Product Description

The first nose is already very expressive, with fruity (strawberry, pink grapefruit, quince) and spicy notes (pepper, cinnamon) at the forefront against a refined mineral background. When the wine is rotated, more gourmet aromas of fruit appear (griotte cherry and blackberry jam), interwoven with the flavour of brioche. The extraordinary aromatic complexity of this wine becomes even more intense when tasted. In the mouth, the wine reveals aromas of griotte cherry, grenadine, and crystallized backberry, highlighted by the presence of sweet spices (vanilla), endowing La Grande Dame Rosé 1998 with an exceptional smoothness. Due to the presence of Pinot Noir grapes, the wine's aromatic strength and impressive structure are balanced by a surprising freshness which is omnipresent from beginning to end. In fact, La Grande Dame Rosé 1998 offers us a "peacock's tail" of tastes, thanks to its long finish and wideranging aromatic palette.
