Description

96 Points James Suckling
A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosé develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It’s gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too – a gastronomic dream! The palate’s smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosé.

95 Points Decanter
Radiant, star-bright ruby with vermilion highlights. Burgundian scents of the forest, with fraises des bois, undergrowth and even redcurrant. A silky, captivating mouthfeel, the palate cloaking without being heavy. The expression of a warm, later harvest, and the rosé is more distinguished and elegant than the blanc in 2005.
