Brilliant steely pink color. Aromas and flavors of fresh lemon peels, mixed melon balls, honey drizzle, and spring flowers and coconut husk with a silky, finely carbonated, dry light body and a nuanced, medium-long finish displaying impressions of quartz-like minerality, sea salt, and edible flowers with fine tannins. Striking minerality, an elegantly fruity nose, and sophisticated texture will keep you coming back to discover new intricacies in this beautiful French wine.

Sparkling wine is a time-honored tradition in France. The most famous is Champagne, from the eponymous region in the northeast reaches of the country, but there are other excellent examples. These include sparking wines from Alsace, Burgundy and Loire; they are known as "cremant" or "mousseux" and are made in styles ranging from dry to medium sweet. They can be made in white or rosé styles, although there are a few red versions (Bourgogne Mousseux is the term for sparkling red Burgundy).

There are also sparkling wines made in regions such as the Jura, Rhone Valley and Bordeaux.
