Normally $16!!! Bouvet ("boo-VAY"), brings together the best of TWO worlds: sparkling AND rosé! The price/quality ratio here is off the charts. This is one of those wines that looks great in the glass, drinks well on its own (especially on hot days like the ones we've been having) AND pairs well with food.
100% Cabernet Franc. Made in the Traditional (Champagne) Method. Bouvet-Ladubay sources its fruit from more than 100 plots in the Loire Valley, obtaining the best quality at every harvest through its long-standing relationships with winegrowers. Grape pressing is monitored in the vineyards; color is obtained with a quick maceration of the red Cabernet Franc on its skins. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel, then the wines are blended and the cuvÃ©e is bottled for the second fermentation.
Bright salmon pink in color with fine bubbles and a pleasant mousse. The fresh raspberry, red currant and peach on the nose is given structure on the palate with black currant and quince, and fine herbal piquancy.
Excellent with grilled fish, chicken, pork, burgers, tacos,..
