The Aldi Specially Selected Fleurs D’Eau Sparkling Brut Rosé is a $10.99 Aldi exclusive, it has been available at European Aldi stores for several months and has been well received. Basic information such as where exactly the grapes came from (location is significant for French wine), which grapes were used, and which Sparkling wine method they used is not given.
So, what do we know? The bottle has embossed glass which is a nice touch for a value-priced bottle. The name Fleurs D’Eau translates to water flowers. If you are familiar with Monet’s series of waterlilies painted at different times of the day, that will conjure up beautiful images.
Often French Sparkling Rosé wine features Pinot Noir, is that the case here? Is this produced in the Traditional Methos as in Champagne or the Charmet or tank fermentation as in Prosecco?
The Specially Selected Series seems to be Aldi’s version of Trader Joe’s Reserve wines, so this Bubbly should deliver more than its price tag would suggest. We will find all the information we will get concerning this Rosé in the tasting section. One hint Aldo may have given is they recommended pairing with Rissoto. Rissoto is Italian, not French, so this Bubbly may be produced in the Charmat Method. The alcohol content is a mild 11.4%.
The Aldi Specially Selected Fleurs D’Eau Sparkling Brut Rosé Tasting Note
The color is pale pink with a hint of amber. The nose is red berries and citrus with a little candy spice. The Aldi Specially Selected Fleurs D’Eau Sparkling Brut Rosé is light, delicate, and very tasty, the flavors hit your taste buds and disappear.
This Sparkling Rosé tastes like tart cherry, dried strawberry, lemon, pink grapefruit, and a light slap of sharp spice. The mid-palate offers cherry hard candy, but not candy sweet, and a hint of creaminess. The acidity does an excellent job of allowing the flavors to unfold and setting your palate up for the next sip. This is an excellent sipping wine.
