Célange, Crémant de Bourgogne Rosé Luxe Brut, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: An elegant rosé crémant from Burgundy that is filled with the wonderful yeasty aromas you enjoy in Champagne but more-affordably priced.
Medium-intensity salmon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry, strawberry, brioche, bread dough and lemon citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied rosé crémant delivers bready, medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a yeasty, medium-plus finish.
There is midpalate complexity and balance between the fruit and yeasty character.
This is the rosé you bring to a party that tastes better than many rosé Champagnes.
Bottle Note: Since 1898, our family has been preparing the finest crémant wines through the continued use of its elaborate Méthode traditionnelle practices. Our Rosé Luxe cuvée, with its rich strawberry notes and refined effervescence, is one of the great specialties of our house. Ideal when served as an aperitif or accompanying fruit based desserts.
