Stephane Sérol "Turbullent" Sparkling Rosé
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Light, bright pink, with a frothy mousse Spicy redcurrant, blood orange and rhubarb on the nose. Juicy, expansive red berry preserve flavors are given a dry edge by a slow-building talc-y note. Manages to be both sweet and nervy, and finishes with very good thrust and lingering raspberry and strawberry notes. This would be great with stinky washed-rind or blue cheeses.
Delightfully fun, fizzy, fruity and sparkling Gamay wine from the Côte Roannaise, and father-son team Robert and Stephane Sérol. This is fermented without chaptalization, then bottled before completion to achieve carbonation.
