Winemaker Notes

The palate for this Champagne offers flavors of wile strawberries, with hints of red and black currants, vanilla and spice. Fresh and full-bodied, with fine tannins and elegant fruits.

Serve chilled. Excellent as an aperitif. Paris well with finely sliced Bellota ham, smoked salmon, chicken and spring vegetable samosas, grilled red mullet, assorted cheese and red berry fruit zabaglione.

Blend: 42% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier, 8% Solera of Pinot Noir

Critical Acclaim

D 93
Decanter
With aromas of red berries, spring flowers, pastry, smoke and strawberry/raspberry hints, the Rosé Solera from Palmer & Co has a dynamic palate with a fine bead of bubbles energising its vinous, almost full-bodied texture.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

This wine gains its color from a solera of pinot noir, representing eight percent of the blend; reserve wines account for another third. The pale pink color implies the wine’s delicacy, but not its layers of complexity. It layers notes of ginger, strawberries and roses over red currants, lasting on a savory, lacy intensity. Ready to enjoy.

COMMENTARY: The Champagne Palmer & Co. Rosé Solera is a most unusual Champagne in which the cuvée is enriched with 30-year-old solera of red wines vinified in oak barrels. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of wild strawberries, cherries, sandalwood, and savory spices. Enjoy its palate staying power with pan-seared scallops wrapped with thick sliced bacon. (Tasted: September 20, 2022, Napa, CA)

Wine Spectator

Dry and satiny on the palate, this offers up-front notes of white raspberry, delicate herbs, fleur de sel and orange peel that are more subtle through to the finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Drink now.

Champagne Palmer, France
Champagne Palmer Winery Image
Champagne Palmer & Co. was established in 1947 by seven grower-families with Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims region of Champagne. Winemaking at Palmer is a highly collaborative affair: Cellar Master Xavier Berdin and a team of four oenologists taste over 200 distinct lots. The team must reach full consensus before any blend is finalized. Unequaled access to top Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, the predominance of Chardonnay in its blends, extensive use of the cuvée (first press juice), and a distinct reliance on réserve wines are what make the Palmer signature style—balance and elegance—stand out.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

What are the different types of sparkling rosé wine?

Rosé sparkling wines like Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and others make a fun and festive alternative to regular bubbles—but don’t snub these as not as important as their clear counterparts. Rosé Champagnes (i.e., those coming from the Champagne region of France) are made in the same basic way as regular Champagne, from the same grapes and the same region. Most other regions where sparkling wine is produced, and where red grape varieties also grow, also make a rosé version.

How is sparkling rosé wine made?

There are two main methods to make rosé sparkling wine. Typically, either white wine is blended with red wine to make a rosé base wine, or only red grapes are used but spend a short period of time on their skins (maceration) to make rosé colored juice before pressing and fermentation. In either case the base wine goes through a second fermentation (the one that makes the bubbles) through any of the various sparkling wine making methods.

What gives rosé Champagne and sparkling wine their color and bubbles?

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, which traps carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. During this stage, the yeast cells can absorb some of the wine’s color but for the most part, the pink hue remains.

How do you serve rosé sparkling wine?

Treat rosé sparkling wine as you would treat any Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and other sparkling wine of comparable quality. For storing in any long-term sense, these should be kept at cellar temperature, about 55F. For serving, cool to about 40F to 50F. As for drinking, the best glasses have a stem and a flute or tulip shape to allow the bead (bubbles) and beautiful rosé hue to show.

How long do rosé Champagne and sparkling wine last?

Most rosé versions of Prosecco, Champagne, Cava or others around the “$20 and under” price point are intended for early consumption. Those made using the traditional method with extended cellar time before release (e.g., Champagne or Crémant) can typically improve with age. If you are unsure, definitely consult a wine professional for guidance.
