Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Brut Rosé (2013)

Winemaking and Aging
The 100% Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked into small 40kg crates with careful bunch selection in the vineyard. Whole cluster grapes are cold soaked for 24 hours and then gently pressed. From harvest to pressing extreme care is used in handling the grapes to avoid any excessive crushing or brushing. Only the first most delicate pressing, called the Cuvée, is used. 5% of the juice is barrel fermented in used French oak. The base wine was bottled July 2014.

Secondary fermentation took place in bottle as per the traditional Méthode Champenoise. The wine was left in bottle with the lees for a minimum of 4 years in the underground cellar at Chateau Frank. Each bottle is individually disgorged, corked, crowned, and labeled by hand. The month of disgorgement is listed on the back of each bottle.

The Wine
Delicate aromas of freshly baked bread, asian pear, green apple, fresh strawberry, sour cherry, and a touch of tangerine.. Leading with a fine mousse, the mouthfeel is fruity and profound with mineral notes, creaminess, strawberry, and pineapple. Long crisp apple finish.

95 Points Best of New York - American Wine Society

90 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine "Coppery pink and luminous in the glass, this pink sparkler has a scent of strawberries and a fine mousse. The texture is marked by a slightly pithy edge, and stony, chipped-rock minerality on the finish. Pair with salmon en papillote. (240 cases)"
