Our multi-vintage Brut Reserve Rosé is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a small amount of red wine added to enhance color, body and flavor. A lovely, all-purpose sparkling wine that looks beautiful in the glass, this wine provides a fine accompaniment to a wide range of foods and makes a unique gift.
Our Brut Reserve Rosé displays fresh, fragrant strawberry jam and dark plum aromas. Creamy and impressively dense on the palate, its bright red fruit flavors pick up a pleasing dash of spice in the long, crisp finish.
Our Brut Reserve Rosé is an assemblage of up to 20 different vineyard lots and 30 different blending components. The characteristic coral pink tint comes from a small amount of Pinot Noir fruit, left to ripen fully on the vine, which is then fermented in traditional Burgundian fashion and added to the blend. A long cold soak prior to fermentation extracts color and flavor, but little tannin, from this mini-lot of Pinot Noir. The result is a wine with a gorgeous color and rich, red fruit character. To further enrich the wine, we age 20% of the base wine in French oak barrels prior to the secondary fermentation in bottle. The final blend spends 36 months en tirage, which fosters its creamy texture and rich mid-palate flavors.
This is a very versatile food wine that is delicious with salmon, ham, game and red meats.
