Bouvet Rubis Excellence

Saumur, Loire Valley, FRANCE
$23. 99
$287.88 Dozen
ABV: 12.5%
Closure: Cork

After many years of ownership by Champagne Taittinger, Bouvet Ladubay is once again fully owned by the Monmousseau family who have continuously run the business since their purchase in 1932. Bouvet Ladubay employs precisely the same wine making process as Grand Marque Champagne, delivering French sophistication at an everyday price. 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.
