The Sparkling Rosé Reserve 2014 (90% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier) is a real character and pick of the Vintage range; 1/3 of the base wine was fermented in oak, and those buttery, slightly vanilla-spiced pastries pop up here to throw an interesting light on some classic ripe strawberry fruit. The oak is quite present in this delicate style, but it does hold together with a fine mousse and a pleasing tartness. I would prefer less evident oak influence.
