Assembly

The birth of an exceptional, precise and complex wine

La Grande Année Rosé 2014 is an assembly of 19 crus, mostly in Aÿ and Verzenay for Pinot Noir and Chouilly and Oiry for the Chardonnay. We add 5% red wine from the Côte aux Enfants plot.

Fermentation takes place entirely in oak barrels. It is cellar aged, sealed with a natural cork, for over twice as long as required by appellation. The dosage is moderate, 8 grams per litre.

Sensations

The 2014 vintage, the fruit of a year full of contrast

A rainy autumn and winter were followed by two very dry and sunny months, then summer – and particularly August – saw markedly cold weather. Despite these conditions, the musts had a wonderful balance of maturity and acidity, giving rise to an intense and multifaceted La Grande Année Rosé 2014 vintage. Tasting reveals the gradual way in which the different aromas come into play.

To the eye

An appearance with pinkish glints.

To the nose

A real mosaic of fruit: aromas of raspberry, wild strawberries, cherries, etc. Notes of peach and quince complete this fruity bouquet.

On the palate

This wine is characterised by its creamy effervescence, splendid volume in the mouth and long aromatic persistence. Its wonderful acidity and sea-air characteristics appear alongside flavours of orchard fruits and berries.
