NV Domaine Chandon Etoile Rose, North Coast, USA (750ml)
In keeping with the traditional method, we add a small amount of red wine (Pinot Noir) prior to tirage to create the distinctive salmon color with copper hues. The wine's aroma is rich yet elegant with plum and dark cherry fruit layered over notes of nutmeg and cocoa. A bold, yet refined palate structure characterizes this wine with subtle but persistent flavors of raspberry and French toast. The wine finishes with excellent length and richness that will stand up to a variety of foods.
A poised wine of some refinement. Sandy scents, stone fruit characters, and lingering almond and floral notes.

A blend of 47% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 8% Pinot Meunier, the NV Étoile Rosé is very pale salmon-pink colored and gives notes of wild strawberries, kirsch and preserved lemons with touches of spiced pears and almond croissant. Very finely crafted in the mouth with a wicked line of freshness, it has a nice, long perfumed finish.
