Tasting notes

A brillant color:

A delicate bouquet:

  • Grand Vintage Rosé 2008 is a floral and fruity wine with floral notes of rose and hawthorn, with botanical nuances of boxwood and lime zest followed by fruity, fresh notes of raspberry, cherry and blood orange.

A forthright precise palate

  • On the palate, the first impression is one of succulence and fullness, with notes of more mature fruits like strawberries and blackcurrants. Subsequently, the wine extends itself, underlain by a delicate, finely-wrought structure and taut acidity. The finish is invigorating, with a persistent note of grapefruit. Overall, the flavor profile is straightforward and precise.
