NV Andre Clouet, Bouzy Grand Cru Brut Rose

The nose is refreshingly phenolic and edgy. Mild cherries fill out the wine with a gorgeous round taste and mouthfeel. Nearly creamy, but cut by a very dry, woody sharpness and ideal acidity. The fruit comes out more in the finish -- evolving to raspberries, strawberries and cream -- but is matched at every step by dominating notes of thick toast and lightly sweetened whole grain cereal. Distinct Clouet salinity. From half-bottle.

The controlled floral fruit of this wine along with its Silver Brut-like salinity make this wine a great match for Mona Lisa gouda.
