A demi-sec sparkling red made in the Loire Valley from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes. Great served with chocolate or fruit based desserts.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/07/2016

Appearance

Clear, deep burgundy red with lively carbonation producing persistent small bubbles.

Aroma

Blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant with dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans.

Taste

Slight sweetness offsets light acidity and fruit tannins with blackberry, blackcurrant, mulberry and black cherry. Slight underlying charcoal-like minerality.

Aftertaste

Dry with blackcurrant fruit and faint charcoal.

Overall

Reminiscent of a brilliantly complex and balanced Kir Royal with berry fruit more concentrated than sweetness thanks to balancing acidity and fruit tannins. That said, this is demi-sec so a tad on the sweet side. Great value for money and great with chocolate desserts.
