Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The Herbert Beaufort 'Cuvée Yllen' Brut Rosé is made entirely from pinot noir and is a nice, dark rosé color, indicating that a substantial percentage of the blend is made up of Bouzy rouge. The current release is from the base year of 2014 and was disgorged at the end of August of 2017. The wine offers up a fine and vinous nose of cherries, rhubarb, rye bread, a fine base of soil and a touch of orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and frothy, with bright acids, a good core, fine focus and balance and a long, nascently complex finish. The dosage here is on the more generous side, but there is plenty of acidity to balance this and the wine is already drinking nicely in its youth, though it will be even better with a few years in the cellar." — 90 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #72 (Nov./Dec. 2017)
