SPARKLING ROSÉ Traditional method, California
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHANDON
Bright pale salmon pink colour. Attractive, somewhat honeyed, spicy, ripe melon-plum-apple puree nose. Fairly dry, medium-light bodied, slightly honeyed, faintly effervescent, ripe lemon citrus and plum-strawberry-apple purée flavours with a lingering, crisp, very faintly toasty finish. Ready-to-drink. At $34.95, this would be an OK substitute for anyone wishing to drink real Rosé Champagne. While this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir spends 12 months on the lees, it has 12% alcohol and 13 g/L residual sugar with lot number L091316. Last appeared in Vintages (***) on June 10, 2017 at $35.95 and was Recommended. CSPC 405555

LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: This great value in sparkling wine comes from Domaine Chandon, the California arm of Chandon, the producers of Dom Perignon. It is a traditionally crafted wine produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and spends 12 months resting on the lees. The result is an elegant wine that delivers the bread-and-toast autolytic notes so beloved in wines produced through the Champagne method. Expect this to be balanced and approachable, with complex red fruit tones. Enjoy with seafood or duck. Score - 92 (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, June 17, 2017) Price $ 34.95
