Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2004 Brut Rose Extra Cuvee de Reserve is quite fruity and vinous at first but then the minerality kicks in, giving the wine its energy and sense of focus. Crushed flowers, spices and mint unfold in the glass, adding complexity and nuance. Overall, this is a fairly delicate, feminine style of Rose that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or alongside a meal. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

A vinous version, structured by fine acidity, with a creamy bead to the texture and a base note of minerality. Offers a full range of ripe black cherry and black currant, piecrust, pomegranate and smoke flavors. Drink now through 2027.

A discreetly fruity nose offers up cool and agreeably fresh notes of raspberry and strawberry. The mousse is quite generous, indeed foamy is not over the top to describe the sensation on the mid-palate yet the clean, pure and crisp finish is decidedly refreshing. This moderately dry effort is not the most complex vintage-dated rosé on the market but I very much like the style.

Light, bright orange. Intense, spice-accented aromas of candied orange, redcurrant and fresh flowers, with sneaky mineral and leesy notes. Supple and expansive, offering vibrant citrus fruit and red berry flavors with complicating notes of cinnamon and pear skin. Finishes silky and long, with resonating spiciness and excellent clarity.
