To the Eye
A subtle coral with nuances of orange, reminiscent of old roses and the result of the prolonged ageing in the chalk cellars. A delicate joyful effervescence hints at the aromatic complexity of this blended rose.
To the Nose
The subtle elegance of this wine produced from grands and premiers crus reveals notes of strawberry and raspberry. The Pinot Noir red wines - 7% of the blend - offer the complexity of mild pepper and sandalwood.
On the Palate
A sophisticated wine, full bodied and generous, this is the very expression of the year 1999, enhanced by more than twelve years of ageing in thousand-year old cellars. The refined texture is reminiscent of the silky rich harmony of hibiscus syrup.
"Roasted nut and toasted brioche notes herald this fine, creamy version. The persistent acidity is beautifully integrated with flavors of black cherry coulis, dried black currant and fleur de sel, accented by a hint of Grand Marnier liqueur. Drink now through 2028."
"A transparent beauty from 1999, this rose hums with red fruit. It layers red spices with wild mushroom scents, green fig and floral strawberries, maintaining clarity and freshness through its fine bubbles. The flavors are generous and bold, while held with tight-fisted discretion. Pour this with roast arctic char and hen-of-the-woods mushrooms. "
