Les Rocailles Caprice des Rocailles Rosé

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: Produced entirely from Gamay, this sparkling rosé is a wine of immense charm, offering ripe strawberry/raspberry aromas and a refreshing acidity to balance its subtle sweetness.

Serve With: A versatile wine, it can be enjoyed on its own, or paired with your favorite desserts – it marries especially well with dark chocolate, fruit tarts, tortes, fruit-topped cheesecake or Tiramisu.
