This fresh and juicy wine that’s a gorgeous shade of pink completes the Chandon portfolio by offering an aromatic, dry Rosé sparkling wine. Though it’s not sweet, the Chandon Rosé, which is mostly Chardonnay with a kiss of Pinot Noir, offers the essence of summery fruits.
Aging Profile: Minimum of 12 months on the yeast
Grapes were gently pressed, fermented into wine, blended and bottled along with yeast and sugar to start the second fermentation that makes méthode traditionnelle wines effervescent. After aging, the wine is clarified by riddling, which moves the yeast sediment to the neck of the bottle. The necks are frozen, and the yeast is expelled in a process called disgorgement. To balance the acidity before applying the cork, each bottle is topped off with a small amount of liqueur, sugar dissolved in reserve wine, also known as the dosage. The wine is then aged at least six additional months before release.
In the glass, our Rosé is a pretty pink with intense ripe strawberry, juicy watermelon, and fresh red cherry fruit aromas and flavors. On the palate, this wine is creamy and seductive with a defined structure from the Pinot Noir added in its final stages.
Food and Wine Pairing
Rosé is a wonderfully versatile style for pairing with food and this sparkler is no exception. The abundant fruit flavors in this refreshing wine make it a perfect partner for all seafood and especially grilled salmon and shellfish in paella or gumbo. Its fresh flavors also make it a tasty choice for a not-too sweet dessert.
