All my favorite things in one bottle: French, traditional method sparkling, Gamay. Can’t help but LOVE it. Flavorful yet soft. So fruity but there are nice biscuit notes, too. 🌷

Sourced from 100% 45-year-old Gamay Noir vines grown in granitic sand, hence the name, this unique sparkling rosé walks a very fine line between funk and fruit. Ripe strawberries and plump market raspberries are unearthed, once one gets past damp spring soil, that walk through the barn in sodden boots (and yes, I had a barn with animals, I know it well). Given that, its unusual countenance is a welcome break. It's more classically styled and delicate on the palate and a very nice companion to charcuterie. It's well worth mentioning that this was tasted at Bar Avignon, a wine bar in Portland, Oregon that I highly recommend.

So pretty! Petally red fruit, delicate yet quite lot of flavor, too.

Amazing elegance and refined red fruit the best fizzy gamay noir I've tried so I'll stick to my #2014 resolution… drink more bubbles! Best value for sparkling méthode traditionnelle

Not a huge rose fan, but this is really nice. Not too sweet. Good bubbles. Notes of raspberry and minerality.

Gamay! Not used to it and was initially taken aback by the forward nature of this rose’ bubbly. But it’s approachable and delicious w ample fruit at front and medium sized bubbles.
