Camel Valley, Pinot Noir Rosé 2009

Not quite as special as either the 2007 or 2005 was at this point, but it is extremely fresh and elegant, with a gentle fruit-driven style, making it one of the very best English sparkling wines produced, even if Bob and Sam Lindo have been even more successful with other vintages. 18pts/20
