“Special skills and techniques are used to create Colmant’s Brut Rosé NV – and some unique alchemy too! While Chardonnay makes up 25% of the blend, Pinot Noir leads the dance with 75%. A portion (10%) of the Pinot Noir is macerated on the skins to give the Brut Rosé its colour and signature red berry aroma and flavour. The Chardonnay contributes vivacity, finesse and harmonious elegance. As with other Colmant wines, 15% of the base wine is barrel fermented in French oak and there is a 15% reserve wine portion blended in. Maturation time on lees is 24 months at a constant temperature of 14°C before release.” – Jean-Philippe
Modest salmon blush containing amber tones within pearlescent bubbles with scents of wild strawberries and redcurrants are brushed with a hint of flowers. Lovely tension of opposites in its red berry vivacity and succulence set against a silky richness and creamy texture.
This Brut Rose is lovely on its own in the warmth of summer or as an aperitif.
