J. De Villaret Cremant de Loire Rose NV $19.99 ★★★★rose

The Loire Valley is France’s largest producer of sparkling wine outside of the Champagne region.  Most Cremant de Loire is produced around the city of Saumur and are blends of chardonnay, chenin blanc and cabernet franc. This super-affordable example has a very pretty salmon and rose gold colour, aromas of jam-filled pastry and soft,berry notes.  In the mouth it’s creamy and beautifully  balanced, full, generous and fruity.  Definitely a new favourite for me.  www.winesale.co.nz
