"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."
This can probably best be described as 'grandma wine'. Light, slightly sweet, sparkly--kind of like a wine spritzer. BUT, so much better than any wine spritzer I've had, and much better than the Strawberry Fields you may be thinking of...more along the lines of an Italian Brachetto. A desert wine, or a wine to have for brunch or an early afternoon tea. Ideally served with cheeses, lots of fruit and some sweet treats of chocolate, tarts and cakes.
