Calvet was founded in 1818, making it one of the oldest French wine
brands in the world. At Surdyk’s, we have the pleasure of working with the
sixth generation négociant and direct descendent, Jean-Christophe Calvet, who imports a number of our French wines. This fun bubbly is newer to Surdyk’s, and is from a small and relatively new appellation called
Cremant de Bordeaux established in 1990.
Calvet Brut Rosé is made with ahand-harvested grape blend of 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot. After 8 weeks of fermentation in the bottle, the wine rests on its lees for twelve months, where it develops its beautiful, creamy mouthfeel. The nose suggests red and black fruits with subtle creamy, yeasty notes. The fine and persistent bubbles help to perfectly balance the creamy fruit flavors, leading to a vibrant, long finish. Wonderfully versatile, enjoy Calvet Brut Rosé on its own, with your next brunch, or as a base for a sparkling cocktail. Sante!
