JM Goulard L’Eclatante 2013 Extra Brut
This is a stunning rosé. 100% Old Vine Pinot Meunier from a historic family vineyard. 100% from 2013, the juice is macerated with the skins for about 48 hours for color and structure (saignée), then aged in a neutral oak barrel for one year, before finally aging in the bottle for almost three more years! If you love great Burgundy, you will love this Champagne. It is a very dry wine, so be prepared with something rich for pairing. Roasted lamb and veggies cooked over flames in December sounds good!
