2020 Brut Rosé

Traditionally, fine rosé sparkling wines and champagnes have been made in very small quantities, and ours is no exception. The beautiful, delicate color of this wine comes from leaving part of the Pinot Noir juice in contact with the skins for three days during harvest. Rosé wines are often believed to be made from only Pinot Noir, but the best, including ours, have Chardonnay added for structure. Produced in méthode traditionnelle from our estate fruit and aged for a minimum of three years on the lees, this wine expresses great balance while emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, the 2020 rosé welcomes the senses with aromas of potpourri, rose petal, peaches, and a hint of matchstick. The sophisticated and dry palate displays flavors of mandarin, tangerine, peaches and cream, raspberry, and ginger. A warm toastiness evolves from extended aging on the lees and combines with the ethereal Pinot Noir fruit character. As the wine ages and the tiny bubbles are formed, an elegant wine of great poise evolves.
