Regarded by many as the finest expression of sparkling wine from the Loire Valley.

For many years the house of Bouvet Laudubay was owned by Taittinger Champagne and as such employs precisely the same wine making process as the Grand Marque itself. This is France's equivalent to sparkling Shiraz. Many don't know it, but Australia actually pinched the idea of Sparkling red from the French. Made from Cabernet Franc, Bouvet offer a delightful alternative interpretation that's in a lighter, drier style. Produced from Cabernet Franc this sparkling red pours with an excellent purple tinged frothy mousse that shows good hold. Dark ruby red base wine colour with very fine bead showing good persistence. The nose shows good lift with scents of ripe plum and blackcurrant dominate followed by some delicate toast and spice notes. Medium bodied the palate is filled with rich luscious blackcurrant and dark plum flavours along with some toast and a touch of spice on the dry finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Medium to long ripe blackcurrant, plum and spicy toast aftertaste.
