The Louis Bouillot ‘Perle’ series is exceptionally well-crafted for its price and all of the wines are recommendable. I’ve picked out the Rosé Perle d’Aurore, though, as rosé is something of a Bouillot speciality (over a million bottles are produced every year) and it’s a wine which isn’t shy about its burgundian identity. “We want,” says Marcel Combes, “vinosity above all, almost a touch of tannin, with what you could almost call a compote style of fruit.” Autumn red fruits are there on the nose, but in a soft and understated style; on the palate, by contrast, those same notes reappear in an undeniably vinous, resonant and firmly stated manner. This is a true mealtime Crémant, based on a blend of 70 per cent Pinot and 20 per cent Gamay with 10 per cent Chardonnay, the fruit principally coming from the Châtillonais, the Côtes du Couchois, the Hautes Côtes and the southern, limestone-soiled sector of Beaujolais, 90.

Gentle strawberry fruit fills this soft rosé, its zesty finish keeping it clean. A fine aperitif.
Full, ripe wine, layered with fruits and a dry, more mineral core. The wine has good depth of flavor, strawberries, red currants and a citrus cut that keeps the wine fresh at the end. (RV)
Tea rose, ground spice and orange zest accents lace this firm rosé, with crunchy white peach and blanched almond flavors on a lively, open-knit palate.

All this for $14!!??!! This is a easy-drinking delight. Nice color, light, fruity strawberries on the nose and creamy strawberries on the palate. The bubbles really create a great creamy texture that fills your mouth and brings a smile to your face. I said it once before but it bears repeating: All this for $14!!??!! It was a great aperitif before Thanksgiving dinner: Watch the webisode at www.wineexpedition.com.

We served this sparkler along with Jean Louis Denois Brut NV to for a wedding cocktail party of 50. The guests were uniformly raving about these wines saying they don't usually receive this kind of wine quality at a large party...one guest asked me if I was able to keep my bottle price under $45! These are exactly the kinds of compliments I hope to hear...and why I shop often at K&L.

Not only our staff, but many of our customers, are blown away by this sparking wine from Bourgogne! It has a great balance of richness and fruit that will please any palate. A winner of a rosé for anyone! Perfect with a baby lettuce salad with fresh herbs, grilled green beans and salmon!
