Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) Our Brut Reserve Rosé is an assemblage of up to 20 different vineyard lots and 30 different blending components. The characteristic coral pink tint comes from a small amount of Pinot Noir fruit, left to ripen fully on the vine, which is then fermented in traditional Burgundian fashion and added to the blend. A long cold soak prior to fermentation extracts color and flavor, but little tannin, from this mini-lot of Pinot Noir. The result is a wine with a gorgeous color and rich, red fruit character. To further enrich the wine, we age 20% of the base wine in French oak barrels prior to the secondary fermentation in bottle. The final blend spends 36 months en tirage, which fosters its creamy texture and rich mid-palate flavors.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Brut Rosé offers a bouquet of ripe Pinot Noir fruit, rich with black cherry and strawberry notes. Part of the wine is initially fermented in the press, producing the soft fruity character that gives Brut Rosé its directness, while a small percentage of Chardonnay gives the wine power and structure. This more robust quality makes Brut Rosé a wonderful wine with many kinds of cuisine, ranging from Thai to Italian. Note: The Brut Rosé was formerly called "Blanc de Noirs." We have changed the name of this release to better reflect the wine's elegant nature.

    Mumm's Blanc de Noirs has been a perennial CGCW favorite, but its name has been changed to Rose and, in this outing at least, it is a little less fruity and a bit more austere than what its style had heretofore been. A bit light in substance and sparing in yeast, it may be refreshing but could do with a more interest and depth.
