Review: NV J Vineyards Brut Rose Sparkling Wine

J Vineyards, in California’s Russian River Valley, is repackaging its nonvintage Brut Rose sparkler, in order to make its pinkness better known. Composed of 64% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay, and 2% Pinot Meunier, it is aged for nearly three years before release. Residual sugar is 1.15%.

The color is lovely, a deep peach shade, and the nose is light with berry fruit. The body offers more depth, fairly heavy on the creamy bubbliness, with big red berry notes. Oranges are clear on the finish. That finishing acidity is bracing, inviting, and refreshing, just like a good rose sparkler should be.

  1. Featured it our wedding in New Orleans. It is a fantastic Rose especially considering the price in comparison to French counterparts.
