Chandon étoile Rosé
|Region||California, North Coast|
étoile embodies our commitment to crafting the finest sparkling wine in America. Elegant and rich with layers of fresh plum, raspberry and nutmeg, our étoile Rosé showcases our ultimate effervescent expression of Sparkling Rosé. The wine is elegant and restrained with fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and nutmeg. These aromas follow through on the palate and are layered with subtle and delicate flavors of cocoa powder. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness. The understated power of étoile Rosé makes it an excellent foil for the richness found in foie gras or chicken liver paté. It would be a natural accompaniment to salmon, trout or duck confit.
Based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this luxe rosé bubbly is delicious to drink now. It's likeable for the array of strawberry, orange and lime flavors, with that savory sparkling wine yeastiness, and the bubbles are smooth and refined. Will set off many different foods, but sushi is a definite hit.
Sleek and rich, with a light salmon hue and floral apricot and strawberry aromas. The flavors are supple, yet crisp and well-structured, with cherry, peach and spiced almond notes. Drink now through 2016. 2,000 cases made.
