Patrick Bottex Vin du Bugey Cerdon La Cueille Rosé
|Region||France, Savoie, Vin du Bugey|
Ever so slightly sweet, it makes a delightful party wine... Vin du Bugey-Cerdon is an unusual non-vintage sparkling red wine from the Savoie in eastern France. A blend of 80% Gamay with 20% Poulsard (a local grape), Patrick Bottex's 'La Cueille' is a deep rose in color with a lovely taste of wild strawberries. Ever so slightly sweet, it makes a delightful aperitif, or party wine. And with just 8% alcohol in it, you can feel free to open a bottle for an afternoon dessert fest. Perfect for garden parties. Pair it with strawberry shortcake, cookies and even soft, ripe cheeses.
Lightly sweet, yet balanced by tangy acidity, this is bursting with berry flavors. A light spritz makes it dance. A good party wine.
