Sparkling Wine | Rose
Henri Champliau Wild Miss Methode Ancestrale Rose Demi-Sec Sparkling Wine has been produced from 100% Gamay from Beaujolais. Henri Champliau is a family-owned sparkling wine producer in Mercurey, located in the heart of Burgundy's Cote Chalonnaise region.
The Ancestrale method captures the carbon dioxide of the primary fermentation in the tank. When the fermentation reaches 7.5% alcohol, Alexandre drops the temperature to -2.0 degrees Celsius, halting the fermentation and capturing carbonation and any unfermented sugar. It is then bottled with an addition of sulfur dioxide.
The Wild Miss Methode Ancestrale takes its name from the first thoroughbred filly that Henri Champliau bought in Deauville, Normandy. In 1955, she won the Prix Vermeille at Paris Longchamp. Alex Graffard describes the flavor of Wild Miss as a delightful strawberry, but one that still has some acidity. It has a rosy robe, a fine and very dense foam with notes of raspberry and cherry. They finish with a feeling of gourmet pleasure lightened by the fresh acidity of the fruit.
This Wild Miss Methode Ancestrale Rose Wine has bottled at 8% alcohol by volume. A Demi-Sec Methode Ancestrale like Wild Miss can be easily paired with savory dishes that feature fresh fruit such as sliced pork with plums or pierogi filled with cherries. It is a fun and delicious wine to drink on its own and is perfect for parties or backyard barbeques. Enjoy!
