2017 Le Rêve Rosé

Available for a brief time each holiday season, this gorgeous rosé is an elegant showstopper. More than any of our other sparkling wines, it reflects the vintage as expressed in a few distinguished blocks of our best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Using our tête de cuvée Le Rêve chardonnay as a base, this delicate and refined wine is created by adding two different pinot noir components: classic base wines without skin contact and base wines that undergo maceration for a few days for color extraction. Ths brief skin contact is essential to the delicate fruitiness and soft coral hue. As with our Le Rêve Cuvée family, this méthode traditionnelle rosé enjoys six years of aging before release. The treasured wine that results from years of dedicated winemaking is unparalleled in its refinement and elegance.
