Poured from a 375 ml bottle, salmon/bronze color in the glass, medium amount of tiny bubbles which formed a lovely mousse, nose of raspberry, strawberry, Washington Delicious apple, and minerals, very floral nose, the same on the palate, delicious with left over meat pizza while watching the US Open Tennis today, medium/big body and a long, lingering finish.
Pink copper color, bubbles are med to small rising in an orderly pace. Nose of faint fruity jelly aroma. On palate, apart from the initial yeasty taste, red fruit such as strawberry surfaced, some pinot spice too, some minerality but acidity is rather subdued. Could be a good companion with food.
In the glass were tiny bubbles which formed a nice mousse, salmon color in the glass, nose of raspberry, strawberry, and a touch of slate, more of the same on the palate, my go to Rose, very tasty with dinner, from a 375 ml bottle, medium/big body and a long, lingering finish and aftertaste.
Oh I love this champagne. Melon and red berry burst out of the glass. On the palate? Wholly goodness. This is right in my wheelhouse. Good fruit, verve, depth, and all kinds of swagger. 93. thedrunkencyclist.com
A coppery-orange onion skin colour. Gentle mousse. A faint whiff of dark red fruit, but in essence a mature white with a bit of colour and a few bubbles. Vinous. Reasonable depth but lacks a bit of verve. ***
Davyd's Birthday Excuse for a celebration 2016 (Kallang Way Extra Space): Pop and poured. Appearance is clear, pale intensity, salmon-pink colour. Fine fizzy bubbles. Legs. Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of salty minerality, strawberries, red apples, biscuit. Youthful. On the palate, dry, crisp high acidity, medium alcohol (12%), medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of strawberry, red apples, salty minerality, and some biscuit. Medium+ finish. Very good quality Rosé Brut Champagne. Value for money. Doesn't require much thinking. just drink and enjoy.
Lots of tiny bubbles and nice mousse, nose of raspberry, cherry and strawberry, more of the same on the palate, a great palate cleanser, mouth filling, very tasty with the Seared Ahi Tuna at Flemings, a tasty way to start the dinner with a Holiday Toast, flavorful and long finish.
This disappointing wine barely resembles a rose champagne and, even setting that aside, just doesn't taste that good. Heavy, brownish red in color, few bubbles, with none of the fruit, energy, or charm I expect at this price point. Had a Domaine Carneros rose champagne that - at a fraction of the price - blew it away. Not worth the money.
Its a clear sparkling wine with pale intensity and salmon color. The bubbles are small and persistent.
On the nose its clean with medium minus intensity. Primary aromas of fruit and flowers. Raspberry, rose petal, red apple. Secondary autolytic aromas of yeast, brioche and lees. The wine is developing.
On the palate its off-dry with medium plus acidity, medium alcohol, medium body and medium plus flavor intensity. Primary flavors of fruit and flowers. Ripe lemon, raspberry, rose petals and red apple. Secondary flavors of autolytic character like yeast and brioche. The mousse is creamy and the finish is of medium length.
Wine of very good quality. Even though the acidity took over a bit at first when the wine was cold it has a complexity and typicity that i like but it lacks a bit of length.
Can drink now but has potential for ageing. The high acidity and the young fresh fruit will help this wine evolve for a long time.
(Disgorged spring of 2015) Salmon pink colour with a nice summer nose showing wild strawberries and nuts. Lovely intensive palate showing red currant and with a fruity and acidic raspberry finish. Perfect in the warm summer afternoon.
We have had a few of these now and with one exception, they have been fabulous. I have long stated that the Grande Reserve (the non-rosé version of this wine) is my favorite non-vintage Brut (since Krug does not count). Well, this wine is quickly becoming my favorite non-vintage rosé. Great flavors and balance, this bottle seemed to be a step below the last few we have had, but still Outstanding by any measure. thedrunkencyclist.com
Opened a 375ml bottle before dinner while making the salad course, lovely mousse thanks to the medium amount of tiny bubbles, metallic bronze color in the glass, red raspberry, strawberry and red cherry fruit on the nose, more of the same on the palate, mouth filling, much better/fresher bottle than 2 weeks ago, nice way to start dinner with a Holiday Toast in memory of our service men and women, with a rich, long, long, flavorful finish and terrific aftertaste.
