On the palate the wine is pure, full and complex, with a lovely core, superb mineral drive, refined, frothy mousse and a very long, very elegant finish. There is a touch of oak influence here on both the nose and palate, but it is quite understated and beautifully integrated. This is a blend of seventy-eight percent pinot noir and twenty-two percent chardonnay. It is from the base year of 2007, with forty percent of the cuvée comprised of reserve wines and it was finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. Absolutely first class Rosé!

Long and rich on the lingering, satiny finish.

93+ Exactly the same base wine as the MV10 but blended before bottling with 8% red Pinot Noir from an 64-year-old vineyard in Aÿ that gives very tiny, juicy and structured grapes, Giraud's NV Aÿ Grand Cru Fût de Chêne...   93+ Exactly the same base wine as the MV10 but blended before bottling with 8% red Pinot Noir from an 64-year-old vineyard in Aÿ that gives very tiny, juicy and structured grapes, Giraud's NV Aÿ Grand Cru Fût de Chêne Brut MV Rosé has a lovely orange-pink color and opens to a slightly reductive bouquet initially, but then becomes pure and very delicate yet intense, wiht red fruits, red wine and floral aromas. On the palate, this is a medium-bodied yet concentrated, fresh and well-structured Rosé with purity, finesse and mineral length. It has matured fruit flavors in the persistent aftertaste, representing a good portion of reserve wines that add a final layer of complexity. Aged for seven years on yeast on the bottle the wine is pretty vinous, and its initially slightly oaky taste and grip needs a big fat fish. 4.500 bottles produced. Tasted April 2018. - SR
