Summer Seminar Series: Rosé Champagne
September 22, 2018, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$25
The history of rosé champagne is long and varied. Shipping records of the pink stuff date back to 1775. But while top producers of the region have always produced quality rosé champagne, the demand for it has never been as high as it is today. The modern interest in rosé has fueled a revolution in quality, as more winemakers strive to create a dynamic and complex iteration of this style of wine.
Most modern sparkling rosés are produced to emphasize the positive attributes of their still wine components, namely the freshness and purity of the fruit. However, some of our favorite rosé champagnes are built to last, with the potential to age beautifully and deliver the elegant, complex flavors of an older pinot-noir based wine, but with bubbles involved. We will talk about the different techniques used to make rosé champagne and why you should enjoy it on a regular basis.
Join us as we explore the ever-expanding world of rosé champagne.
