Tasting Notes

All 2012, and the BEST VINTAGE EVER FOR THIS WINE. Deg 2/2015, 100% PN, the right dosage, and OK wow, back in town! Someone said hibiscus flower. Both serious and a riot of fun. I suggest you jump on it and start twerking. —Terry Theise

A hint of malt adds a rich layer to the flavors of ripe fruit—black cherry, berries, grilled plum, whole-grain toast and smoke—all set on a refined texture. An elegant, flavorful rosé, with lovely, fine-tuned acidity. Disgorged April 2011. Drink now through 2018. 302 cases imported. –AN

(all 2010 wine from Cumieres; disgorged in February, 2013 after 30 months on its lees): Light, bright pink. Spicy red berries, potpourri and smoky minerals on the highly perfumed nose. The palate offers sappy raspberry and musky cherry pit flavors that show a refreshingly bitter edge. The spicy quality comes back on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and focus.

Review:
An exuberantly fruity nose of
strawberry, raspberry and cherry leads to utterly delicious, intense and well-detailed flavors that are supported by a moderately
firm mousse that possesses a relatively fine bead, particularly for a rosé, all wrapped in a clean and agreeably dry finish that
exudes a subtle saline character. This is really lovely as it’s both bracing and refreshing plus it displays fine depth. This could
be enjoyed now or held for a few years first.

Review:
The NV Brut Rosé de Saignée is a bit more delicate and forward in its bouquet than the Blanc de Rose. Here the flavors are of course much more Pinot-inflected, with hints of earthiness, sweet tobacco and dried flowers that caress the palate. I especially like the way the Rosé de Saignée blossoms on the mid-palate and finish. Today, the Rosé de Saignée is a bit more accessible than the Blanc de Rose, but also slightly more forward as well. This bottle was disgorged in February 2013.
