"A beautiful wine"
Bérèche Campania Remensis Rosé (2016)

Posted by Joe Salamone

Bérèche's Campania Remensis pulls off a magical and rare feat: it's supremely elegant while being subtly, and intensely deep.

Campania Remensis has become a rosé that we judge all others by.

Raphaël Bérèche is one of the region's most talented young growers. The Campania Remensis is one of the best places to witness his skill.

Bérèche has vines in both the Marnes and Montagne de Reims. Campania Remensis comes mostly from Ormes, a gravelly terroir in the northern section of Montagne de Reims called the Petite Montagne (the same area where Prevost and many noteworthy others are.)

Bérèche's signature is delivering deeply vinous Champagnes with pitch-perfect clarity. Campania Remensis exemplifies this and delivers an energy and resonant harmony that makes it truly noteworthy.

We loved the Campania Remensis Rosé since its first vintage in 2009. It's a shocking example of Champagne. The 2016 has a laser focus boasting a chalky kinetic energy and an unrelenting impression of effortless class and finesse.

This is one of our favorite rosés from one of our favorite growers. The crystalline purity is show-stopping. It serves as a paradigm for the level of elegance that rosé can achieve without sacrificing complexity or fascination.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2016 Rosé Campania Remensis is a beautiful wine. Gracious and ethereal, the Campania Remensis is a bit tense in 2016, but it nevertheless possesses striking persistence and tons of character. Bright red berry and floral notes race through this taut, crystalline Rosé. I would open it a few hours in advance. Dosage is 3.5 grams per liter Most of this fruit emerges from a parcel in Ormes."
