Gratien & Meyer Champagne Blend Saumur Saumur Rosé Brut the Wine Society 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Fine french dry rose sparkling wine. an easy-to-drink wine with a delicate pink tone achieved through a brief maceration of the Cabernet Franc and Grolleau grapes. A first-rate summer wine, best served at 6°C. Complements light meals, whtie meals and poultry. Also very pleasant as an aperitif. Percentage Grape: Cabernet Franc 75 % Grolleau 25% Soil: CAchalky subsoil, locally known as "tuffeau". The minerals in this soil play a vital role in creating wines with a fine sparkle. Another characteristic of this chalky layer is its ability to absorb the sun's warmth and to diffuse it during the night. Vinification Method: Selection of grape juices during extraction. Mastery of the choices of the yeast and the cellar master makes the blending of the cuvée.The second in-bottle fermentation enables the development of these caracteristics sparkles. Alcohol Percentage: 11.7 % Sugar Rate: 13-50 g/l

A Loire crémant crafted with the same skill and attention to detail as one of Champagne's most tradtional houses is guaranteed not to disappoint. An elegant expression of Cabernet Franc with a dollop of Grolleau, this mineral driven, dry rosé cajoles one's palate with crisp red berry fruit. Serve with fish course or fruit course, but this is a fine companion to fresh goat cheese.
