Soft salmon hues twinkle with orange highlights that show off the delicate stream of bubbles. On the nose, the wine is elegant and refined, with an exquisite combination of wild strawberries, raspberries, nectarines, pears, almonds and wheat. These aromas follow through on the palate, with a magical juxtaposition of red, white and citrus fruits. There is an immediate impression of harmony and precision, plus a radiance and concentration that make for superb finesse. Fleshiness allies with mineral thrust. Power mingles with softness. Silkiness unfurls on the finish in an explosion of dazzling purity.
L’Intemporelle Rosé remains true to the seductive, well-balanced style that made L’Intemporelle de Mailly Grand Cru a hit from the word ‘go’. This is a charming vintage rosé, fruity but with no loss of that subtle harmony of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that is the signature of its white counterpart.

The 2005 vintage was a year of marked contrasts between seasons and regions. Following a fairly harsh winter, 2005 had a mild spring with relatively warm temperatures all year long. There was above average sunshine and a slight water deficit, as had been the case throughout the dry cycle of 2005/2004 and 2003. The heat and humidity in July produced larger grapes and bunches, rather unusually for the Champagne region, while the cooler weather in August, followed by a very sunny month of September, led to favourable ripening in spite of heavy parasite pressure. The harvest dates were “typical” of those of the decade: September 12th for Chardonnays and the following day for Pinots Noirs.
