceptionally well-crafted for its price and all of the wines are recommendable. I’ve picked out the Rosé Perle d’Aurore, though, as rosé is something of a Bouillot speciality (over a million bottles are produced every year) and it’s a wine which isn’t shy about its burgundian identity. 'We want,' says Marcel Combes, 'vinosity above all, almost a touch of tannin, with what you could almost call a compote style of fruit.' Autumn red fruits are there on the nose, but in a soft and understated style; on the palate, by contrast, those same notes reappear in an undeniably vinous, resonant and firmly stated manner. This is a true mealtime Crémant, based on a blend of 70 per cent Pinot and 20 per cent Gamay with 10 per cent Chardonnay, the fruit principally coming from the Châtillonais, the Côtes du Couchois, the Hautes Côtes and the southern, limestone-soiled sector of Beaujolais.

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Gentle strawberry fruit fills this soft rosé, its zesty finish keeping it clean. A fine aperitif. Inner quote mark (4/2014)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Full, ripe wine, layered with fruits and a dry, more mineral core. The wine has good depth of flavor, strawberries, red currants and a citrus cut that keeps the wine fresh at the end. (RV) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tea rose, ground spice and orange zest accents lace this firm rosé, with crunchy white peach and blanched almond flavors on a lively, open-knit palate. (AN) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

K&L Notes

This delightful sparkling rosé wine comes from Burgundy. It is made of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay Noir. On the palate it is very rich and fruity but just off-dry on the finish. The mousse is explosive, with a very creamy palate impression. It shows just a hint of the earthiness of a Pinot Noir from Burgundy. This is charming rosé, subtle and delightful.

Man, I love this wine. I had this again the other evening with pank-crusted salmon and a spinach salad, and it was light, pretty and delicious. Soft raspberry, strawberry and citrus with the tiniest hint of sweetness. The acidity really worked with my salmon's fattiness. Of course, the wine's pink sparkly glimmer on the dinner table in my wine glasses added to the ambiance. Stock up for birthday celebrations, brunch, baby showers, or just because it's a Tuesday night!

This is absolutely one of the best tasting Cremant Rose that I've had. It is balanced and crisp, with nice notes of fruitiness and acidity. Always buy two bottles...because your first one will keep you wanting more!
