Winemaker Notes

The delicate pale rosé color is inspired by the sunset as seen from the rooftop of the Paris Opera. The bubble is delicate, frothy and persistent. The nose is generous and complex with subtle aromas of red berries and white flowers. The wine is precise and elegant, the flavors reflect the aromas perceived on the nose in a generous basket of red fruit on a bed of brioche. The finish is very long and rich with soft and creamy notes.

Pairs well with aperitif or seafood.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich, with flavors of buttery scone topped with accents of strawberry preserves and clotted cream, this vivacious rosé sparkler features citrusy acidity and a lively mousse. Offers a lingering creamy finish.
D 90
Decanter

Beautifully perfumed with creamy peach and a hint of blanched nuts, the palate is buoyed with plush, ripe yellow fruit.

An appellation in the cooler, elevated, southern Languedoc and internationally recognized for its sparkling wines, Cremant de Limoux by definition must be comprised predominantly of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc with only miniscule amounts of the indigenous white variety, Mauzac.

This is in contrast to the more regional sparkler, Blanquette de Limoux, created from mainly Mauzac with tiny amounts of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

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.
