GRAPES: 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay.
WINEMAKER NOTES: The wine's aroma, delivered on a delicate mousse, hint at wild strawberry, ripe peach, apricot, pomegranate, honeysuckle and exotic spices. Despite its colour, 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 ageing.
VINEYARDS: Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is named for Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV's great paramour. She is the one who introduced sparkling wine to the court of Versailles and she is famous for having said, "Champagne is the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful."
WINE MAKING: 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 colour and flavour. We also add a very small amount of Pinot Noir wine to further enhance the wine's profile.
