95pts Wine Enthusiast

First produced in the 1987 vintage to celebrate the marriage of owner Bernard de Nonancourt's eldest daughter, this bottling is now mature. Ripe, it still retains plenty of red fruits while also allowing the toasty character to show through. It's a rosé that calls for food, a rich and balanced wine that is just perfect to drink now

94pts Wine & Spirits

Michel Fauconnet macerates pinot noir and chardonnay together (an 80-20 blend), allowing the color of pinot’s skins to tint the wine, while the chardonnay skins add to the wine’s structure, tightening the red fruit in a delicate tannic vise. There’s a wild mushroom savor to the wine, a gamey, woodland note and a minty crispness. Youthfully brash, then nuanced and satisfying, this is substantial enough for the dark meat of roast game birds.

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Based on synced-fermented 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from company-owned grand cru vineyards, the salmon-pink colored 2004 Alexandra Grande Cuvée Rosé displays a very subtle and fresh bouquet of great elegance and purity. Intense and complex on the palate, this is a very dry, fresh and tension-filled Rosé full of energy and delicacy. Very elegant and still a bit limey, but a great Champagne.

93pts Wine Spectator

Rich and creamy, showing candied kumquat and dried apricot flavors married to the lively bead and acidity, with accents of pastry, marzipan, coconut and spice. Drink now through 2029.

Winemaker Notes

A tasting of Alexandra Rose Millesime is one of those all-too-rare moments – a unique sensory experience. A delicate ring of bubbles circles the inside of the glass, enlivened by a fine, persistent stream of bubbles. The color register is anything but the usual shade of redcurrant or raspberry. Instead, what you see illuminating the lead-crystal glass is a diaphanous amber-pink.

The nose of deliciously satisfying aromas of candied citrus is amplified on the palate. Next, a strong sensation of minerality structures the palate and the wine releases its tensions to deliver a succession of taste sensations. The range is wide, moving from the smoothly spicy to hints of metal, tangy fruit, and dried rose petals. But despite the obvious complexity, the senses never lose their way in this uniquely pleasurable experience.

 

Alexandra Rosé Millésimé surrenders up its singular personality, which is simultaneously masculine in its intensity and its powerful structure, and feminine in the infinite delicacy of its color and taste sensations. The experience is unforgettable.
