A festive salmon pink,with a subtle tinge of rust. Fruity and fleshy, elegantly robust with a perfect balance of freshness. Although delightful by day, soft lighting is the most flattering to Brut Rose's colors, making it the champagne of romantic evenings, par excellence.
To create Brut Rosé, Pommery selects some thirty crus. In this delicate composition, Chardonnay grapes are predominant, making up over one-third of the blend. A handful of Pinot Noir grapes are made into red wine before being blended with the Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier varieties. The Brut Rose is then aged in the Pommery cellars for an average of three years.
"An elegant rose, with a firm backbone of acidity and a delicate mousse. A hint of smoky mineral underscores the creamy flavors of strawberry, pear, almond financier and lemon zest. "
"Light salmon-skin color. Spicy red berry and citrus aromas, with nuances of green cardamom and cinnamon. Delicate, finely etched redcurrant and blood orange flavors pick up deeper pear and yellow plum notes with air, along with a gently smoky quality. A dusty mineral note adds grip and focus to the finish, which repeats the redcurrant note. I suspect that this will be plumper and sweeter in a year or so."

"The delicate fruit character of this wine touches on cool Rainier cherry, its brisk acidity sweeping the finish clean. There's a mineral-soil note in the middle that keeps it savory, for cured meats."
