Monmousseau Rose d’Anjou
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Rosé d’Anjou with a nice strawberry “pop” to it and just that right amount of “grit” to be interesting.
Varietal Composition: 70% Cabernet Franc 30% Grolleau
Elaboration: The grapes are pressed right after being picked and only the first pressing, having more condensed aromas. Stored in vats, this wine is kept fermenting, without the skin, at low temperatures (57-59°F). It is bottled right at the beginning of spring so as to keep its freshness and bouquet.
Tasting Notes: A pale pink color, slightly salmon. light in alcohol, very aromatic with floral and strawberry aromas with raspberry and cherry blossom undertones. Fresh with an off-dry finish.
Monmousseau is without question the Loire Valley’s most famous producer of sparkling wines. The winery was founded in 1886 with extensive vineyard holdings above ground and 15 kilometers of underground tunnels for fermentation and aging below them. Cremant de Touraine is something of a house specialty, as the were originally responsible for the creation of the Cremant de Touraine category. We are proudly working with a broad array of sparkling wines from Monmousseau, along with still examples of Vouvray and Cabernet Franc.
