Cuvée Rosé NV

Tasting Notes

The mousse is creamy and fine, but the wine is dry and quite bracing with a long, fine finish of fruit skin, ripe stone fruit and light toast. Sparkling wines such as this, with their hint of sugar, bright acidity and carbon dioxide have all the necessary tools to age well for years. Although delicious and perfectly appropriate to drink this wine immediately, this wine will change and mellow through 2023.

VQA Niagara Peninsula




46% Pinot Noir
54% Chardonnay






10 grams/Litre

This is an LCBO Vintages essential

Suitable as the perfect aperitif to serve friends and family on arrival at between 5 and 8°C. This wine will pair nicely with shellfish or poached fish in pink sauces, smoked salmon or tuna tartare, charcuterie plates or antipasti. Although not sweet enough to pair with dessert, try with high fat creamy fresh and bloomy rind cheeses such as Upper Canada ricotta drizzled with honey and topped with toasted, candied nuts. Will marry nicely with fresh strawberries in season drizzled with a little aged balsamic or topped with cracked pepper.

“Ontario’s NV 13th Street Winery Cuvée Rosé Brut, VQA Niagara Peninsula offers outstanding value. This blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is a relatively deep coral hue and exudes aromas of strawberry cream tart. The entry is dry, crisp and cool with mouth-filling flavour. Fresh strawberry, butter pastry and vanilla custard immediately captivate. Then they slowly recede to let a touch of cool stoniness shine through and persist on the finish. Ripe, clean and well-balanced sipper. Score 93” Tasted November 2021

This pours moderately deep salmon pink. The nose is quite generous with cran-rhubarb, some matchstick sulphur and light brioche. It is light to medium bodied, nicely firm and dry with a touch of sourness. Just holds the line on austerity. Steely acidity. Excellent length and focus. Tasted October 2020

Vibrant and compelling with a hint of little raspberry jam and hibiscous. Elegant with a very good acidic balance and an appropriate dosage. Fairly deeply coloured - strikingly so, of a deep garnet hue. Tasted October 2020

2014 vintage Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay (as a red wine, which helps with the colour and fruit flavour). 7 g/l dosage. Good solid pink/red colour. Fresh and expressive with red cherries and nice texture. Lovely fruit expression. Supple, fruity style with a bit of sappiness. 90/100

Rick Vansickle, Wines In Niagara

The blend for this “vintage” of the non-vintage Rosé is nearly an even split between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a splash of Gamay for “visual effects,” and a low dosage of sugar that keeps this refreshing sparkler fairly dry (10 g/l). On the nose, look for aromas of strawberries, cherries, rhubarb and a touch of brioche and minerals. It has a dry, refreshing feel on the palate with a vigorous mousse that gives bounce to the bounty of red fruits through a super-charged finish. “It appeals to everyone for any occasion,” Colas says.
