Taste like a kids birthday party! Sparkles, pink and candy! But really... Cherry blossom and juicy wild strawberries. Yum.

An unusual N.V. sparkling red wine from the Savoie in eastern France. A blend of 80% Gamay with 20% Poulsard (local grape), deep salmon color with sweet berry aromas. On the palate sweet strawberry and cherry flavors that can be great as an aperitif or nice to accompany a dessert. Nice balance, low alcohol, 8%. Nice value.

Drank this after a delicious Indian cuisine and substituted nicely for a light dessert. Methode ancestrale.

Smells like wonderful rotting grapes. Color is vibrant and so is the mouthfeel. Sweet strawberry and cherries with that musty fermentation smell. Thanksgiving wine.
