Bouvet Ladubay is regarded by many wine lovers as the finest expression of sparkling wine from the Loire Valley. The house is owned by Taittinger Champagne and as such employs precisely the same wine making process as the Grand Marque itself. The grapes for the Bouvet 'Blanc' methode champenoise are Chenin Blanc, which has been grown in the Loire Valley prior to the Roman conquest of France. Bouvet source their grapes from 120 properties around Saumur - spread over an area of 15 x 30 kilometres. The notion of using such a diversity of vineyard sites is to provide complexity to the base wines. Domaine Chandon in the Yarra Valley employ a similar process. These 120 micro climates each provide the blender with base material that when blended together will create the sensation of considerable complexity. The art of blending is critical and at Bouvet the third generation of blenders from the same family are in charge - in fact they have been creating the blend for the last 60 years. Our shipment of Bouvet has just arrived and will bring much joy to wine lovers who remember our previous shipments.
Delightful pale salmon pink coloured base wine with good creamy mousse and very fine and persistent bead. The nose displays attractive notes of winter strawberries and light raspberry followed by subtle lees characters and confectionary. Creamy in texture the palate boasts a delicious flavour profile of winter strawberries and delicate raspberries intermixed with some yeast lees and confectionary. Clean dry finish. Excellent length with long winter strawberry infused raspberry, lees and confectionary aftertaste. A superb sparkling rose, perfect on a long summers day.
Drink over 1-2 years.

Re-Tasted, 23rd March 2004: The superb, translucent damask pink colour, over laid by salmon pink and mauve hues makes this wine a winner right from the start. Made from Cabernet Franc, the bead of this wine is the finest and most persistent. Subtle aroma of raspberry, winter strawberry and biscuit are evident on the nose. The palate flavours are refined, with strawberry and raspberry fruit flavours again appearing. Creamy texture followed by a long raspberry, lees aftertaste. A sparkling rose of great delicacy and perfect for watching the sun go down.
