Baron Fuente "Esprit" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1133810 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Darker in color than many rosés, this Champagne was produced using color from the grape skins rather than by adding still red wine. That method yields a wine with more structure, faint tannins and a noticeable toasty character. Its red fruit is vivid and rich, the wine ready to drink. (RV)  (6/2017)

K&L Notes

A blend of 50% Pinot Meunier and 50% Pinot Noir, this vibrantly-colored Rosé was made by saignée de cuvée, allowing the crushed grapes to soak in their sugary juices before pressing instead of whole cluster, direct pressing. What this means for you is bright, crisp fruit flavors throughout, with a delicate mousse. Enjoy as an aperitif, or with steamed salmon. Or with strawberries and cream, naturally.

Produced from 50% Pinot Meunier and 50% Pinot Noir, this lovely Gem has an incredible perfumed nose of dried rose petals and a ripe field of strawberries. The color is a deep pink tone to the point that I am surprise that it was allowed to be release as a Rosé by the appellation control dudes and not turned down as a sparkling red wine (the French do not allow the Champagne producers to make red sparkling wine. Too bad!). With its very fine, well defined bead, this is a wonderful and an amazing sparkler on the palate. Bright, fresh, and focused, this Gem is complex, with floral notes and excellent fullness, and leaves a long, incredibly satisfying finish. The Bean has ordered me to bring home cases of this Champagne Roeé Gem for our long term consumption. She also ordered all of you to do the same. Great Value! *****12.5% ABV ****
Drink from 2015 to 2025

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
