Non-Vintage J Brut Rose

1 comment

Russian River Valley, California / $24-$25 Retail

J Vineyards and Winery produces top-quality still and sparkling wines with fruit from estate vineyards. A blend of 59 percent Pinot Noir and 41 percent Chardonnay, this wine ages an average of three years before disgorgement and dosage, followed by six more months in the cellar. In the glass, a fine mousse of the tiniest bubbles tantalizes the taste buds. Effervescent aromas of fresh strawberries and citrus notes lead into more complex flavors of blood orange, star fruit and lemon peel. Serve it well chilled by itself or with seafood, salads, light meats or soft cheeses. Buy it at: Swirl Wines and W.I.N.O. Drink it at: Coquette, Commander's Palace, Broussard's, Vincent's in Uptown and W.I.N.O. — Brenda Maitland
