PINK FIZZ! or The State of Sparkling Rosé

7pm  Monday  November 26th at The Wine School at l’Alliance Française

In Pink Fizz, we will focus in on, taste, and discuss only Rosé Sparkling wines from around the world but with the major emphasis on Champagne. We’ll look at how they’re made (all methode champenoise), how they get their color (a variety of ways), their styles and nuances, where and from what grapes they’re made, as well as pink fizz with food. We will taste through the diversity of dry pink bubbles as we look at a total of 14 wines. The wines tasted will be served in Riedel Degustazione stemware and a selection of cheeses and bread will be served.

The lineup includes:
Mercat Brut Rosé NV
Jean Baptiste Adam Cremant d’Alsace Rosé NV
Roederer Estate Rosé Anderson Valley – Sparkling NV
