Larry Mawby: ‘Regent and Marechal Foch grapes that are hand picked, crushed, fermented on the skins, and carefully pressed. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, then fermented in a closed tank (the cuve close method). The wine is then filtered, dosaged, and bottled.' My notes: Here's the long-lost ‘sparkling burgundy' back on my lips. Yes, a dry red sparkling wine that works. Not only that, it embodies the attractive varietal characters of both foch and regent. Redolent of strawberries, with a hint of clove, this has abundant mealtime possibilities. 92/100.