(Degorged fall of 2014) Cupper red colour and with a nose showing bread and minerals and red berries. Delightful and creamy palate with a distinct taste of red berries and a nice austere finish. Best with 5-10 years of extra cellaring to get a really nice mature taste.
Metallic bronze color in the glass, medium amount of tiny bubbles, lively mousse, red raspberry and Chines Apple on the nose with hints of spring flowers and walnuts, more of the same on the palate, medium body, tasty, showing its age, this was a 375 ml bottle before dinner as I prepared the salad course, long, long finish and wonderful rich aftertaste.
Wine group dinner for Aniko at Yans China Bistro with Alex Yan doing the cooking. This bottle was the third champagne poured tonight and featured the new label after being in my cellar for only two years. Great contrast of flavors between the two bottles of Gosset. Salmon color in the glass, better mousse, more tiny bubbles than the previous bottle of Gosset. Nose of fresh strawberry fruit, touch of wet shale and yeast, more of the same on the palate, lots of baked fresh strawberry tart here, medium body, intense pinot flavors on the mid palate, long, flavorful finish.
Wine group dinner for Aniko at Yans China Bistro with Alex Yan doing the cooking. This bottle had been in the cellar for five years, showed a lovely bronze/salmon color in the glass with a nice mousse and some tiny bubbles, very fragrant nose of strawberry, pinot elements, and minerals, more of the same on the palate, medium body, lovely on the mid palate with lots of strawberry, long, long finish. This was the second bottle of champagne that evening. this was the old label pictured here on Cellartracker.
Wine Group Valentine's Day Dinner hosted by Aniko. Lots of strawberry/raspberry fruit on the nose, more of the same on the palate, lots of strawberry and red cherry fruit on the palate, bigger and bolder fruit and flavors when compared to the previous two champagnes, mouth filling, rich, long, flavorful finish and terrific aftertaste.
These were on sale at the PLCB for a ridiculous $37 so I bought a bunch of them. We took this one to a BYOB and it was a hit--great fruit and deep flavors, this is every bit as good as the Grande Réserve, my all-time favorite non-vintage. Outstanding. thedrunkencyclist.com
Wine Group New Year's Eve Dinner hosted by Aniko.Opened to pair with French Goat Cheese, very tiny bubbles formed a lovely mousse in the glass, lots of raspberry fruit, touch of yeast, with a hint of sweetness, more of the same on the palate, pinot flavors, subtle yet mouth filling creamy richness, very striking when compared to the Perrier Jouet, this is bigger, almost a meal in itself, long, flavorful finish and terrific aftertaste.
Opened to pair with French Goat Cheese, tiny bubbles and lovely mousse in the glass, lots of red cherry and raspberry fruit, touch of yeast, more of the same on the palate, touch of bacon bits, tasty with pinot flavors on the long finish and terrific aftertaste.
I bought three of these way back in 2008 and had the first one a just a month after buying them. It was less than stellar. I was so depressed I idid not try another until this week, six years later. Well, that turned out well--this was fantastic red berry fruit and a depth of secondary flavors that was remarkable. This is why I love champagne. thedrunkencyclist.com
Fine and profuse bubbles, great mousse, nose of raspberry/apple tart with a hint of yeast, more of the same on the palate, sweet/sour taste like grand cru red burgundy, medium body, lovely, long finish and aftertaste.
K&L Champagne Tasting-SF. Nose of raspberry, yeast, pear, and nectarine, more of the same on the palate, pinot flavors really stand out today, almost elegant, tasting bigger body than almost all the Rose Champagnes today, long, long finish.
Fine nose with toasty bread, raspberries, orange and red apples, with a nice and spicy perfume lingering over the glass. On the palate strawberries, blood orange, raspberries and apples, with a long finish displaying good acidity and fine minerallity. Very good Champagne, with good potential for development. 91+
Really glad I tasted it blind. Had heard good stuff about it for a long time, and it really lived up to my expectations. Big, multi layered nose. Lots of minerality, roasted coffee beans, granny smith apples, popcorn and yeast. Very high, focused acidity, with distinct tartness. Really good intensity and length. Even though it's young, there's a great balance in the wine. WOTN!
