Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
The grapes are hand picked. The whole cluster grapes are directly pressed in a pneumatic press with a long and soft pressing, hence the coral/ light pink salmon color. Cremant Rosé is made by the Champagne Methode. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle. Afterwards it stays on its lees for 9 months follow by the remuage and disgorging.
100% Pinot Noir
Yes, it's the Meg Ryan of Bubbly. It is light, clean, crisp. It will leave you amused and smiling, and when it's gone, you won't remember much about it - other than you really want to have it again. More seriously - it is a wonderfully somewhat sweet bubbly rose. It is remarkably crisp and clean - a perfect before dinner drink. It goes down easy, and leaves you wanting more. (My wife made me buy two cases - it's a perfect dinner party starter)
Strawberries and yeast on the nose, delicious berries with hints of toast in the mouth. Ripe creamy flavors move smoothly into a crisp, long finish. One of the best sparkling wines of any color for the buck, period.
I served this for Thanksgiving this year. We have served champagne and sparkling wines in the past but this one was delicious and fun. The rose color is festive, the bubbles are festive and it is flavorful enough to hold its own with all the flavor that are in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Very easy drinking, with just a hint of starwberry. Great for a little pre-dinner treat.
It was so light and fruity that it was very easy for the two of us to drink the bottle at lunch. Only tipsy for a short time, as there is not a high alcohol content, we were able to go back to reading very soon afterwards. Smooth and subtle. A fine wine.
drank half, gave the rest as a gift...phenomenal value
I regularly drink various kinds of sparkling wine and champagne. I tend to stay away from the higher priced marquis brands which i think charge for the name. This is fantastic. Had it at a restaurant, bought a case...and it was as good as I remembered. My wife and father-in-law loved it as well.
This is bubbly at its best. Beautiful soft salmon color matched with a lovely strawberry/raspberry nose, tight bubbles and a dry, clean finish. A darling of a wine and wine.com has a great price on it!
Lovely burst of bubbles in the mouth and very pleasant, lingering after taste. A nice dry sparkling wine that is best if allowed to warm a bit before being served.
2nd bottle update-Still really enjoyable. consistent with the first tasting. 1st bottle-On the drier side. Nice explosive bubbles in the mouth. Very nice.
First met this wonderful French sparkling wine as a starter associated with a multi-course meal inspired by Julia Child. Have enjoyed it many times since as my go-to rose sparkler. At parties, everyone (including myself) loves this little gem. Overall, a great tasty value.
Fantastic sparkling wine.
I ordered this for a wedding I was hosting. Everyone loved it. People were actually drinking and looking for more rather than ditching it. I have ordered a case to have on hand for those special times.
subtle fruits, dry finish, perfect toasting for any occasion.

Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But
one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins -
means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method -
Pinot Noir or Pinot...
