Rosé, Carneros 2017
Chandon crafts its still Rosé by drawing on experience with traditional Champagne varieties, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It is carefully blended to be the perfect summer wine that is light and easy-to-enjoy.
Our Carneros terroir is diverse with rolling hills sloping to San Pablo Bay. The proximity of the bay moderates the vineyard microclimates with morning and evening fog along with afternoon breezes. The cool, extended growing season is ideal for Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and provides the long hang time essential for complexity, intense aromatics, flavor and finesse.
This is an elegant rosé with fresh aromas of zesty grapefruit, strawberry, cherry and orange blossom followed by a creamy yet lively mouthfeel that is balanced with vibrant acidity and a long, refreshing finish.
Pairs well with your favorite salmon appetizers, grilled sausage, fish, or a grilled artichoke.
