Domaine Carneros Brut Rose

Domaine Carneros Brut Rose 750ML      
Sku: 19695

More than 250 years ago, Louis XV’s great paramour, Madame de la Pompadour, famously introduced sparkling wine to the court at Versailles. She declared it “the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful,Ē and today Domaine Carnerosí Pompadour Brut Rose is named in her honor. Domaine Carneros harvests estate-grown, certified organic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from its vineyards in Carneros to craft small quantities of this beautifully balanced Brut Rose. The Pinot Noir juice spends several days in contact with the grape skins in order to extract the lovely color and flavor components. In some years a small amount of estate Pinot Noir wine is added to adjust the color when needed.

Aromas are elegantly layered with bread yeast, roses, and raspberries. Flavors echo the aromas with tart red berries and brioche. The tight bubbles produce a frothy mousse that gives way to a tangy finish. Endlessly sippable. ”

Wine maker notes
Rosť wines are often believed to be made only from pinot noir, but many including ours have some chardonnay added. In creating our Rosť, we worked to create a wine of great balance using pinot noir and chardonnay, but at the same time, emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics to a greater extent than is evident in the Brut or Le RÍve.

The special fruitiness of the Rosť is obtained in two ways. The first way is to allow part of the pinot juice to spend several days in contact with the grape skins. (This is never allowed to happen with the other sparkling wines.) This extracts both the lovely color and flavor components that enhance the Rosť. The second way is to add back a small amount of red pinot noir wine. This is done to adjust both color and flavor. We do this red wine addition as a way to fine-tune the early skin contact, for example, if the color is a little too light.

Our Rosť is meant to be enjoyed at a fairly young age, around two years, when the fruity character is still predominant yet there is enough age to make the wine round and balanced. At about two years, the wineís aroma has hints of wild strawberries and roses with notes of peach. Although it is pink in color, our Brut Rosť is not sweeter than our other wines. It is a true Brut.


Technical notes
ALCOHOL: 12.7% pH 3.21 TOTAL ACIDITY 0.87 g/100ml SUGAR: (dosage) 1.28%

Food pairing
Foods that pair exceedingly well with the Rosť are duck and salmon, and it is the only one of our wines that goes really well with dessert. It is a beautiful wine for a wedding, brunch, Valentineís Day or any romantic dinner for two.
