Chardonnay (58%) Pinot Noir (35%) with 7% red wine
Grand Ross is a blend of 12 Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages including Avize, Chouilly, Cramant Ay, Ambonnay and Bouzy with 7% red wine from Bouzy & Ambonnay.
Strong, bright, clear salmon-pink hue. Generous mousse, made up of fine, constant bubbles. Long-lasting ribbon.
Fresh, ripe summer fruits, aromas of wild red bramble fruits with raspberries, wild strawberries and redcurrants blending with the more insistent fragrances of sweet spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg. On swirling distinct and persistent aromas of freshly-baked brioche, sweet buns and bread, and the subtly milky fragrance of fresh butter and whipping cream. Hints of wild roasted almonds and warmed mandarin peel.
Palate: Rich, mellow, lightly structured, with vivacious fruit flavours echoing the aromas, with one noticeable difference - red fruit jams (as opposed to freshly picked fruit), blackcurrants and morello cherries. Generous and full-bodied, the mouthfeel is opulent and ripe, marrying roundness and concentration, infinitely silky, elegantly perfumed, with velvety bubbles. The finish is delicate and refined, with pleasurably persistent gingerbread aromas, leaving overall impressions of depth, intensity of flavour, and exemplary length.
Enjoy with saltwater fish, garnished with rich spices, olives or tomatoes, or more elaborate sauces. Try with small game, served with a spicy foie gras sauce. It is ideal with berry fruit tarts, zabaglione, or fresh fruit salad.
