Familia Geisse Brut Rosé Terroir 2010 (Traditional Method)

£33.00

The October 2019 edition of Decanter magazine, referring to the 2014 vintage of this wine, asserts: ‘aromas are refined and seductive, with notes of strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, wild flowers, citrus zest and delicate yeasty notes…its precision will captivate even those who enjoy high-end rosé Champagne’. The wine scored a remarkable 95 points!

This 2010 vintage is no less impressive and represents superb value. 

Just one last case remains (@15/05/20)!
