Press & Reviews
(all Ay fruit and all from 2009; aged on its lees for two years and disgorged in January, 2013): Pale orange. Sexy, smoke-tinged aromas of raspberry, orange zest and potpourri. Silky in texture and impressively pure, offering sappy red berry and brioche flavors and suave floral pastille and spicecake accents. Gains weight with air and picks up a bitter cherry quality that carries through the impressively long, spicy finish. The blend of richness and vivacity here is striking.
The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is round, expressive and nicely layered. Crushed raspberries, dried flowers, spices and mint are all woven together in the glass. Overall, this is a soft, floral Rosé best suited to near-term drinking. The Rosé has often been my favorite wine in the Goutorbe lineup. This is another strong showing. The Rosé is 51% Pinot Noir, 14% still Pinot and 35% Chardonnay. This bottle was disgorged in January 2013.
