Tasting Notes: Luc Belaire Rare Rosé

I like bubbles. And, despite three decades of avoiding anything pink, I really embrace anything in the the girly hue. It probably has something to do with being a permanent resident of Testosterone Land. I am totally outnumbered. All. Of. The. Time.

So, when I saw this sparkling rosé, I bought a bottle. I should have picked up two bottles!

Hailing from the Cote d’Azur region of Provence, this can't bear the name Champagne, but it has all the drama and elegance of a great bottle of sparkling wine.

I already mentioned that it's pink. But it's not a timid hue. It's rich, vibrant, and beautiful. 

The visual appeal is easily matched on the nose. I got strawberries and roses. Then you taste it and you're in bubbly bliss. Made from France's three most famous rosé grapes - Syrah, Cinsault, and Grenache - it has a perfect balance on the palate. My favorite part: it's refreshing but not too sweet.
