User Reviews for Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay, the Brut Rosé has hints of wild strawberries and roses with notes of peach. Although a pale pink in color, our Vintage Brut Rosé is not sweeter than our other wines. It is a true Brut. Rosé wines are often believed to be made only from Pinot Noir, but many including ours have some chardonnay added. In creating our Rosé we worked to create a wine of great balance using 55% Pinot noir and 45% Chardonnay, but at the same time, emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics to a greater extent than is evident in the Brut or Le Rêve. The special fruitiness of the Rosé 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 Rosé. 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. Traditionally, fine Rosé sparkling wines and champagnes have been made in very small quantities (and ours is no exception).
