Les Rocailles Brut Blanc

Sparkling

France

Savoie

Description

A true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps, Les Rocailles is owned and managed by boyhood friends and native Savoyards Guillaume Durand and Alban Thouroude, who purchased the estate and négociant business from Pierre Boniface upon his retirement in 2006. The wines have never been better at Les Rocailles!

Tasting Notes: This dry sparkler offers delicate green apple and floral aromas, with a touch of yeasty character.

Serve With: Enjoy as an aperitif or paired with canapés, cheeses, marinated vegetables, chicken, seafood (especially smoked salmon), or dessert!
