Clos des Goisses, Juste Rosé, 2008

Tasting Note:

The last Juste Rosé to see the addition of still red wine (from the Clos) rather than a saignée, this bears all the hallmarks of greatness. The steel of 2008 is visible on a finish that stretches away to a distant vanishing point, before which notes of damask rose, exotic spice and wild red berries tantalise the senses. This is very much a rose, the addition of beautiful red fruit seamlessly woven into the power and nerve of a very great and ageworthy vintage of Clos des Goisses. A blend of 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir, with the addition of 6-7% still red wine from the highest plots in the Clos. Disgorged March 2019.
