Domaine FL J’Adore Petillant Rose
WHY WE LOVE IT
Elaboration: The vinification process is in perfect harmony with nature and its terroir. The wines are labeled “organic agriculture,” a quality label which recognizes respect for biodiversity, the preservation of natural resources and the assurance of a high level of animal well-being.
The wine is produced using the traditional method. It is aged 9 months in vats on lees, then 16 months on slats.
Tasting Notes: Pale pink color, beautiful sparkle and persistent bubbles (fine). Bouquet of red fruits, wild strawberry on the nose. It is a Brut wine with a frank attack, offset by the roundness of the bubbles.

Philip Fournier Longchamps established Domaine FL by purchasing two estates in 2006 and 2007. The estate covers 43 hectares of vines spread throughout the Loire wine region on both sides of the river. It is a preserved landscape, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Grapes have been grown here since the 12th century.
