Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé Cuvée de la Pompadour
Carneros, California


Madame de Pompadour, official mistress of King Louis XV, is thought to have introduced sparkling wine to the court at Versailles. Named in her honor, the Cuvée de la Pompadour is an elegant sparkling rosé made from certified organic Pinor Noir and Chardonnay. Its strawberry and rose petal aromas, fresh fruit flavors and fine bubbles make this Domaine Carneros offering an excellent aperitif and companion to turkey, cranberry sauce and yams.
