Format: 750 mL
Producer: Celene de Bordeaux
Alcohol: 12.0% Alcohol/Vol.
A true representation of both Cab Franc & Merlot in a sparkling rosé. Nice, dry, light & tasteful. Score: 92/100
Tasting Note: Bright copper to salmon in colour with fine mousse, good acidity, a medium+ intense nose & a fairly long length on the finish. Wine features redcurrant, black cherry, raspberry, mulberry, tamarind, blackberry & cassis.
Interesting Point: LCBO list the grapes used as Cabernet Franc & Muscadelle, however on the winery’s website, it Cab Franc & Merlot. And I confess, I bought this wine because I loved the bottle. Happy that the taste matched the elegance of the bottle.
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 5-7 years & pair it with Seafood Stew with Fennel & tomatoes
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
