Domaine Carneros "Cuvée de la Pompadour" Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

SKU #1470688 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of stone and rose lead to a rich, unctuous midpalate of wild strawberry, tangerine and Meyer lemon in this persistently bright blend of Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%). Elegant and lively, it offers complexity within an inviting, approachable context of tremendous likability. *Editors' Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Fresh and moderately yeasty with a narrow line of lightly cherryish fruit on the nose with a subtle stony note just off to the side, this solid, firmly built effort shows good Rosé weight on the palate yet is kept lively by its ample and ongoing mousse. It musters a proper bit of grip at the finish that directs it to service with food, but its slightly creamier parts prevent it from becoming unduly stiff, and, if never dramatically toasty, it is never without a careful trim of autolysis that affords it a welcome degree of the refined richness that we have come to expect from the winery's Cuvée de la Pompadour bottlings. *One Star* Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Pale pink in color, this is a clean, honeyed sparkler with spicy acidity and good pinpoint grip to the bubbles. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The Domaine Carneros Cuvée de la Pompadour Brut Rosé, celebrates the life and times of Madame de Pompadour (the great courtesan and mistress of Louis XV) who is credited with introducing Champagne to the court and was an influential tastemaker in the matters of art, architecture and philosophy. Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is a wine of great balance, emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics to a greater extent than evident in the Brut or Le Rêve. It is made strictly with artisan attention to quality, with sourcing exclusively from Carneros and the use of time-honored Champenoise methods of production. A blend of 58% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay, the Brut Rosé is meant to be enjoyed at a fairly young age, when the fruity character is still predominant yet there is enough age to make the wine round and balanced. The wine's aroma has hints of wild strawberries and roses with notes of peach Although a pale pink in color, Brut Rosé is not sweeter than our other wines. It is a true Brut."
