A blend of Pinot Noir (58%) and Chardonnay (42%), our Brut Rosé Sparkling showcases the delicate fruitiness of Pinot Noir with hints of wild strawberry and a long, lively finish.
To capture the wine’s special fruit character, some of the Pinot Noir juice is allowed several days’ contact with the grape skins to extract color and flavor. We also add a very small amount of Pinot Noir wine to further enhance the wine’s profile.
The wine’s aroma, delivered on a delicate mousse, hints at wild strawberry, ripe peach, apricot, pomegranate, honeysuckle and exotic spices. Despite its color, it is a true Brut – as dry as our other wines. And while Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is enjoyable at a young age, it will also gain wonderful complexity with aging.
Classic pairings with Brut Rosé include duck and salmon, but it is also uniquely compatible with desserts including fresh berries. The wine is an enchanting accompaniment at weddings and romantic meals, and delightful served outside for summer brunch or dinner.
