Calvet Cremant Brut Rose Cremant De Bordeaux
Calvet, one of the oldest French wine brands in the world, was founded in 1818 by Jean-Marie Calvet. Eldest son of Dr. Gabriel Calvet and Anne Seriziat, Jean-Marie was born in 1789 in Anse, a small village north of Lyon. From his mother, whose family owned vineyards in Tain-l'Hermitage in the Rhone Valley, Jean Marie inherited a passion for wine, founding Calvet in 1818 to commercialise the family's wines. As Bordeaux was one of their biggest markets (Bordeaux negociants had the particular practice of blending Hermitage wines with Bordeaux wines to give the latter more color and body), Jean-Marie and his son Octave built warehouses in Bordeaux, opened an office in 1849, and expanded to Burgundy in 1870, to become the largest wine company in France in the 19th and most of the 20th century.
Brilliant salmon robe. Elegant nose of raspberries and cassis. Very fine and persistent pinpoint bubbles that tease the mouth and lovely finish of crisp, round, fruity flavors.
Enjoy Calvet Brut Rose any time as an aperitif, cocktail blend, brunch libation or at any cause for celebration.
