Mousseux

Mousseux is a 100% Merlot extra-dry sparkling wine made in the traditional method that is used in Champagne, where the second fermentation is completed inside of the bottle to trap the bubbles. The Merlot grapes are harvested at the perfect time to preserve the clean, acidic character. The 24-hour contact between the skin and juice during the first fermentation is what leads to the beautiful rose color and light red fruit flavors. Mousseux shows a deep pink color with salmon highlights and has small, elegant bubbles. The aroma and flavors are rich and fresh, reminiscent of cherry, raspberry and strawberry. The finish is clean, long and shows beautiful acidity and intensity of fruit.
