A tasting of Alexandra Rose Millesime is one of those all-too-rare moments – a unique sensory experience. A delicate ring of bubbles circles the inside of the glass, enlivened by a fine, persistent stream of bubbles. The color register is anything but the usual shade of redcurrant or raspberry. Instead, what you see illuminating the lead-crystal glass is a diaphanous amber-pink.

The nose of deliciously satisfying aromas of candied citrus is amplified on the palate. Next, a strong sensation of minerality structures the palate and the wine releases its tensions to deliver a succession of taste sensations. The range is wide, moving from the smoothly spicy to hints of metal, tangy fruit, and dried rose petals. But despite the obvious complexity, the senses never lose their way in this uniquely pleasurable experience.

Alexandra Rosé Millésimé surrenders up its singular personality, which is simultaneously masculine in its intensity and its powerful structure, and feminine in the infinite delicacy of its color and taste sensations. The experience is unforgettable.
