Only outstanding vintages are deemed worthy of a Grande Cuvée Alexandra Rosé. These exceptional years are eagerly awaited, yearned for…. Each harvest is closely monitored and gauged. Grape quality, sugar concentration, acidity, and potential for development are all scrupulously analysed and weighed in the balance by Michel Fauconnet. Grape varietals: Pinot Noir 80%, Chardonnay 20% from 100% Grand Cru vineyards. The selection of plots and vineyards for the grapes was extremely strict. Released from the cellars after ten years ageing.
An Alexandra Rosé Cuvée vintage is only created in years when the Grand Crus grapes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reach maturity at the same time. During the Pinot Noir maceration, 20% of Chardonnay is added. Only seven vintages have been released since its launch in 1987.
