Non-Vintage Langlois Brut Rose Cremant de Loire_lowres


$25 Retail

Since Beaujolais Nouveau goes with just about everything, it's good for Thanksgiving dinner, but a better choice might be a sparkling rose. This wine has a superb pedigree (Maison Bollinger is a majority owner) and a magnificent vineyard, production facility and cellars on slopes overlooking the Loire River in France's Anjou-Saumur region. Made from 100 percent cabernet Franc, this excellent wine is made in the methode champenoise, aged on its lees and undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle. In the glass, the mousse yields pleasant yeasty aromas with subtle hints of red berries, brioche and pie spice. On the palate, taste red currant, raspberry, cranberry, strawberry and citrus notes. Buy it at: Dorignac's. Drink it at: Galatoire's, Dijon and Borgne.
