The latest release of Giraud's NV Brut Rosé Dame-Jane is showing very well, unfurling from the glass with complex aromas of red plums, cinnamon, orange zest, warm bran and smoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and textural, with all the house's signature vinosity, displaying superb depth at the core, ripe but racy acids and beautiful balance despite its muscular, textural style, concluding with a sapid finish. This is another success.

The NV Rosé Dame Jane, based on 2013, is powerful, rich and savory. Small red fruits, sage, mint and rose petal add character to this persistent, beautifully nuanced Rosé from Henri Giraud. The 40% reserve wines work well to give added layers of depth and resonance to a blend of 80% Pinot Noir (including 6% still red Pinot) and 20% Chardonnay. Disgorged: November 3, 2017.
