In keeping with the traditional method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine's aroma is rich yet elegant with plum and dark cherry fruit layered over notes of nutmeg and cocoa. A bold, yet refined palate structure characterizes this wine with subtle but persistent flavors of raspberry and French toast. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods. The understated power of this wine with its bold but elegant character is an excellent match with the richness found in foie gras. It would be a natural accompaniment to salmon or trout dishes or for the adventurous chef - duck confit with plum salad. For even more fun, try this elegant wine on a romantic picnic.

Wine EnthusiastBased on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this luxe rosé bubbly is delicious to drink now. It's likeable for the array of strawberry, orange and lime flavors, with that savory sparkling wine yeastiness, and the bubbles are smooth and refined. Will set off many different foods, but sushi is a definite hit.

Wine SpectatorSleek and rich, with a light salmon hue and floral apricot and strawberry aromas. The flavors are supple, yet crisp and well-structured, with cherry, peach and spiced almond notes. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases made.