Opened to pair with the Goose Mousse Royal Pate, French Brie and water crackers, profuse tiny bubbles and fine mousse in the glass, lots of raspberry fruit, toast, wet shale, with hints of musk melon, more of the same on the palate, touch of bacon fat, tasty and rich on the mid palate with a long finish and terrific aftertaste that made you want more.
Consistent with previous notes, but grade goes up to 93. More of the rose-gold color now compare with the amber. Nose remains consistent- light flowers, peach and fruits, More on the dry side this time (as we like more), perhaps because we (a) made sure it remains chilled consistently, and (b) we gave it some decanting time. Long, consistent supply small bubbles in the glass, beautiful color, and taste. We finished almost the entire bottle. Can't believe I have only one bottle left. Will be drank well through 2019-20 as noted before. "Gossett, what a great champagne" (cited from a friend)
Day two- weaker bubbles in the evening (24 hours later) but tastes as good or even better (we each had 1/2 glass as a starter)
Postscript note: Had it four times since 2012 and it always delivers.
Opened to pair with the Goose Mousse Royal Pate, Goat Cheese, Grilled sockeye Salmon, and stuffed Portobello Mushroom Caps. Tiny bubbles, wonderful mousse, nose of sweet pinot fruit, raspberry tart, wet shale, and hints of spice box, more of the same on the palate, medium body, lovely, long finish.
Very pale strawberry in the glass. Lovely nose of honey, strawberries and butter. There was a slight grip of tannins which complemented the strawberries, brioche, biscuit and lemon palate. Decent length. Nice drop indeed.
Off the list at CUT, Las Vegas. Remarkably fresh and focused at the moment, with good promise to add some weight and depth if cellared properly, too. Given the very reasonable price-tag, I think it prudent to acquire several for personal consumption. Paired with CUT's Big Eye Tuna Tartare, Wasabi Aioli, Tosa Soy and avocado. And while the pairing was good, it wasn't great, but that's only because the execution of the Tuna Tartare was poor (the tuna looked like -overly- ground hamburger that had sat out at room temperature for an hour or more). recommended
This champagne is right up there with the greats. More amber than red in colour. Lovely toffee and caramel on the nose. Very creamy and buttery with a fine mousse on the palate. Excellent lasting complexity. A little sweet but easily forgiven.
Consistent with my previous notes. Consistent with previous grade. Very good return for the price category and Champagne Rose. Long long long bubbles. As noted before, too bad there is no video function on CT to see the length of the bubbles. I was told that even the following morning, the leftover was still bubbly.
I really like Gosset's Grand Rose. As usual elegance comes to mind with this champagne. Wonderful red fruits with flowers and a faint bit of spice, with great minerality and ample acidity. Always fun to drink this elegant rose.
Dark salmon color. Cherry citrus notes with some toast. On the palate the wine was creamy, with more citrus notes and cherries but the dosage may have been a bit on the high side as this felt quite sweet.
A fellow of mine says, "Gosset, what a great champagne" and I'd not dispute. Amber to rose-gold color, imho more on the amber side. On the nose- light flowers, peach and fruits. On the dry side, but a bit more lemon like. Finish medium to long, and the bubbles keep coming. Great match- some light spicy asian food, a semi sweet dessert, just by itself. Before a light fish Nice matches- cheese Overall, yummi. Wish there was an attach a video function to the tasting notes. It's nearing two hours since we opened the bottle and the bubbles remain so nice, long and consistent. Drinking window: Can't give any reasonable explanation for the fact that previous users have given it such a short window (that actually passed already). Drink through 2019-20
Edited Jan-17-2014 ---> Voted with the wallet, and got few more of those. So we'd enjoy it for few more years given good health :-)
Lovely nose of rose petals, minerals, and raspberry fruit, more of the same on the palate, medium body, very rich, tasty, and mouth filling, much bigger body and more complex than the Schramsberg served previously, medium/long finish, nice mousse, tiny bubbles.
Lovely nose of roses, minerals, and raspberry fruit, more of the same on the palate, medium body, rich and mouth filling, medium/long finish, nice mousse, tiny bubbles, from a 375 ml served with cold pre cooked shrimp and sauce.
Elegant floral nose, but also a bit of yeasty bread dough that dissipated after a few minutes. The elegance continued with the taste: a lovely, gentle balance of raspberry, apple, and rose water. Acidity was fairly low.
