Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour

Celebrate Mardi Gras in style with a glass of Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour. Domaine Carneros, the producer of this fine libation, has deep Franco-American roots and was founded in Carneros, CA. This wine owes its heritage to a partnership with Taittinger, a Premier family-owned Champagne house in France. This wonderful bubbly is sure to bring a sparkle to your Mardi Gras celebration. So whether or not you plan to repent and give up wine for lent, you better party like the original rock-star of “sparkle.” Madame de la Pompadour, the namesake of this Cuvée, introduced Champagne to Louis XV’s court at Versailles; she declared it “the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful,”

Tasting Notes

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.
