2008 Domaine Anne & Arnaud Goisot Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre Rosé

SKU #1056760

This is an absolute delight. Since this area is a cool one, the rosés are not an afterthought, but often the first thought for their pinot grapes, and this wine is proof of that fact. Made of 100% pinot noir, it has a beautiful light rose color, a strawberry nose, and is light, mineral-driven, refreshing and charming. Only K&L's Direct Import makes this price possible.

I enjoyed every single wine from the Goisot’s. This rose made from all Pinot Noir is one of the best value roses of the year. The nose is all fresh strawberry and cherry aromas which carry through on the palate a deceptive richer mid-palate but finishing very crisp and clean with lingering cherry aromas. This wine is almost gone so don’t miss out!

Time to get your PINK on! That's right, it's summer and it's finally getting hot here in LA. Time to bust out the rose baby. This one is delish. Bright up front fruits, medium body and a crisp clean finish. Don't hang by the pool without it.

This is more Pinot pleasure than $12 ought to buy. The Anne Arnauld Goisot Rose is wonderfully complete, with depth that will surprise those who believe that a wine has to be dark to have bass notes. That being said, this is real rose, not light red wine, and has snap and refreshment playing counterpoint to its round mid palate. This Cotes d'Auxerre Rose is going to be a permanent resident in the Westby fridge door this summer!

Is there any wine these folks make that is not delicious and so gulpable? Fresh, a tad citric and some red berry fruit. Fine rosé for the season.

Brisk, fresh, and lively, this rose is one of my favorites so far. Delicate strawberry aromas are underscored by spicy accents in the nose, and there is a textural quality to the midpalate that makes this wine more memorable than your average pink quaffer. A great food rose that does not sacrifice brightness or acidity for substance.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
