Wine of the Weekend

Joseph Cattin Brut Rosé Cremant d’Alsace

Technically, the first day of spring was March 20th… but Mother Nature seems to have missed the memo.  Summer wines are starting to show up in LCBO stores and now is a perfect time to stock up for the season.  The Joseph Cattin Brut Rose Cremant d’Alsace is the perfect wine for the warmer days on the horizon. 
The future looks rosy… or in this case, rosé.

Tasting Notes: Cremant Sparkling wines are made in the Traditional Methode just like Champagne.  The Cattin Rose Cremant d’Alsace is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes with aromas of cherries and black berries. The lively palate is framed by raspberry, strawberry, and lemon notes, with a creamy bubble and clean finish.

Enjoy With: Appetizers and light fare like grilled shrimp and summer salads with red berries. Also perfect for anything on the brunch table and for sunny sips by the pool when the warmer days come.

Style: A dry, medium-bodied, fruit forward sparkling rosé.

Terroir/Region: Alsace, France is known for long, warm autumns which allow the grapes to take their time when ripening, creating balanced and delicious wines. Off-dry and sweet wines are local specialties in Alsace as well as crisp Sparkling wines.

Producer: The Cattin family have been established in Alsace for 300 years and are masters of their craft. The family’s property touches all levels of the region giving them the ability to blend elements from throughout Alsace, creating dense flavours and great value.

Availability: The Joseph Cattin Brut Rosé Cremant d’Alsace will be available in the Vintages section of your local LCBO and for online ordering on April 2nd, but some stores may already have it on the shelf. Or if you prefer your bubbles in white, the Cattin Brut Cremant d’Alsace #281329 will also be in Vintages at the same time!
