Louis Bouillot Sparkling Burgundy Red France Burgundy
Delicately fresh and lively with fine bubbles, this fruity, strawberry and blackcurrant-infused sparkling wine offers delightful acidity and a creamy texture. Made from a combination of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, *it is an appealing, dry sparkling Rose.* "Louis Bouillot's Perle d'Aurore Rose Cremant de Bourgogne is among the best...This brut nonvintage cremant - a French sparkler made outside the Champagne region - is a masterlful blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Look for a floral scent, tiny bubbles and a rich strawberry flavor."*-- New York Times*
Domaine Louis Boillot was founded by Burgundy winemaker Louis Boillot and wife Ghislaine Barthod in Chambolle-Musigny and Volnay. This venture began in 2003 when he left the family business shared with his brother and father at Domaine Lucien Boillot in Gevrey-Chambertin. Grapes are grown in top quality vineyards, blended together to produce impressive wines indicative of this prestigious region.
To me, this is one of the best values in Sparkling wine out there. If you don't want to pay huge prices for a rose champagne then this is a great alternative. Big strawberry and raspberry flavors, bright acidity and a nice dry finish.
Clear strawberry in color, with lots of big bubbles, this wine didn't grab me. There was little bouquet, and a kind of tart bitterness on the finish. Very dry and crisp, but not something I'd buy again. Prefer other bubbles (prosecco) at this price point. Disappointing.
Great value rose sparkler from Burgundy. Not sure of the method used here, but fairly certain it is not methode champenoise as it does not say so on the bottle. Beautiful, clear pink color with large robust bubbles. Floral on the nose. The palate has nice strawberry and melon with some lemon chiffon and cream. Nice dry finish. Exceeded my expectations.
This a great value sparkling rose. The tannins and pops of berry are well balanced with the acidity of this dry sparkler.
