Boizel Joyau de France Rosé 2004

Cuvee: Rosé, Vintage
Vintage: 2004
The Joyau de France special cuvée, in its rosée version. A subtle balance between delicacy and intensity. Only the vins clairs that best express the elegance and richness of the year 2004 are selected: Grand and Premier Crus of Pinot Noir (Mailly, Vertus , Cumières) and Chardonnay (Oger, Avize, Vertus) as well as, for the red wine, Pinot noir from les Riceys. After 8 years of slow aging in the cellars, the dosage of Joyau de France Rosé 2004 is minimal at 4.5 gr/l, to best preserve its purity and highlight its extreme finesse and aromatic complexity.

The blend
36% Chardonnay | 64 % Pinot noir of which 10 % vinified as red wine. Grand and Premier Crus. Dosage: 4,5 gr/l

Tasting notes
Eye: The robe is very bright, light pink with copper reflections, underlined by fine and lively bubbles

Nose: The bouquet is elegant, at first discreet, slowly opening with delicate notes of fresh wild strawberries and blackcurrant, evolving towards more intense honeyed aromas of acacia flowers with hints of rhubarb and sweet spices (cinnamon).

Mouth: On the palate this wine shows a subtle balance between complexity and freshness. Its structure is ample with soft tannins and a silky texture. It then reveals flavours of morello cherries, cassis and fresh almonds. The slightly minty final strengthens the aerial impression
