2017 LaRue's Brut Rosé
Our Brut Rosé is comprised of 84% Pinot Noir and 16% Chardonnay from higher elevation sections of our estate. A vibrant rose gold color, aromatics of ripe white cherry, marzipan, and subtle hints of brioche jump out of the glass. The palate is mouthwatering with fine bubbles and an energetic tension that carries through an elongated finish.
This wine was fermented and aged on lees in neutral French oak for 8-months before being tiraged. After tirage, the 2017 LaRue’s Brut Rosé matured on lees for nearly three more years in bottle before release. While it’s enjoyable now, this wine will continue to evolve for decades.
