This pink-salmon colored wine is 66% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, and 1% Pinot Meunier. It has aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apples, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, you'll sense ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds. Lively acidity and minerality frame a lingering, lush finish. Try pairing it with roasted beet and goat cheese salad, a simple plate of smoked salmon canapés, or blue cheese.
All of the grapes for this wine were placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our French Coquard press for a gentle pressing. The Coquard press allows for slow, low-pressure pressing to minimize the breakdown of grape skins and seeds. A small portion of Pinot Noir was left on the skins to impart a pinkish-salmon color, this rosé’s signature hue. As is customary for Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine production, the secondary fermentation occurred in the bottle. The wine was aged en tirage in our cool cellars for an average of two years, developing deeper complexity as the years went by. The dosage was made from a blend of reserve wines and pure cane sugar. The wine was aged for another six months before release from our cellars.
