Gratien & Meyer Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé
Crémant de Loire A.O.C.
A blend of 40% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Chenin Blanc.
The juice for this wine is carefully selected for pressing and the choice of yeasts is among the finest. As tradition imposes, fermentation is slow and bottle ages for 12 months in limestone cellars located directly beneath the vineyards for over one year with the temperatures kept constant at 12°C year round.
By law there must be a minimum of one year aging for a cremant, however, Gratien & Meyer allows over 3 years for its Crémant de Loire, well above the legal one year ageing. The brilliant pink color comes from a short maceration of Cabernet Franc.
Pink, salmon in color with fine bubbles.
The bouquet suggests strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrant.
The palate is refreshing, creamy and balanced with a hint of red fruits.
This cuvée is best as an aperitif or paired with fish, white meat and all types of dessert.
