Tasting Notes

Outstanding sparkling wine from the Languedoc? Absolutely and resoundingly, YES! There will be those of you who scoff at the price of this wine, and claim that a sparkling wine set so low will never be worth any serious consideration. Well, those of you would be WRONG. One of the rising stars of the Languedoc, Jean Louis Denois makes exciting, world class wines that nonetheless remain amazingly inexpensive, owing to his location more than anything else. His vineyards sit in the very southwestern corner of France, at the foot of the Pyrenees, and he produces red, white and sparkling, all made from perilously low-yielding vines, vinified with as little interference as possible. The Brut Rosé is made entirely from Pinot Noir and is just as delightful as the blended "Tradition," with more bright red berry fruit character. A K&L staff favorite for parties and impromptu celebrations. 12% abv.

    Poised upon the glistening foothills of the Pyrenees, far from the grandiose heart of Champagne, the immaculate, low-yielding, organic vineyards of Jean Louis Denois continue to produce superlative wines for a third the price of their uppity northern cousins. Bright, fleshy and expressive, this Brut rosé is the embodiment of charm and merriment, with red fruits and berries that open lavishly upon the palate and finish clean and crisp and dry. A wonderful sparkler at a great price, guaranteed to deliver and entice!

    This neat little sparkling wine is what I like to think of as "baby Champagne". It is a great crowd-pleaser with bright raspberry and strawberry fruit. Nice, easy bead with a nice finish of light minerals and chalk.
    Top Value!

    High quality and a low price make this one of the funnest bottles of bubbles available! Made from 100% Pinot Noir, it has great structure and rich flavors of strawberries, raspberries and cherries. It has a rich, creamy mousse and a dry, crisp acidic finish. Credit to Denois for making good everyday bubbles a possibility!

    Another favorite is the Pinot Noir Brut Rosé. I always connect with this wine, with its light red cherry notes, spices and hint of cinnamon. The mousse is creamy and the finish long. This is great for any occasion.

    Jean Louis Denois makes exceptional sparkling wines. His Pinot Noir Rose is no exception. It has a nice pink color and energetic bubbles. There are bright juicy flavors and this sparkling wine is dry. Very festive.

    Delightful bubbly, brimming with strawberry and raspberries, still quite dry, but with a full flavor.

    Jean-Louis Denois' latest release of this 100% pinot noir sparkling wine is his best ever. Delicate and dry, with just a hint of red berry nuance and pinot spice, it finishes dry, crisp and clean. It is my go to sparkling rosé.

    This is always the first wine from Denois to disappear. Good mouse and great pinot flavor can you ask for more? Yes, and reasonably priced!

    Composed of 100% Pinot Noir, Denois' sparkling rose is made in the traditional method with the same care and attention given his other bruts. Also a direct import, this new rose is a real treat, with juicy strawberry and fresh watermelon aromas and flavors adding a whole new layer of fun to its creamy mousse and delicate honeyed toast foundation. A kiss of framboise adds impact to finish. A delicious and refreshing sparkler, this will complement many foods and bring an inspiring burst of color and flavor to any occasion!
