WINEMAKER’S NOTES

In the tradition of Walter Schug’s home estate in Germany, we offer this Sparkling Pinot Noir as a celebration of the intense yet delicate flavors the Pinot Noir grape has to offer. Like a Brut Rose only darker, this “saignée method” bubbly has vibrant berry flavors and a brilliant red color rarely found in a sparkling wine. The cuvee of 100% Pinot Noir achieves its color and intense flavor through a 3 day “cold-soak” of juice and skins. Only the free-run juice is cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks, followed by a second fermentation in bottle, or “methode traditionelle” — the same as in Champagne. The dosage is kept to a minimum to allow the vibrant flavors of Pinot Noir to shine through. Rouge de Noirs embodies the true essence of Pinot Noir – a wine we produce “for the love of it!”

First produced in 1987, our Rouge de Noirs embodies the true essence of Pinot Noir – a wine we produce “for the love of it!”
