The beauty of our methóde traditionnelle wines is that the longer they age the more harmonious and elegant they become. This Rosé from 2016 vintage is labeled as LATE DISGORGED because it is held back for an additional two years for a total of five years resting on the lees (aka “sur lie”). Since 2005 we have produced this beautiful aged Brut Rosé in very limited quantities. Our devoted “bubble heads” patiently wait for its release each year and then quickly snap up all we make. Available only at the winery in limited quantities. 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our eleventh vintage of this rare rosé has achieved a creaminess and complexity that can only come with time. A captivating perfume of strawberry, raspberry, mandarin, dried rose petals, and baked peaches leads to lustrous layers of apricots, peach preserves, toasted almonds, with a hint of honey on the silky, lingering finish. Rich and expansive while delicate and poised, it showcases its pedigree and patient cellaring, sip after beautiful sip.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 harvest was a high quality vintage marked by mild, consistent weather through the growing season and lower than average temperatures in the crucial months of June and July. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and consistently, providing optimum flavor development. The Late Disgorged Rosé has a lovely apricot color that is the result of leaving a small portion of the Pinot Noir in contact with the skins. Most rosés simply have red wine added, but we chose to go with this skin contact method that allows us to maintain our signature seamless and silky texture.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a serious, aged rosé for the bubbly aficionado. We suggest pairing this wine with an aged gouda, dark chocolate, or baked peach tartlet.
