Winemaker Notes

This pale rosé champagne with its delicate aromas, most ideal with appetizers and hos d'oeuvres, is light and airy on the palate.

The robe is a pale, tender and luminous pink color. The nose opens with subtle aromas of red fruits. The palate unveils aromas of strawberries carried by a fresh harmonious effervescence.

Blend: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling

Aromas of dried strawberries, earth and some smoke follow through to a full-bodied, tight and integrated palate with a spicy, candied-strawberry aftertaste. Minerally and flinty at the end. 30% pinot noir and 70% chardonnay.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Based on the 2018 vintage and disgorged in October 2020, Soutiran's latest NV Brut Grand Cru Rosé delivers notes of tangerine, red fruits and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a pinpoint mousse and an ample, enveloping core of fruit, it's an elegantly vinous, nicely defined rosé that's already showing well.

Wine Enthusiast
From the village of Ambonnay on the Montagne de Reims, this crisply textured wine has impressive depth. Its mineral edge comes from the fresh Chardonnay in the blend, giving great white fruits allied to a steely texture.

Champagne Soutiran, France
Champagne Soutiran is a family owned domaine based in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. Patrick and Valerie Renaux, who represent the domaine’s third generation, cultivate 8 hectares of vineyards dedicated to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In Ambonnay, the chalk laden soils of the region are complemented by a higher degree of siliceous clay, which result in Champagnes that are often equipped with a more formidable structure than wines from other Grand Cru sites. Total production at this family owned domaine tops out at 70,000 bottles.

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.
