Galloni, who tasted this nearly a year ago in May 2014, commented that it is “delicate, feminine and graceful” and related its potential development to the 2004 Blanc: “I will not be surprised if at some point it takes off given the extremely positive way in which the 2004 blanc has developed over the last few years.”
Jancis also sang its praises, describing it as “broadly fruity and deep flavoured” and notably likened it to a blanc: “This is a great wine that happens to be pink.”
The 2004 was a vintage without weather extremes. Problem-free vegetative growth, abundant, sizeable grape clusters and the dry heat of the final weeks of September led to a mature, healthy crop.
“We squeezed everything out of this vintage, we really worked hard on it” – Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave
