An excellent coral-pink, dry, sparkling Crémant de Loire rosé wine from the exemplary Vignerons de Saumur co-opérative in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. Curiously called 'Prince Alexandre', it is made from 100% Cabernet Franc, has an uplifting palate of crushed berries and is perfect for picnics and summer celebrations.

  • Producer: Vignerons de Saumur

What others think of this wine...

Malcolm Gluck - Condé Nast Traveller, 10th September 2014. says:

I cannot prepare food without a glass of wine beside me. This is, I find, especially pertinent when blackening aubergines. As the vegetable chars, it becomes aromatic and thus a spur to the thirst. It may seem fatuous to recommend a wine to drink while carrying out this operation, but I shall do so nevertheless. Cremant de Loire Mousseux Brut Rosé, an elegant sparkling wine from Saumur in the Loire, made from 100 per cent Cabernet Franc grapes, is a steal at £12.95 from Yapp Brothers of Mere in Wiltshire.

The Wine Gang - June 2014 says:

The dazzling pink colour makes this wine appear immediately appealing, and it doesn't disappoint on the palate. Fresh redcurrants and pomegranate with a zip and zing to the acid and plenty of fizz without being synthetic and foamy. This may not have the depth of flavour of a pink Champagne, but it's an ultra-relaible alternative traditional method French fizz to sup on this summer. 87/100.

Jancis Robinson MW - JancisRobinson.com 13th July 2011 says:

Mid salmon, clear glass and golden label. Very clean nose and pretty tart finish after lots of strawberry fruit. Decent enough for the price and not too aggressive fizz – no froth.
