Named for Madame de la Pompadour, Louis XV's great paramour. An influential tastemaker in the matters of art, architecture and philosophy, it was she who first introduced sparkling wine to the court at Versailles and is famous for having said that "Champagne is the only wine that a woman can drink and remain beautiful." Has aromas of wild strawberries and roses with hints of peach. It is a wine of great balance and has a superb affinity for food. Foods that pair exceedingly well with the Rose are duck and salmon. Also goes well with dessert, such as fresh berries.
88 Points-The Wine Spectator "Pale copper in color. Smooth, with a rich, creamy texture underlying the rose petal, black cherry and floral notes that turn delicate with a hint of citrus."
