Vintage 2004

The exceptionally fine weather conditions in September allowed the abundant crop of grapes to ripen beautifully. So between 23 September and 13 October, we harvested some very fine grapes in excellent conditions of health. The Pinot Noir wines are fruity and full-bodied; the Chardonnay wines show a lot of distinction, and the Pinots Meunier wines add a touch of gourmandise.

Vintage 2004 Rosé

The Vintage Rosé 2004 offers a deep pink colour with highlights of copper and delicate, light effervescence. The nose, extremely elegant, at first reveals flavours of ripe red fruits that burst on the tongue, before gradually giving way to violets, lilacs and light "pastry" notes. A discreet touch of ground coffee can also be distinguished. The attack is forthright and energetic.
This generous wine offers an astonishingly long and subtle finish. It is extremely complex and is distinguished by great freshness. On the palate, strong notes of fruit recall the refined nose. The finish is surprising in its persistence.

Gilbert & Gaillard - April - 2012

Vintage 2004. “Pale lemon colour. Fine nose with pastry aromas as well as fruit and a touch of almond. On the palate there is appealing finesse, with melting and fresh notes. A delicate 2004 which leaves behind an ethereal sensation."

Vintage 2004. "One of the best vintages since the great 2002, this is a sophisticated, fruit- and yeast- driven wine. It has a delicate touch, with its white fruit flavors well integrated into the toasty and tangy texture. It will age for many more years."

Vintage Rosé 2004. "Attractive copper colour, bright apricot tart and clafoutis notes on the nose, with an extremely ripe and juicy fruit on the palate giving it a full body. Dive in!"

Wine spectator - December 2012

Vintage Rosé 2004. "Soft and creamy, the fine texture carries flavors of black currant and wild strawberry, with hints of financier, citrus zest and smoky mineral. Very appealing for its overall finesse and finely tuned, mouthwatering acidity. Drink now through 2024.”