Trialto Old World Classics Tasting: Pours very pale and light. Initial funky almost garlicky nose quickly blows off to reveal fresh baked strawberry tart, marzipan, strawberry yogurt, and confectioners sugar. Palate is fairly rich and round leading to perhaps slightly lower perceived acid. Finish is fairly long carried on biscuit and confectioners sugar.
Lovely medium bodied rose champagne, just so well balanced, no overtly tart notes found in cheaper wines, just gorgeous pinot notes of strawberry and brioche. Very complex as the fruit kept changing over time from bright to more compote notes coupled with some preserved fruit at the end.
Beautiful nose of yeast, bread, red fruit. Nice tiny bubbles racing to the top. Golden bronze color with wonderful balance on the palate with bright acidity solid dryness but not too dry and wonderful tropical fruit
First time we opened a bottle of Gosset Rose with the new packaging at Flemings to start our Mother's Day Brunch. Lots of medium and fine bubbles in the glass with a lovely and strong mousse, very rich pinot flavors with hints of sweet fried bacon on the nose, the flavors exploded on the palate, medium/big body, medium/long finish with nice acid for balance.
Very pale salmon pink in the glass. Nose appeared muted initially but soon revealed strawberries, yeast and intrusive notes. Dry, elegant and quite balanced. There were strawberries, brioche and minerals on the palate with a long length.
The wine was served too cold initially and we thought it might have been spoilt. Much better once it warmed up a little.
- Small pearls and aromas of strawberry and baker's yeast. It's balanced and has flavours of strawberry with a medium body. Satin-Like texture with a medium finish - Really lovely bottle. Light strawberry in the nose and in the mouth. The bead was the finest I've ever experienced, so light there was almost no 'tickle'. Beautiful for Valentines Day.
Trialo Champagne Tasting 2012 (Trialto Office): Lean, Delicate light red/peach fruit, with a ton of acidity [high], good balance, Rose Skin contact flavour present. Also some high tone fruit, starts to open up with some hints of Pinot fruit
Orangish pink color. Notes of stone, mineral, rose petal, watermelon and red berry. Fine bead, with flavors of berries, florals and mineral. Finishes well, with Ed fruit notes dominating. L841 6101- an older disgorgement I believe. Drink now-2015.
Previous notes apply. However, I want to emphasise two points that may or may not mean anything to some of you. First, Using a more 'full' glass in size seems to really bring out the flavors and nuances in the wine. Second, I believe we serve certain champagne, sparkling wine and prosecco's, etc. way too cold. This wine yesterday was too cold and today at a lower temperature is just exquisite. Deep rich rose flavors with great balance and acidity. Not too over the top minerality and a sophistication that belies the cost of this rose. The lower temperature is the way to go with this wine. Brioche, and apricots with cherries is my best description. Very full creamy mouth feel. Nice acidity on the palate.
A light yellowy orange. Good stream of reasonably small bubbles. Reasonably clean and neutral on the nose, some red fruit but certainly not of the freshly cut strawberry variety. On the palate I'm not sure I'd pick it as a rose - more like a white. Off a restaurant list so probably quite young. Doesn't wow me like mature grande reserve, but decent enough. ***
Opened at wine shop so no specific note but one. When moving to a rose with many producers the rose tastes like a completely different wine than the regular brut. Sometimes you can't even tell its made by the same producer. The beauty of this wine for me is that it is distinctively Gosset brut but with the addition of the rose elements making an excellent champagne. While it is not at the level of some of the other rose's, i.e. Pol Roger it can hold its own and is quite beautiful. Glad I bought it. Creamy, mousse, with raspberries, yeast, bisquit, excellent.
Perhaps the best Rose Champagne I have ever tasted. I cannot say enough good things about this wine. Yeasty and toasty, with fantastic acidity, and wonderful notes of strawberries, apples, pears. You simply are saddened when this bottle is gone. This non-vintage Champagne blows away most vintage champagnes I have tasted.
Oh, boy. Had this cellared for 4-5 years. Now golden copper red, deep color. Great nose, and just stunnig. Sorry about lack of detail. Took cellaring in a grat way. Well developed taste and mouthfeel. Deep notes of red berries and almost clementine. Outstanding champagne, Sunday bliss.
