Grape: Syrah, Grenache
Located in Salon de Provence, Rivarose has made sparkling rosé in the region since 1909. This wine has the designation IGP Méditerranée, from just outside the AOP Provence. With almost 240,000 acres under vine, nearly half of the region’s production is rosé. Today, Rivarose Sparkling Brut Rosé is the first and the only IGP Méditerranée sparkling rosé available in the U.S. A gold-gilded round label adorns the bottle, which is in the traditional bowling pin shape patented by Provence winemakers in the 1920’s.
Tasting notes: A gorgeous bottle of Provence rosé with a fine and elegant sparkle. The nose offers up a fresh, soft scent of strawberry, raspberry and a little cherry. The mousse is mouth filling and fine. Flavors of red berries and a little spice. Delicious and refreshing. The only Brut Rose from the heart of Provence!
Pairings: Aperitifs or chocolate-based desserts.
