A demi-sec sparkling red made in the Loire Valley from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes. Great served with chocolate or fruit based desserts.
Sampled on 27/07/2016
Clear, deep burgundy red with lively carbonation producing persistent small bubbles.
Blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant with dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans.
Slight sweetness offsets light acidity and fruit tannins with blackberry, blackcurrant, mulberry and black cherry. Slight underlying charcoal-like minerality.
Dry with blackcurrant fruit and faint charcoal.
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.
