The Beautifully Colored Domaine de la Bergerie, Preambule

The La Bergerie estate was purchased in 1964 so that the Guegniard family could extend their vineyard holdings. Since 1979 Yves and his wife Marie-Agnes have managed the estate and increased it to the present size of 36 hectares.  The estate produces a large variety of wines including white, rose, red, sparkling, and sweet.  Yves has recently been joined by his daughter Anne and her husband David.  David has converted an old chai into a restaurant that features dishes which highlight the domaine’s wines.  If you are looking for a dry rose this wine is an excellent choice for a pre-dinner glass.  Jenn finds that it refreshes the palate and is not tiring to drink.  It is currently available at MacArthur Beverages.

NV Domaine de la Bergerie, Preambule, Cremant de Loire Rose – $18
Imported by Williams Corner Wines.  The gorgeous color is a vibrant ruby rose.  The nose is of fresh strawberry.  In the mouth the flavors start with delicate red fruit, dried herbs, and acidity on the tip of the tongue.  There are very fine bubbles that froth into creaminess midpalate as subtle flavors of dried floral potpourri develop.  There is dry acidity in the finish before the chalky aftertaste.  Nice.  *** Now.
