Champagne Tribaut Rosé
The small fluted glass sat, bubbles slowly tapering from the bottom to the top as the conversation flowed easily around it. After nearly an hour, the woman looked down and realized she had forgotten about her glass. But yet, the bubbles still came...

Aromas of rose petal, baking yeast, and red berries are carried effortlessly to the nose, bubble by bubble, whetting the palate for a rare treat of tasting such a finely crafted Champagne. On the palate, flavors of tart strawberry and dried mandarin orange dart from point to point, again carried on by those tiny bubbles.
Champagne Tribaut Rosé is a selection of eight unique terroirs, each chosen to give the maximum complexity and balance to this unique Rosé. Produced from a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Noir, this wine is marked by a persistent effervescence that sees tiny bubbles emerging from the wine long after it is poured into the glass. This is a mark of natural “Méthode Champenoise” fermentation, where the wine goes through its secondary fermentation, which produces the bubbles, in the bottle. This natural method is slow, the wine ages for two years in the bottle as the process takes place, but produces an extremely elegant and flavorful wine.
Food Pairing Notes
As special as this wine is on its own, it is taken to new heights when paired with crab cakes or fresh prawns.
