Nothing, besides rose-colored glasses and the original Edith Piaf song, spells “La Vie en Rose” like Rosé wine, and better yet a Rosé Champagne, or a Sparling Rosé! This particular one, Jacqueline Leonne Rosé Sparkling Wine was a happy surprising find for a holiday toast. Made in the traditional Méthode Champenoise, this sparkling rosé is indeed French-inspired, American-made.
The label reads: “Jacqueline Leonne is an exceptional sparkling wine made in the true Méthode Champenoise style. 100% Pinot Noir, this crisp, food-friendly wine is perfectly effervescent with lavender aromatics, berry flavors, and a vivacious, refreshing finish. French-inspired, American-made.”
I especially liked that it is crafted by a woman called Jacqueline Leonne in Albuquerque, New Mexico using the French method (although sold at many wine stores, I found mine at Total Wine, the actual winery and cellars in New Mexico were introuvable), the antique pink floral label and marketing is alléchant with all the right words ie. Méthode Champenoise and French-inspired, American made and of course, I enjoyed tasting this unpretentious crisp rosé bubbly with raspberry notes and a pleasant champagne-like finish at 12% alcohol by volume content.
Perfect for a festive toast or anytime for l’apéro at a budget-friendly cost under $15 (!)
