Medium steely amber color. Aromas and flavors of grilled nectarine, raspberry and strawberry, red apple and blood orange, and bread dough with a round, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a very long finish with notes of red apple, raspberry, and orange, dried flowers, and baked apricot turnover. Simply delicious, and loaded with vibrant red fruit and balanced with refreshing citrus; a prudent host should have one of these chilled at all times for any unexpected occasion that might arise.

Although Rosé Champagne accounts for little more than 10% of overall Champagne production, it is arguably the trendiest style of Champagne. While a definition of Rosé Champagne (all are made in a Brut style with lower dosage) is difficult, what every rosé Champagne has in common is its color, ranging from pale salmon and copper to bright pink.

Rosé Champagnes are made by one of two processes: either assemblage, where still red wine is added to the Champagne or by the saignée (literally “bleeding”) where the color of the Champagne is derived from skin contact. Rosés can be made from 100% red grapes –Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier or can even be primarily Chardonnay; thus there are many different styles. As red grapes add more weight to the wine, rosé Champagnes are better suited to pairing with meat and game.
