Wine tasting notes

Pascal’s Anthrocyanes Rose is a blend of 67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, vinified entirely in wooden casks, with a proportion of the Pinot Noir is given a two day maceration, the rest crushed and taken off the skins immediately. The Pinot character is striking, with bittersweet cherry notes, a touch of tangerine skin, wonderful delivery of fruit and a strongly vinous character that is big in personality, but also fine with it. Like so many of Pascal’s wines, this is gourmandise and worth sitting with a while.

Winery Information

Pascal Doquet

Champagne Pascal Doquet Winemaker since 1982, I managed the family estate Doquet Jeanmaire from 1995 to 2003, both in terms of the management of the vine and the development of cuvées. More and more precise and biological work was then set up in the vineyard, aiming at the most complete expression of the different soils occupied by the plot. Totally independent since 2004, after the purchase of the shares of the family company held by my sisters, I can deepen without constraint.. read more

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2018 )90 pts

The NV Rosé Premier Cru Anthocyanes is a beautifully pure and fruity Rosé that was fermented in oak. It’s pretty rich and intense but also very fresh and reveals some fine, vinous tannins, while the finish is quite firm and a bit drying. This assemblage blends the vintages of 2012 (20%), 2011 (46%) and 2010 (34%). Bottled in September 2013, the wine was disgorged in July 2017 with a dosage of 4.5 grams per liter. Tasted April 2018.
