Bouvet Ladubay “Excellence" Brut Rosé NV
Loire Valley, France
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 cuvée is bottled for the second fermentation.
