Le Grand Courtage Rose & Blanc de Blancs Bruts (Includes 2 Gift Bags)
Wine Gift Set Includes:
- Le Grand Courtage Blanc de Blancs Brut:
The perfect 'celebratory' wine, the palate is a harmonious balance of fruit, acidity & sweetness. With lemon, honeydew, and apple flavors that seemingly never end, this fresh bubbly is a versatile accompaniment to any cuisine or cocktail. Try this wine with savory hors d'oeuvers, buttered popcorn, seafood, creamy pasta dishes, fried chicken, spicy Asian cuisine, fruit based desserts, or semi-soft cheeses.
The Blend: Chardonnay imparts depth and complexity for the overall balance while Chenin Blanc lends citrus and hints of honey for a creamy texture. Colombard's higher acidity provides structure, length and a pleasant minerality that is supplemented by the Ugni Blanc's fruit profile.
- Le Grand Courtage Rose Brut:
A deliciously seductive rose, just a sip of this fruity, and balanced bubbly will leave you wanting more! Aromas of young strawberry, raspberry and notes of lilac and violets lead into a palate packed full of fresh and fruity flavors. Pair this beauty with spicy Asian dishes, risotto, BBQ, beef, lamb, duck, game, chicken, prosciutto, seafood, pizza or soft cheese (like brie or goat).
The Blend: The light bodied Gamay provides vibrant youthful fruit expressions reminiscent of wild berries and flowers amongst the French countryside on a warm summer day. The Chardonnay provides a depth and structure to the wine, while the Ugni Blanc offers a natural acidity and freshness.
Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with wines of equal or greater value.
American Tawnya Falkner took the leap, gave up her career in San Francisco, and moved to Nuits-Saint-Georges in Burgundy, France to nurture her passion for food, wine and travel. She spent the next year and a half creating sparkling wines which embody the French spirit of joie de vivre (joy of life).
As a child, Tawnya grew up in a 3-street town of 400 people surrounded by farms for miles. Many of her fondest memories are of backyard barbeques and Sunday dinners. That small town awoke a desire to see the world and the more she traveled, the more she realized that the table is the universal place where memories are made, and laughter shared. Le Grand Courtage, meaning ‘the great courtship’, is the culmination of her journey.
Le Grand Courtage sparkling wines express the convergence of old and new world styles, as well as French and Americans working together. Produced in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Burgundy, with grapes sourced from top French regions including Burgundy, Beaujolais and Loire Valley, the wines achieve the desired dryness, yeast, and acidity of traditional French champagne, balanced with a hint of fruit and floral on the finish.
