  • A super bright, crisp-fruited nose of red cherry, watermelon, mirabelle, iodine and an amaro hint. On the palate has good volume and really the mouthfeel is markedly nice. The flavor profile is a super harmonious blend of red fruits and a citrusy nuance. Firm and textured with great acidity. The 13.5% ABV shows a bit but overall this is still refreshing and very drinkable. The style here is savory with nice tightness to it. Really good.

  • A blend of Pinot Noir with a tiny bit of Pinot Beurot (aka. Pinot Gris) from three of his best vineyards, planted in 1932, 1934 and 1949. Part of the grapes are pressed directly, another part macerated with the skins for 36 to 48 hours. Fermented spontaneously, aged for two years in old oak barrels. 13,5% alcohol.

    Slightly hazy rose hip color; not really pink, not red nor orange - somewhere in-between. The fragrant, expressive nose feels very sweet-toned yet somewhat Burgundian with aromas of strawberries, some juicy cherries, a little bit of leathery funk, light zesty chinotto notes of Campari, a hint of cooked rose hips, a touch of ripe melon and a whiff of apple jam. The wine feels very ripe and somewhat sweet-toned yet at the same time quite savory on the palate with a rather full body and intense flavors of strawberries and raspberry jam, some stony mineral tones, light lifted nuances of VA, a little bit of spicy Pinosity, a hint of leathery funk and a touch of bright, zesty citrus character. The overall feel is quite substantial and not delicate in any way, having a subtly viscous texture as well, but thanks to the surprisingly brisk acidity, the wine packs quite impressive freshness and sense of structure. The finish is juicy, long and slightly sweet-toned with a ripe and quite intense aftertaste of strawberries, some stony mineral tones, a little bit of savory spice, light lifted nuances of VA, sweet hints of cherry marmalade and apple sauce and a faint touch of leathery funk.

    A very intense, complex and even subtly sauvage Marsannay Rosé that is really packed with power and substance. However, even if the wine is rather ripe, it doesn't really come across as heavy or ponderous in any way. Sure, it is big, but not without a wonderful sense of freshness and a firm structure. Terrific stuff with lots of things going on. This is really an exceptional all-rounder: with its great structure, it is easy to pair the wine with a wide variety of dishes; with its good sense of freshness, this is a wonderfully smashable rosé on a hot summer's day; and with its impressive complexity and depth of flavor, the wine can easily be enjoyed on its own as a meditation wine. However, the overall feel is still pretty youthful and I get a feel that the wine is a bit all over the place at the moment, so most likely this wine will continue to evolve and improve with further age. Great now, but expect the score to slowly go up over the next five years or more. Not the most affordable rosé out there at 49€, but arguably manages to deliver for the money. Recommended.

  • Fantastic rose, which is close to a light red. Immediately recognizable as a Pinot noir. Complex nose with tomatoes, vanilla and cinnamon. Quite some acidity.
