Château des Charmes Sparkling Rosé 2014

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThis traditional method rosé of chardonnay and pinot noir was bottle aged for at least 18 months, and disgorged to order (10 g/L), though the DG date is not listed on the bottle. This bottle is showing its age, and time on lees, with a deeper orange peach hue, and notes of dried cherry, cherry blossom, orange pekoe, almonds, and light brioche. What this aged fizz might lack in freshness, it trades for aged complexity. This elegant wine is drinking well now.Tasted: 22 April 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 34.95 winery direct Producer: Château des CharmesDistributors: Blue Note Wine & Spirits Inc.
