Domaine Gueneau Brut Rosé

SKU #1110615

A sassy little blend of Gamay (85%) and Pinot Noir (15%) from in and around Sancerre, though it can't be called Sancerre as there is no AOC for sparkling wine in the region. A super cool, fun-filled nose of strawberry, framboise and spiced white plums. The tight core of bubbles makes this easy and fun to drink. My notes say, "I really like this." The newest and coolest direct import Sancerre from us here at K&L: Domaine Gueneau. Jerome and Frederique Gueneau started their Domaine back in the late 1990s. They started off with small beginnings and have grown over the times to meet the ever growing demand for world class Sancerre. We've been keeping a close eye on this estate and really feel like we have something special. Clean, bright and driven is the style here. And, they make a sparkling! How cool is that?

This sparkling wine form the Loire has a dark rose color and nice bubbles. It is dry and juicy with the gamay flavors really showing. Lively and delicious the Gueneau Brut Rose is great alone but will go will with turkey or chicken.

Strawberry, mineral, cranberry- very pretty and quite juicy. Nice bubble structure, with a dryness that suits many types of food! Party-time!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
