René Geoffroy Rosé de Saignee Brut Premier Cru

Released too early to be labelled as a vintage, Geoffroy’s gorgeous rosé hails entirely from the outstanding 2008 harvest. Saignée skin contact extracts delightful texture and structure from pinot noir, giving sophistication to its soft raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate and watermelon flavours. $95 at www.champagnegallery.com.au
