The Vintage Rose 2004 offers a deep pink color with the highlights of copper and delicate, light effervescence. The nose, extremely elegant, at first reveals flavors of ripe red fruits that burst on the tongue, before gradually giving way to violets, lilacs and light "pastry" notes. A discreet touch of ground coffee can also be distinguished. The attack is forthright and energetic.
This generous wine offers an astonishingly long and subtle finish. It is extremely complex and is distinguished by great freshness. On the palate, strong notes of fruit recall the refined nose. The finish is surprising in is persistence.
"Deep pink in color, this is a cherry-scented rosé with full pinot noir flavors. The texture is broad and round, its edges defined by pink grapefruit pith acidity. There's gentle chalkiness to the dry finish, making this appealing to drink now with salmon tartare. It should develop more depth of flavor with bottle age."
Wine & Spirits
"Open-knit, this lightly smoky, fruit-forward version offers lively, citrus-tinged acidity and a base note of mineral meshed with flavors of kirsch, dried strawberry and red licorice, showing a touch of almond paste. Drink now through 2024."
"Still very young, with the crispest of red currant fruits. There are almond and quince flavors to go with the raspberry juice acidity. At this stage, the dosage is not full integrated, showing an awkward final sweetness."
