External Reviews for Champagne Jacques Sélosse Substance Avize Blanc
10 bottles for tonight's takeout / For French bubbly at an affordable price look not to Champagne, but to the Loire Valley, the second largest sparkling wine-producing region in the country. The Marquis de la Tour France Rose Sparkling Wine is delicate and dry. Made by well-known Loire producer Remy Pannier, it's a blend of Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Syrah and Grenache. Rose petal aromas are followed with succulent rasberry flavors in this elegantly styled bubbly.
Affordable and Delicious Bubblies/ I served this wine as an aperitif to a group of my fellow Dames d'Escoffier at a recent meeting - this is a group of women highly educated in food and wine - without telling price. Everybody marveled at the gorgeous salmon pink color, the typical Loire Valley fines bulles or small bubbles. Delicate and elegant, with faint notes of berries and ripe fruit, and a good acidity that, as it enhances the taste of the grapes, prserves the wine from being cloying. Clean, crisp and refreshing: this wine competes with the best bubblies I've had, and you can't beat the price. Just don't tell your guest...

/ “This salmon pink colored sparkler blends Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Syrah and Grenache. It shows upfront fresh, fruity aromas of strawberry, cherry with an off-dry strawberry fruit palate. It has a short but flavorful finish. Pair it with strawberry shortcake.”
The Loire Valley has often been called the “garden of France.” This pastoral landscape, with its gently rolling hills and majestic châteaux, is the largest sparkling wine region in France, outside of Champagne. One of the best known names in fine Loire Valley sparkling wines is Marquis de la Tour from Maison Ackerman. Maison Ackerman, which has been identified with premium quality Loire Valley sparkling wines since 1811, is the Loire Valley’s single largest wine producer. Ackerman today has a fully fledged sustainable development approach based on maintaining the right balance between the social, economic and environmental aspects of wine production. At Ackerman, this means respecting terroirs, holding onto their personal values and pursuing a viable economic approach. Named for a 16th century tower (tour) which still exists today, “Marquis de la Tour” reflects a long heritage of sparkling wine production. It has been a welcome guest and the toast of the party at social gatherings and family celebrations, both formal and casual. Its handsome packaging projects a timeless, classic elegance and is a charming and affordably priced sparkling wine. Production Area Loire Valley, France Grape Varieties Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Grenache Vinification This sparkling wine is made from 100% Loire grapes. Because of its northern location, the grapes maintain a high level of acidity. After fermentation, a portion of the juice is removed and the rest remains in contact with the skins to produce a beautiful pink color. Consistency and quality are carefully monitored to create very fine bubbles. The dosage has been perfected to make a clean, fruity but dry sparkling wine of extraordinary quality at a very attractive price. Color A bright salmon pink with fine bubbles Bouquet Delicate and elegant with notes of strawberries and raspberries Taste Round and fresh with sweet berry notes, red currant and a long, fresh finish Alcohol 12% Serving Suggestions Served chilled. This sparkling wine can accompany an entire meal or be served as an aperitif.
Zartrosa. Feingliedriges Aroma nach Kirschen und Himbeeren. Im Gaumen feinperliges und dezentes Mousseux. Im Abgang dezente Hefenoten, Brioche sowie ein Hauch Edelbitterschokolade. Der „Brut“ animiert daher mit seinem eleganten Aromenspiel und der feinen
