In the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to taste many sparkling wines. They came in all shapes and sizes, in different colors, from all over the world. Some truly stood out, including Perrier Jouet Grand Brut, Egly Ouriet Vrigny and Taittinger Rose.
But honestly, only one was exceptionally unique. FRV 100 is a sparkling rosé from Beaujolais made in the style of Cerdon de Bugey: Fruity, slightly sweet, effervescent and just fabulous. Quite simply, this wine is delightful. Fresh, bright cherries burst from the glass, with flavors of sweet strawberries and slight hints of candy and bubble gum. I know it sounds silly but I absolutely LOVE this wine with crispy, salty fried chicken.
Think outside the box and enjoy!
