The Rosť Reserve 1995 has an attractive rosy tint with deep gold-bronze reflections.
Effervescence is lively and persistent.
The wine is very expressive on the nose, with notes of red fruits (fresh strawberries, cherries) followed by notes of minerals and violets. This expresses perfectly all the graciousness of the Pinot Noir.
In the mouth the attack, in complete harmony with the nose, is energetic and open with strong notes of subtly crisp fruits - wild cherries, redcurrants, pomegranates. Although not yet fully developed, the impression of fullness and volume at the finish makes us think that this wine will mature magnificently.
The Rosť Reserve 1995 is excellent with poultry and in two or three years' time will be the perfect accompaniment for pink meats, such as veal and lamb. A more mature wine will be needed to complement game dishes
Tightly wound and reticent today, this full-bodied rosť exhibits floral and berry flavors on a muscular structure. Rich enough for the dinner table, it needs some time to develop. Lovely lingering finish. Best from 2001 through 2004.
