Story

Situation
Saumur area
Terroir
The grapes for our "Prince Alexandre" sparkling rose wine come from selected clay-limestone and tufa chalk terroirs located in the south of the Saumur area. Careful ageing in our cellars that gives its unique freshness and finesse.
Vinification
The grapes are hand picked and gently pressied. Cool first fermentation (18°C) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Maturing
The bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for at least 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Pretty pink colour with brilliant highlights.
Fine and persistent bead. An aromatic, dry Rosé offering a delicate bouquet combining wild strawberry and fresh red cherry aromas and flavours. On the palate, this Loire wine is creamy and elegant with a lively initial impression. Fresh, long aftertaste.
Food pairing
Enjoy as an aperitif or for any celebration (quiches, grilled salmon, paella, fresh fruit tarts, sorbet).
