Domaine Carneros Cuvée de la Pompadour Brut Rosé NV

Carneros, Napa Valley, California, United StatesThis multi-vintage mix of 59/41 organically grown pinot noir/chardonnay is at the centre of Pompadour and its medium red/peach colour. A portion of the pinot noir juice gets several days of contact with the skins to extract colour and flavour, and a small amount of still pinot is added to the blend. There is a surprising amount of acidity to keep this wine fresh, but on the palate, it is all strawberries and caramel with some pomegranate and spice. This is an attractive pre-dinner sipper. Madame de Pompadour (mistress to Louis XV) is credited with introducing Champagne to the Versailles court and inspiring the Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour.Tasted: 24 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
