Winemaker's Notes:

A vin mousseux de qualite, this bottle fermented rose is made from Loire Valley varietals, notably Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is fruity and complex; a great value! Our rose obtains its brilliant pink color by doing a longer pressing of the grapes in a pneumatic press. The juice then undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being put in bottles to form its bubbles through the methode traditionnelle. It is aged for a minimum of 9 months to ensure that the lees impart the maximum aromas and finesse to our wine.

About Grandin:

In 1883, Henri Grandin, a lawyer and wine lover, married Mademoiselle Pouillet de Limesle whose family owned Les caves de La Bouveraie, a domain in the Loire Valley. Its cellars were in what used to be Louis XIV’s royal glassworks in the magnificent Château of Ingrandes-sur-Loire. In 1886, he launched the elegant sparkling wine that today still bears his name, Henri Grandin. His wines quickly gained renown, both in Paris and internationally. Today, Grandin is still producing high-quality sparkling wines that are sold worldwide. They are currently made at the Boisset family’s state of the art sparkling wine facility in Nuits-Saint-Georges in Burgundy, where very strict standards are enforced to ensure Grandin’s signature style and excellent quality are assured year after year.
