Harvest Notes

The 2006 vintage was distinguished by an unusually dry and sunny June and July, promoting excellent flowering and good, steady ripening. August was rainy and humid, threatening the early-summer promise with fears of mildew and botrytis. But September brought more sun and heat, and harvest unfolded between the 14 and 29 of September, allowing for an abundant yield of superb quality.

Tasting Notes

La Grande Dame Rosé combines an extraordinary aromatic complexity of intense, powerful and noble notes with a full-bodied and exceptionally smooth and long finish. The initial note reveals a saline, mineral background, followed by notes of red fruits including Morello cherry, wild strawberry, and red currant, finished with toasted notes of hazelnut, cocoa bean, and sweet spices.

In the mouth, it is plump and full of substance. The texture is crisp and silky. The tannins are still present, calling for a cuisine with texture to bring out the best in this wine. The tannins already very well integrated and can be excpeted to blend in still further over the coming years. The finish is long and coasts the palate.
