"Based on Pinot Noir the NV Crémant d'Alsace Rosé Brut has a very pale color with just a hint of rosé. Very delicate fruit aroma with hints of red berries and flowers on the very subtle, fresh and elegant nose lead to a full-flavored and quite expressive palate. The wine is quite powerful and fruit intense but in a discreet and elegant way. Firmly structured but provided with fine bubbles and an aromatic aftertaste there is really finesse in this very well-made and distinctive sparkling wine." -Robert Parker
Color: A light shade of powder pink, clear and bright, with abundant bubbles.
Nose: Subtle, it is fresh and refined, revealing delicate aromas of strawberries, raspberries, blood orange and blackcurrant.
Palate: The attack is precise and sharp, leading to a subtle, tightly knit palate, featuring a lot of freshness and finesse. Notes of red berries and Bartlett pear, showing remarkable minerality through chalk and graphite notes. •
Finish: Delicate and fine, it is elegant with a sophisticated finish, like a finely crafted, mineral lace.
Persistent mousse, with fine bubbles rising slowly. Pale salmon pink in color, with a shade of gold. A nose of red fruits and fresh pear. Delicate fruit on the palate, elegant, and showing great finesse.
"An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. Drink now."- James Suckling
The ’16 Vin Gris is a bit of a departure from recent vintages, somewhat deeper in color and definitely a bit fruitier than some, though the fruit is perhaps (at least at this stage) more of the dark and brooding variety, particularly suggestive of black currants, Damson plum and rosehips. In our modern world, one must never, ever, ever, make anything like a health claim for an alcoholic beverage. Les français, on the other hand, have no difficulty believing that a properly selected wine can remediate, if not cure almost any medical or existential complaint. So, no, I’m not saying that the Vin Gris has a calmative effect on jangled nerves, nor that it creates an immense feeling of well-being almost immediately upon just scenting it, even before the first sip. (Though it does smell an awful lot like any of the sundry tisanes (tilleul, eglantine) that will definitely do you some good.) Its perfume is subtle, haunting, not vulgar or tawdry, like some of the louche rosés de la nuit. Enfin, this wine is all about elegance and restraint. Rosehips, cassis, fraises de bois, citrus rind, with a wonderfully austere stony finish.
This wine is easy to enjoy on a hot day or as an aperitif.
“Bright pink. Redcurrant and cherry aromas, with a gentle licorice note on the bright,
fresh nose. Tangy and focused on the palate, which displays floral red cherry flavors and a hint of pomegranate. Finishes clean and tart, with dusty tannins providing a pleasantly tactile bite. Clearly not the most complex wine you or I will drink this year, but well made, fresh, bright and juicy. A fine summer rosato for the price.” -Vinous Media
The nose is delicate and complex, with summer fruits, peach, pear, some floral notes and gentle citrus fruits. The palate is a wonderful blend of flavors and textures. Balanced impeccably with the acidity, are not cloying or overpowering. The finish is long, tender and refreshing. The overall sensation is of an amazingly refreshing, complex and delicate rose. It will go very well with traditional Provence cuisine and during your brunch.
"Lovely strawberry shortcake and hint of petal aromas; generous palate with depth of flavours - spice to frame the delicate fruit, and a fine cushion of lees to carry to an elegant finish."- Decanter
This is a Rose of exceptional freshness and expressive flavors which derive from the unique blend of native grapes. The wine displays pure and intense flavors and aromas of black cherry, strawberry, wild flowers and minerals which have made the Carrel Jongieux Rose a favorite in the Savoie region's finest restaurants.
80% Mondeuse, 20% Gamay
This blend of Cinsault, Counoise and Grenache is a true rosé de saignée (French for bleed), where some of the wine is removed from the vat leaving a smaller amount of wine left to bleed with the skins which intensifies color, tannins, and concentration.
Concentrated in both color and flavor, Les Gardettes delivers a healthy dose of French relaxation. Full of strawberry, peach, and other stone fruit flavors and supported by good acidity and freshness.
For the first-time ever in our Rosé program, we blended two cool-climate appellations: Sonoma Coast (60%) and Mendocino Ridge (40%). These highly touted wine regions offer the perfect growing conditions for the crisp, lively style of Rosé we strive to produce. The Manchester Ridge Vineyard and Mariah Vineyard from the Mendocino Ridge AVA are perched at about 2,000 feet elevation, situated extremely close to the vast Pacific Ocean, and offering us unparalleled acidity. The vineyards from the Sonoma Coast AVA are located in the rolling hills of the West Sonoma Coast, with fruit coming from a handful of our favorite organic and biodynamically farmed sites which are situated within 8-miles of the coastline.
This wine has a bouquet of strawberries and white flowers with hints of vanilla. It has the harmony and elegance that has earned world-wide appreciation of the rosés of Provence. Triennes rosé is the perfect accompaniment to a sunny summer afternoon.
Cinsault with Grenache, Syrah and Merlot
An irresistible pink! Charming, refreshing, refined, and with plenty of juicy, enticing, strawberry and berry fruit. This is a rosé that should be in everyone’s cellars, without exception. Drinkable is an understatement and you’ll keep on coming back for seconds… We defy you to resist.
"Alluring, with a creamy feel to the mix of white peach, mango and white cherry fruit flavors that stay nicely defined on the finish, thanks to a subtle mineral edge." -Wine Spectator
