2009 Domaine Anne & Arnaud Goisot Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre Rosé

SKU #1071897

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, with a most engaging Pinot character due to the riper vintage. BRAVO! Only K&L's Direct Import makes this price possible. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 03/11)

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.

That's crispy, full flavor, 100% Pinot Noir rosé. Very nice not only for the aperitifs but with the main dish as well. Sometimes a rosé in winter is just what we need to put some color back in our lives.

Rose that is not fooling around one bit. It has been a pleasure to drink the whole line up of the Goisot wines. This Rose is dense, plucky and very well made.

This is no "foufou", fruit forward rose here. I find this burgundy rose masculine, in a crisp, no non-sense way, Very elegant and balanced. It's probably one of the few rose that could be drunk as an apperitif and during dinner with food.

An absolutely delightful rose with pleasantly surprising levels of complexity. Multiple aromas are present, ranging from flint to mango to watermelon to jasmine. Pleasant strawberry sweetness lies at the front of the palate, giving way to soft, pink-grapefruit acidity and a surprising level of tannin in the finish. Everything is subtle and restrained, but the presence of those tannins - significantly mellowed at 2.5 years - elevates a sparse, austere wine into something truly fascinating. An absolutely gorgeous wine.

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.
