We are honoured that Gerard Basset had this to say about AR Lenoble Rosé Terroirs Chouilly-Bisseuil:

“I love this house, I love this rosé and I love the philosophy of Anne Malassagne and her brother Antoine and what they are doing there. This is a top producer flying under the radar making high-quality wines. I like the vintage wines, but this non-vintage rosé (based on 2012 fruit) is fantastic for the price. Flavours of yellow cherry and redcurrant with great depth that would suit pigeon salad with a raspberry vinaigrette. Drink 2016 -2020.”