Last of my 375mls, and boy was I sad to see this go. At this went out with a bang and not a simper. Consistently good as always, completely at ease with a table full of flavourful Chinese food, this gave a lot of pleasure. It had a lovely fresh nose, with fresh scents of red berries and strawberries, a squeeze of lemon, fresh cut flowers and a gentle wash of earthy, stony mineral. The palate was beautifully balanced as always, with zippy but really well integrated acidity and a creamy mousse forming a fresh, yummy backdrop for a nice mix of strawberries and lemon notes. This time though, there was an added depth, with hints of white meat and flecks of mineral on the midpalate and stretching into the finish, perhaps reflecting the bit of extra bottle age that this last bottle had gained. This was a lovely Champagne, perhaps just marred with a tiny bit of heat at the edges. Otherwise, really nice. A beautiful pairing with fried prawns in sweet black soy sauce as well.
Had this at Volt on the Som's reccomendation after the first bottle I selected was out. Impressive showing with a light pink/copper color. Nose of red raspberry, a little mushroom, and yeast showing. Nose was mostly red berries, with a little earth, and yeast. Good amount of acidity present in the wine as well as a good amount of fruit. Decent value as well for its retail tag.
Pale pink, slightly brownish in colour. Smell is generous, dominated by roasted almonds and bread. The taste is smooth, mature and lots of roasted almonds. This wasn't my type of champagne, way too much nutty. I can feel quality, but at this price I think it's overpriced.
Upplevede den mindre komplex än tidigare, mer röda bär, mer frukt, lite ”enklare” och mer lättillgänglig. Perfekt sommarskumpa men har tappat en del sedan tidigare. Vet inte om de kortat tiden på jäst eller gjort något annat men inte den Gosset jag är van vid.
Wines of Champagne (Farpointe Cellar): A little jammy on the nose, the main fruit was strawberry, but it also had a bit of yeast and some floral notes. Jammy and floral on the palate, the strawberry and violets really shined. Underneath that was some bread and spice.
Saturdays at One - Volume 40: Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Salmon to pink color in the glass, clear looking throughout with tiny and steady beading. Nose of mushroom, raspberries and a hint of cherry. Flavors of raspberries and cherries. Bright acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold. 90-?
The best tasted yet! This paired extremely well with fresh fatty fish sushi. Still reminding me of the 85 ponsardin tt I will never forget. This is as serious and minerally complex with a tinge of it's strawberry funness! Delish!
From one of the last two 375ml bottles I bought a year back; shared this with Alex H over a birthday treat. This was very good - it has certainly put on weight and complexity over time, and this was the best showing so far. Some secondary scents of savoury white meat were starting to show, along with dried floral accents and nice tones of cherries and strawberries. The palate showed a nice textured weight, with rich red cherries carried on lovely frothy mousse and some lip-smacking freshness. Like the nose, the mid-palate had also started taking on some savoury depth to go alongside more citrusy notes and little sprigs of herb right at the very tail. While fresh fruit was still clearly at the fore in the previous two bottles, they have clearly started sharing the limelight with more secondary flavours. I hope to keep on to the last bottle for some time yet - I can only see this improving as time goes by. Special mention goes to the wine's fantastic ability to pair with all sorts of aburi Sushi we had over lunch, almost mind-blowingly so with certain fish like the Yellowjack, the Otoro and the seared Salmon Belly.
K&L Champagne Tasting. Nose of raspberry/apple tart with a hint of yeast, more of the same on the palate, lovely, my favorite rose by far for the price, long finish and aftertaste. Tasted 6 times today!!!
Intense fruit like in a cherry tart, or rhubarb pie with a touch of strawberry; super fine, creamy, very frothy mouth and drying tannins. Excellent, forward, and rich rose to drink through the meal. Maybe even 93.
This is getting better every day. Complex layered aged serious champagne. A bit of stinky egg but lots of macerated rose petals, strawberries and long lasting mouthfeel. Mineral and almost rustic and backward.
Shared a 375ml with Elsa over dinner at Gourmet Plus. Lovely Rosé, paired well with a whole variety of food - especially our roasted korubuta pork shoulder. Nice, rather serious nose, with quite a bit of yeast, tons of mineral, gravel bits, all on a bed of fresh blue berries, blackberries and raspberry ripple. There was a whiff of creme fraiche and a light floral lift at the end, and just that tiny dash of umami. Very nice. Palate was not quite as developed as the nose, but showed great balance and poise, with refreshing berry fruit and sweet strawberries piereced through with very serious minerality - slightly ferrous, very stoney, very nice. Finish was just a little lacking in length, withdrawing with a nice minerally linger and a touch of sweet orangey fruit. Otherwise, a lovely bright rose, with plenty of sophisticated character.
