Welcome to Bubbles Friday!
If this is your first visit, please click HERE to read about the creation, inspiration and history of “Bubbles Friday”. Otherwise, I’m happy to have you here and will get to the good stuff!
Than some sparkly wine, in festive glassware, on a summer Friday afternoon?
This Friday’s Feature
is Louis Bouilott Rosé Brut and is probably the BEST VALUE in a yummy, dry brut rosé that I have found, to date. I always keep a bottle or two chilling in my fridge and it never fails to delight and impress when I break out for friends who stop by.
The color is gorgeous and the abundance of tiny bubbles is so festive! At an average price of about $16.99 (!), it’s a most excellent value.
A little about Louis Bouillot Rosé Brut
From the Burgundy region, France, and specifically the Cremant De Bourgogne sub-region, this Salmon pink bubbly is made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay. On the nose it has aromas of light moss, developing into blackcurrent and strawberry. On the palate, the fruity notes are mixed with a nice acidity to create a lip-smacking deliciousness.
I am NOT kidding when I heartily recommend a fat, juicy burger of the finest grass-fed beef, grilled medium rare, and topped with crumbly, luscious, sharp blue cheese (recommend Rogue Creamery~can’t go wrong) and some crispy bacon.
OR…a little steak tartare and toast points would make a nice starter pairing. One of my favorite PacNW Chef’s, Vitaly Paley, does this to PERFECTION…check out his James Beard Award Winning menus at Paley’s Place.
