Premiere Bulle Limoux Rose Brut

blog 75

The words ‘warm prosecco’ have been frequently used by politicians of late – to imply drunken chat and the drink to accompany it. A horrific thought.

A notch above prosecco and cava are the cremants of France. I’ve tasted my way around the Loire and am a big fan of the fizz produced at Bouvet-Ladubay in Saumur. From further South is this attractively packaged £11 pink fizz, made from Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir, in the traditional method. Good summer party fizz and it gives many rose champagnes a run for their money at that price.

Tasting notes: Pale, pink. Good texture. Fine, persistent mousse. Bone dry, delicate yeasty notes, hints of summer berries.