Nose of roses and smelly egg. Reminded me a bit of the excellent aged 85 ponsardin rose I had . Just a shade of that grandeaur though. This is but still a very much afternoon / pre dinner apperitif bubbly that brings out all the right mood. Well done on the dryness that is pseudo sweet with strawberry skins but alternates back to the mineral cold stone dryness. I did enjoy this.
From a 375ml. An excellent NV Rosé. Lovely salmon pink. Obviously with a little bottle-age, bubbles have gone down and secondary characteristics were just about emerging. On the nose, gentle strawberries, cherries, some minerally earthiness and touch of yeast. Subtle and classy. Same could be said of the palate. Not much bubbles, but it had a fizzy palate-cleansing mousse and fresh, nicely integrated acidity that gave a lovely mouthfeel. Beautiful flavours too - gentle minerality, light cherry tones and dusty earth. Lots of refinement here, with a gorgeous balance that made it absolutely food friendly. Finish had some sappy fruit and a deliciously dry backbone, before opening up into an impressively lengthy tail that had a kiss of dusky strawberries and a linger of spice. Very good indeed.
Pale pink. Small bubbles, rather few. Yellow ripe apples, rasberry, hint of bread, some cream and nut or almond. Dry, fresh, rasberry, red grapefruit and apples. Big volume and also finess. Storage obvious. €45 (Swe)
Clear pale salmon core with a small steady stream of fine bubbles. Clean nose of crushed strawberries with some slight mustiness along with a bit of candy apple after swirling. Dry with moderate intensity on the palate. High in acid and slightly astringent. Berry jam on the palate. Moderate + length finish with a bit of strawberries and cream - gets better with each sip.
Orange/salmon color. Aromas of strawberries and bread dough. Fine but faint mousse. Nicely extracted fruit in the mouth with surprising depth and excellent structure. More powerful than elegant. This magnum was purchased in March of 2003 so I am afraid it was just a touch past its peak.
Very stingy on the nose. It does give off a little unripe strawberry skins. Nice pinkish red and definitely very good on the bubbles (small, round and longlasting) and length. Slight yeastiness but not blowing me away.
Not sure what others paid for this bottle, but I feel that the lower tier wines from Gosset hold a far superior value. This was a nice wine, but rather disappointing overall. Holds a salmon colour with a hint of copper. The nose is of light red berries and a touch floral. The palate is decent with more red berries, nice acidity, and a touch of chalkiness. Not bad, but wouldn't purchase again.
Beautiful copper color, fine bead that turned flat with time. Chalky nose turning generous and fruity on the palate. Turned a bit more vegetal as it aired and warmed. Notes of celery on the short finish. Obviously on the decline, but still the quality shows through. This bottle was purchased at least six years ago.
I am a huge fan of the Grande Reserve, but I had never had the rose, so I was very excited. This is a nice wine, but I was disappointed. Strawberry dominates on the nose, but did not pick up much else. High acidity--quite tart in the mouth, none of the biscuity, brioche like flavors of the GR. I will give the other bottles a little time and maybe they will calm down a bit.
Light salmon color. Nose of bread dough, yeast, lemon and tart wild red berries. Some minerality. On the palate, fine bubbles and wild strawberries; some dry tannins on the back end lead me to believe this would keep awhile. Opened up after an hour or two in the glass.
Incredible. The nose is rich but transcendent. Hints of strawberry, apple blossom, orchard fruits complement the biscuit and toast. The palate is rich and full, with delicious biscuity fruit. Wonderful finish. Worth the money.
Learn about Wine: Pink salmon; low nose, but clearly now lacking citrus (chard) notes, w/subtle straberry & lite whipped cream; tons of bubbles, cooked berry on pie tin taste. Yummy, riche, strawberry rose.
No formal note (shared a bottle in a restaurant). Very impressive. This has a bread / toast element adding complexity to the in-no-way-candied red fruit. I love this style of Rose. I need to try another bottle when I can take more time and pay more attention to it...
