2011 Rosé

Tasting Notes

Light rose colour with a pale ruby hue. On the nose, hints of wild strawberry and raw cinnamon combine with a range of toastiness from grilled bread to soft ember aromas. The palate displays the wine’s intensity with dynamic effervescence and a structured richness. The elevated concentration complements the wine’s elegance, as freshness and earthy cherry notes keep the wine in a state of balanced harmony.

Not only do sparkling rosés add merriment to any occasion when sipped as an apéritif, they define versatility — pairing beautifully with pork tenderloin, duck, lobster, or Mediterranean-inspired dishes. This is a sparkling designed to enjoy.
