Domaine Carneros Brut RoséRose wines are often believed to be made only from pinot noir, but many including ours have some chardonnay added. In creating our Rosé, we worked to create a wine of great balance using pinot noir and chardonnay, but at the same time, emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics to a greater extent than is evident in the Brut or Le Rêve. Foods that pair exceedingly well with the Rosé are duck and salmon, and it is the only one of our wines that goes really well with dessert. It is a beautiful wine for a wedding, brunch, Valentine's Day or any romantic dinner for two. - Winery Notes
