A Sparkling Gem from the Loire Valley

The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Rosé Corail hails from the enchanting Saumur region in the Loire Valley, France. Renowned for its sparkling wines produced primarily from Cabernet Franc grapes, Saumur offers a delightful alternative to Champagne. This particular rosé is crafted by Louis de Grenelle, a producer known for its commitment to quality and tradition.

A Feast for the Senses: Unveiling the Tasting Profile

Visual: The first impression is captivating. The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Rosé Corail boasts a beautiful deep pink colour, reminiscent of coral (fitting for its name!), with lively, persistent bubbles dancing gracefully in the glass.

Aroma: As you bring the glass closer, a delightful bouquet unfolds. Prepare to be greeted by a symphony of fresh red fruits like raspberries and wild strawberries, interwoven with delicate floral notes of iris and violet. Hints of minerality add a touch of complexity, hinting at the wine's origin in the chalky soils of Saumur.

Palate: The first sip of the Louis de Grenelle Saumur Rosé Corail is an explosion of refreshing flavours. The vibrant red fruit notes from the aroma translate beautifully onto the palate, offering a delightful balance of sweetness and acidity. The bubbles are fine and persistent, creating a delightful textural experience that is both lively and elegant. The finish is clean and crisp, leaving a lingering sensation of red fruit and a subtle touch of minerality.

Food Pairings to Elevate Your Experience

The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Rosé Corail's versatility makes it a fantastic pairing for a variety of dishes. Here are some suggestions to elevate your dining experience:

  • Light Starters and Salads: Enjoy this delightful sparkler with a summery starter like a goat cheese salad with toasted walnuts and a drizzle of honey, or indulge in a platter of cured meats and marinated olives.
  • Seafood Sensations: The bright acidity and red fruit notes of the Corail beautifully complement seafood dishes. Pair it with grilled prawns, pan-seared salmon with a creamy dill sauce, or even a classic moules marinières (French mussels in white wine).
  • Summery Mains: Take your picnic or barbecue to the next level with a glass of Corail. Lighter meats like grilled chicken or turkey burgers find a perfect match in this refreshing rosé. Vegetarian options like grilled halloumi with roasted vegetables or a summery pasta dish with fresh herbs also pair wonderfully.
  • Cheeseboard Delights: Don't neglect the cheese course! The Corail's refreshing acidity cuts through the richness of creamy cheeses like Brie or Camembert, while also complementing harder cheeses like aged Gouda or Gruyère.

Beyond the Bottle: The Art of Enjoying Saumur Rosé

The Louis de Grenelle Saumur Rosé Corail is best enjoyed chilled, ideally between 8-10°C. Its versatility makes it perfect for any occasion, from a casual afternoon gathering to a celebratory brunch.  For a touch of elegance, serve it in flute glasses to fully appreciate the delicate bubbles.
