For Vinoland's annual New Year's Eve bubbly tasting I chose two rosé wines - one French, one domestic. Both wines are remarkably similiar to look at, with their deep salmon hue, but quite different on the palate.
The Mumm Brut Rosé is, as always, delightfully pleasant and approachable with subtle black cherries and strawberries and, thankfully, only 15% Chardonnay content.
The Cuveé Rose Laurent Perrier has always been one of my top three favoutire Champagnes, and his bottle did not fail to disappoint my palate. Made with 100% Pinot noir this elegant red-berry, subtle rosy-vanilla, lean citrusy-mineral wine, in it's distinctively shaped bottle, is simply sublime. And that's all I'm going to say on the matter - I'm wasting valuable drinking time.
Happy New Year to you all!
