Peter Bourne: "The Grand-Pere is the first foray into reserve wines by Rosnay. The label pays homage to Sam Statham's great grandfather, Alberic Francois Dulong de Rosnay. Sourced from the Rosnay organic vineyard from the warm 2013 vintage, winemakers Chris Derez and Lucy Maddox added extra pressings material to give more punch to the wine. A dense bouquet of black fruits, fresh earth and pencil shavings leads to a deep, rich palate festooned with juicy fruit flavours and a potent kick on the finish."
