Le Grand Courtage Rose Brut | Excellent example of French Sparkling outside the Champagne region
Le Grand Courtage Rose Brut has bright aromas and flavors of fresh strawberry and raspberry. On the palate, a delicate balance of dryness and acidity lingers with flavors of wild berries and pomegranate alongside soft floral notes.
While this Le Grand Courtage Brut Rosé complements a wide range of foods, from savory to sweet. So, try it with spicy Asian dishes, risotto, BBQ, beef, lamb, duck, chicken, and prosciutto. Also works with seafood, pizza, soft cheese (like brie or goat), cheesecake, crème brulée, strawberry shortcake, and berry pie. Mix with fresh grapefruit juice for a refreshing brunch beverage, or add a float to a gin-based cocktail.
The Blend: The Chardonnay provides depth and structure, while the Ugni Blanc offers a natural acidity and freshness. The light-bodied Gamay lends vibrant fruit expression with a smooth texture. Grapes are sourced from quality terroirs in France, such as Burgundy and Beaujolais.
89 Points Wilfred Wong of Wine.com. Pretty and stylish, the easy-to-enjoy Le Grand Courtage Rose Brut is a fun, yet serious pink bubbly. Enjoy bright strawberries from the minute the cork is popped. Its off-dry finish makes it a lovely aperitif or cocktail beverage all by itself. (Tasted: October 6, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
