Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour

Domaine Carneros

Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: America / California / Carneros
Grapes: 72% Pinot Noir, 28% Chardonnay

More than 250 years ago, Louis XV's great paramour, Madame de la Pompadour, famously introduced sparkling wine to the court at Versailles. She declared it “the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful,” and today Domaine Carneros’ Pompadour Brut Rosé is named in her honor.

Domaine Carneros harvests estate-grown, green certified Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from its vineyards in Carneros to craft small quantities of this beautifully balanced Brut Rosé. The Pinot Noir juice spends several days in contact with the grape skins in order to extract the lovely color and flavor components. In some years a small amount of estate Pinot Noir wine is added to adjust the color when needed.

tasting note

The wine’s aroma, delivered on a delicate mousse, hints at wild strawberry, raspberry, peach, apricot, honeysuckle and exotic spices. Despite what its color may suggest, it is a true Brut – completely dry. And while Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé is enjoyable at a young age, it will also gain wonderful complexity with aging.

food pairing

Exceedingly food-friendly, pairs well with duck, salmon, and fresh berries.
