Disgorged in June 2016 with eight grams per liter dosage, the 2010 1086 Vintage Rosé is showing well, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully reticent bouquet of dried flowers and delicate hints of red berries and gingerbread. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, tight-knit and chalky, with fine-boned phenolic structure, racy acids and a nicely defined finish. Like its white counterpart from the 2009 vintage, it’s impressively complete, but the 2010 Rosé is a bit more introverted and needs a bit of time in the cellar to blossom.

Slightly deeper in color than the pre-released 2013, the 2010 Nyetimber Rosé 1086 was bottled in April 2011 and disgorged in December 2018. It has an attractive bouquet of red cherry and rose petals, and a light fish scale note develops with time. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity, offering lemon zest, red cherry and a touch of rhubarb toward the finish. Very fine.
