Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour, 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–famous for her comment, "Champagne is the only wine a woman can drink and remain beautiful."

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Cuvée de la Pompadour. 58% Pinot Noir; 42% Chardonnay. Once again one of the more refined local Rosés to be had and a wine that shows very fine fruity depth, this new version of the Cuvée de la Pompadour manages to be both polished and fairly rich at one and the same time with a degree of sophistication that only comes with the best. If a pleasure to drink now, it is so vital and carefully balanced that we can see it getting better if allowed to rest for a few years. "
91 Points

"Made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this is one of the winery's best Pompadours of the last four years. It's rich and delicious, with yeasty flavors of raspberries, strawberries, vanilla, toast and honey. It's beautiful to drink now with pate, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon."

This rose bubbly is delicate and fruity and just so classy! A favorite with girlfriends and my husband alike. If you want to shock your dinner guests, serve it with steak or duck (it works!).

The Domaine Carneros Rose has been produced for several years but only just recently available outside of the tasting room. It is completly dry but very fruity, strong flavors of strawberry's. I would buy this over French Rose's which are triple the price.

I can pick out 5 or more sparkling wines at a better price point than this rose. The flavors did nothing for me.

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
