Beyond the Label
Fine mousse, lemony freshness with lingering strawberry hints
Sparkling wine is a speciality of the Loire and with examples such as this delicious pink fizz on offer, you can see why. Abbesse de Loire Rosé is made in the exact same way as Champagne, just with different berries. In this more southerly location Grolleau and Cabernet Franc are the stars. Following tradition, the all-important secondary fermentation takes place in bottle, lending finesse and yeasty complexity to the creamy red fruit. The juice is drawn off the skins early enough to ensure a pale pink hue, but long enough to lend a lovely concentration of fruit and a bite of lemony crispness. Add the fine bubbled mousse and you have an irresistible sparkler to rival the renowned fizz of Champagne (and certainly at a better price!)
"A great alternative to Champagne. Not quite as dry as Champagne but very palatable and easy drinking"
