Fluteau Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1073592

Wow, is this stuff is dark! If you are interested in tasting a 'red wine' Champagne, this is your opportunity. This potent, even tannic Champagne reminds me very much of red wine, but with wonderful bubbles. It is entirely estate grown Pinot Noir, from the Fluteau estate in Gye-Sur-Seine. Made by macerating all of the grape skins so they stay in contact with the juice to get the maximum flavor and color. This rosé is a great bottle for a picnic with cold cut sandwiches, or even with dessert. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer) The base wine is from 2010 and this bottling is 9g/l dosage. (Scott Beckerley, San Francisco).

By far the darkest rose champagne I have ever seen, the color of this incredible Fluteau Rose Brut Champagne is the color of a classic Pinot Noir! Rich and fruity, with beautiful bubble structure and a clean finish. There is an element of the earth of a classic Burgundian Pinot Noir in the back ground in this startling champagne. A rose not to be missed.... A fabulous alternative to standard Pinot Noir on your Thanksgiving Day table! Think ahead for your holiday celebrations & stock up- this is unusual & incredible!

This Champagne has a nice dark and intense pink that inches towards red. The Fluteau Rose is full bodied, has dark fruit flavors and is dry. This is a Champagne that well go best with food, perhaps salmon or chicken.

Yes, this is a rosé Champagne, and yes, it is so deeply colored that its appearance in the glass will shock you. This is a saignée style bottling very typical of the southernmost part of Champagne, the Côte des Bar, or Aube. The extra skin contact adds both color and flavor, enabling the wine to express more clearly the character of the Pinot Noir grape. Ripe, red cherry fruits, lightly floral with just a hint of licorice, this excellent grower producer Champagne is a rare treat that can be enjoyed on its own or with food.

This is the first time that we have carried this wine and it is marvelous! Deep and rich, with big pinot flavors of rich strawberries and dark cherries. Big enough to handle a main course and balanced enough to stand on its own! This is my favorite of the Fluteau line.

Taking Mr. Westby’s advice, I had a glass of this at the beginning of my evening with cold cuts, bread and cheese, managed to show some semblance of will power and managed to save half a bottle to enjoy with dessert. Both pairings were superb, this dark and powerful Rose is deep and brooding and offers quite the array of options.
