Bouvet Ladubay is one of France’s greatest producers of méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine from the Loire Valley. The numerous castles that dot the Loire Valley are built using “tuffeau”, a local chalky limestone. The Bouvet cellars are housed in ancient tuffeau quarries, creating the perfect environment for aging wine. Bouvet sources its fruit from more than 100 plots in the Loire Valley, obtaining the best quality each harvest through its long-standing relationships with winegrowers. The salmon pink color of this brut rosé is obtained from the red Cabernet Franc grapes with a quick maceration on the skins. Produced in the méthode traditionnelle, this sparkling rosé is aged in the bottle on the lees for 9 to 24 months.

Salmon pink in color with fine, pinpoint bubbles, this elegant sparkling rosé offers notes of brioche, strawberry, and raspberry.

Food Pairing

About the Grape

Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc usually shows tart red cherry and wild currant aromas and flavors with an herbal, spicy character. In the Loire, esp. Chinon and Saumur-Champigny, this grape shows firm minerality.
