Dry, fruity and fresh with an elegant sparkle. A fine nose with floral aromas and hints of red fruits. The "sparkling wine" from Domaine des Féraud - a rosé, of course – has been produced using the méthode traditionnelle (bottle fermentation). In this method, the second fermentation, and the subsequent shaking of the horizontally stored bottles take place in one and the same bottle. Originally, this process was known as the "méthode Champanoise", until the name was protected for sparkling wines exclusively from the Champagne region. The main wine of Brut Annrosé, which is added with sugar and yeast for the second fermentation, is a blend of our best rosé wines. The whole process of bottle fermentation and ageing takes 18 months.
Brut Annrosé is a wonderful sparkling wine for all festive occasions. A delicious, light and invigorating fresh wine that simply radiates cheerfulness and joy. As an appetizer, and amongst the numerous cocktail ideas using rosé sparkling wine, we recommend a Brut Annrosé with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. A very elegant version of "rosé pamplemousse" - the latest "must" in France at private parties, exhibition openings or even to toast in the New Year.
The gastronomy esteems rosé sparkling wine or champagne increasingly as versatile food companions and not only as an elegant appetizer. Dry, sparkling wine – such as Brut Annrosé - gets along with exotic spices such as saffron, cardamom, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg as well as cumin, coriander or turmeric. Curries with fruit or vegetable chutney or Tajines are simply wonderful in combination with a sparkling rosé. An excellent partner is steamed fish, perhaps flavoured with ginger. Amazingly positive is the combination with soy sauce. Last but not least: a sparkling rosé is always perfect for those meals for which beer is recommended such as sauerkraut, fried potatoes or savoury pancakes. Simply take Annrosé to your next picnic with roasted chicken, spicy sausages and freshly baked bread.
Sparkling wines do not marry well with fine dining - the carbonic acid crushes too delicate tastes - and very hot spices such as garlic or peppers.
Our dessert favourites to accompany Brut Annrosé are fresh, red summer berries, slightly tart dishes with blood orange or rhubarb and, of course, grapefruit sorbet.
The combination of rosé sparkling wine and cheese is not often found, but it works just fine, provided the rule is followed of proposing just one cheese and not a whole selection.Our personal recommendation is fresh goat cheese, a Saint-Nectaire or ricotta cheese with red fruits.
