16 November French Sparking Rose - Limoux Style November 16, 2017By Savour Wine & Cheese General, Reviews Savour Wine & Cheese, Wine 0 Domaine J.Laurens No. 7 Elegant, Flavorful Rosé Bubbly We searched all over Burgundy, Alsace and the Loire, and when we found this sparkler from Domaine J.Laurens in Limoux in the south of France we knew right away that we'd found the bubbles to get the party started. La Rose No 7 is flavorful - pale cherry in color with delicate bubbles and a fresh dry, not too sweet style- it's a sin to drink this only on special occasions. In fact, it even won a Bronze Medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017: "Delicate floral and cranberry aromas. Lengthy strawberry and cranberry flavours, with a crisp acidity." Domaine J.Laurens, Cremant de Limoux La Rose N°7 Sparkling Rosé $24.99 per bottle Does the thought of a glass of bubbles make you giddy? It certainly does for us. After all, sparkling wines lets everyone know something wonderful has just happened - or is about to. The great news is that Champagne is only one kind of sparkling wine made in France. In our searches for the best wines and best values we often end up at the source and in this case Limoux in the south of France. Limoux is the original source of sparkling wine in France. While Champagne made bubbles famous, Limoux started the trend 150 years earlier in 1531. La Rose N°7 is a cremant made from 60% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin Blanc and 15% Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir gives the pale cherry color but also adds a certain fullness to the wine, which boasts a palate of light red fruits. The bubbles are delicate and the style is fresh and dry, not overly sweet. The grapes are entirely hand harvested. In France, it is common for dinner parties to start with a glass of sparkling as an aperitif, serving both to stimulate the appetite and set a festive mood. Sparkling wine is an always-appreciated gift, it says "congratulations!" with unparalleled class, and keeping a case or two on hand makes for many a spontaneous celebration. All good things. Put a little sparkle in your wine drinking, without spending more than you would on a regular bottle of wine, and without sacrificing flavor. Life is short, why wait to celebrate. - Cynthia Hurley French Wines To Order: Call the store at 978-282-1455 with your name and the quantity you want to reserve.
