A vintage small batch méthode champenoise sparkling wine that delivers integrated, and long lasting refined fruit with a light pinkish hue. Our Brut Rosé undergoes the same processes and initial blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, as our Brut Cuvee. The point of distinction lies in Michel’s hand choosing of a barrel of Pinot Noir to blend with the Brut Cuvee resulting in a truly elegant Rosé that can best be described as our Brut Cuvee with a soft fuller fruit component.

2006 Brut Rosé
- Tom Stevenson CSWWC
Tasting Notes, 2014. In 2015, the 07 Brut Rosé won a Best in class award for Best USA Vintage Rosé as well as a gold medal. It also was awarded one of the four USA Gold medals won in 2014.
Such an elegant, pale peach rosé, with refined aromas of apricot-tart, vanilla and fleeting notes of charred oak, all of which are beautifully mirrored on the palate, which is developed yet deliciously fresh and brimming with yeast-complexed red fruits, lovely acidity and a nigh-on perfect mousse. The result is an impressive linear persistency without much weight at all. Luxuriously silky-smooth mouthfeel is the crowing glory of this sparkling wine masterclass.
