Tasting Notes: Our J Brut Rosé sparkles with a vibrant pink salmon hue and offers layered aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, Fuji apple, rose petals and a savory swath of toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, an elegant mouthfeel combines with flavors of ripe raspberry, blood orange and blanched almonds underlined by lively acidity and steely minerality.
Galaxy Notes: 66% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 1% Pinot Meunier The grapes for our Brut Rosé were selected from J’s Estate Pinot Noir Vineyards in the Russian River Valley including Nonny’s and Nicole’s, and Chardonnay from River Ranch and Bow Tie Estate Vineyards. All grapes are hand harvested in the early morning and placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our Coquard press for a gentle pressing. The Coquard press allows a low-pressure, slow pressing to minimize solids and the breakdown of grape skins and seeds. A small portion of Pinot Noir was left on the skins to impart a pinkish salmon color, important to our Rosé.
