Domaine Chandon Brut Rosé (Previously $16)

SKU #1034625 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Brut Rose gives a pale salmon pink color and notes of wild strawberries and cream with ripe apple and a hint of peach blossom. With well-balanced, refreshing acidity, small persistent bubbles and a medium-long finish, this wine makes a great aperitif, though it has just enough intensity to make a nice food sparkler. It is made to drink now.  (6/2010)

Wine Enthusiast

 Good price for a brisk, clean and elegant rosé sparkling wine. With a pretty copper color, it offers rich raspberry, strawberry and toast flavors. The finish is dry and honeyed at the same time.  (12/2010)

Wine Spectator

 Notes of raspberry, graham cracker and vanilla mark this lively wine, which finishes on a dry note.  (11/2010)

K&L Notes

A delicate and elegant sparkling rosé (90% Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) that's as attractive in the glass as it is on the palate. Made from a combination of early-harvest grapes fermented into a sparkling wine and 10% still Pinot Noir made from grapes picked at greater ripeness. The wine's bouquet is intensely fruity, full of strawberry, watermelon and red cherry aromas underscored by apple, pear and stone fruit. On the palate, the wine is creamy, yet delineated from the addition of still pinot. Vibrant and food-friendly. The San Francisco Chronicle writes: "Chandon remains on a serious upward swing under winemaker Tom Tiburzi; this is its best pink in years. A distinct cherry presence, with enough pastry-crust aromas to evoke a cherry turnover. Focused and energetic."

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
