Total time in cellar is 36 months.
“Bulles” means bubbles in French and that’s exactly what you’ll get here: a fruity rosé sparkle of life and red berries! Wonderful aperitive wine, great for all kinds of celebrations while snacking on some nibbles.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Gaspard is one of Jenny & François’ house labels – wines that come from our exclusive cooperation with carefully selected winemakers from France and beyond. It’s Jenny’s great pleasure to bring you wines that are kinder to both nature and your budget while being very delicious, and these Loire Valley creations definitely tick all the boxes!
All the wines are made with the traditional and most popular varieties from this iconic region, from the fruity spicy Cabernet Franc to fresh citrusy Sauvignon Blanc or the beloved Chenin. The grapes are sourced from growers who work sustainably or organically (no herbicide) across different vineyards in the Loire Valley, are fermented with native yeast, spend a couple of months on their fine lees and then undergo only light filtration and fining. The joyful labels are the creations of a Parisian artist that Jenny met there. “Gaspard” is a traditional French boy’s name that means “bringer of treasure” – a fitting title for these easy-drinking gifts that keep on giving.
