A lively and refreshing sparkling rosé from France's Loire Valley.
This is quite a serious French sparkling rosé from the Loire that represents excellent value for money. Langlois-Château is part of the Bollinger stable so that's nothing less than you'd expect. It's made from 100% Cabernet Franc, which is normally reserved for still reds from the Loire, and whilst it's crisp and delicate it also has a real depth and character with plenty of raspberry, blackcurrant and vanilla flavours shining through and a very well structured palate that leads to the long lingering finish.
It's a perfect aperitif, naturally, but with food it's good to drink alongside seafood and shellfish in particular.
