The beauty of our methóde traditionnelle wines is that the longer they age the more harmonious and elegant they become. This Rosé from 2017 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.
Since 2005 we have produced this beautiful aged rosé in very limited quantities. Our devoted “bubble heads” patiently wait for its release each year. A captivating perfume of strawberry, raspberry, and baked peaches leads to lustrous layers of apricots, peach preserves, rose hip, and pie crust with a hint of
honeycomb on the silky, lingering finish. Rich and expansive while delicate and poised, it showcases its pedigree and patient cellaring, sip after beautiful sip.
In 2017, Carneros was gifted with its 3rd wettest winter in 125 years, refilling reservoirs and aquifers that had been depleted in the previous drought years. Happy vines developed healthy canopies which tempered the higher-than-average temperatures and brief heat spikes that characterized the growing season. Harvest began on August 7th, a fairly typical start date in Carneros. The resulting wines
show beautiful depth, concentration, and freshness.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a serious, aged rosé for the bubbly aficionado. We suggest pairing this wine with dark chocolate or peach pie.
