Reviews and Ratings

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A fun sparkling rosé.…
Presentation: Very girly, not that that’s a bad thing
Appearance: Medium salmon
Nose: Light nose, with notes of yeast and minerals
Taste: Dry, medium-full body, high acidity, low tannins, with nice mouth feel, tiny bubbles like mousse or foam that tickles the mouth, grapefruit and tangerine rind, and floral notes
Finish: long on the rind
Overall impression: A fun sparkling wine for your mouth. It is approachable and would serve well as an appetizer for a Sunday brunch or evening event or celebration. Great value, too.
Value: 5/5
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A delightful strawberry rhubarb, semi-dry sparkling wine. Would pair great with a summer day or sitting out on the porch on a warm summer evening. Could also be perfect for a Christmas or New Year's bubbly. Not bone dry and not super sweet; this one will please a crowd!

Tasted November 19, 2017
Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The prettiest delicate pink bubble starts with a slightly shy nose but makes up for it on the palate which is full flavoured strawberry and watermelon with a lovely grapefruit finish. A blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay, it is a total bargain is you are looking for a classic bubbly style but don't want to spend on real Champagne. Enjoy with canapés before your holiday meal. @wrightwineblog
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale delicate soft salmon colour with fine bubbles. Soft raspberry and fresh apricot aromas with a hint of sesame seed. Lovely mouse with flavours consisting of white cherry, nectarine, and tart strawberry. Medium acidity, light body with a creamy light finish. Bubbles foam into a delectable mousse that lingers. Fabulous mouthfeel. Off dry 15g/L. Pair with light cheeses, salmon terrine and scallops. Outstanding value! 91 points November 19, 2017
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Think strawberry rhubarb pie in a glass! This pretty pink bubbly has the aroma of strawberry followed by the more tart flavours of rhubarb and citrus. Persistent bubbles and an overall dry nature. Great on its own or paired with white fish or poultry. Tasted November 19, 2017.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nice smoky hints to accompany the strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb flavours. Fun for parties. 90 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Striking pink colour with fabulous foamy and persistent mousse. Quite a full-throttle Cremant with loads of flavour - the Gamay element very evident in the ripe cherry and strawberry flavours. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the other two grapes in this blend, although the proportions are not declared. Very quaffable and a great party fizz. To be enjoyed on its own.
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I love sparkling wine! Bonus, it's pink, too. Nevertheless, this wine does have some gravitas - it is well-made, medium-bodied, dry and yeasty with a good amount of fine bubbles. It has notes of strawberry, and dew melon with a touch of cranberry.

I'd love this with crab cakes served with a sriracha aioli.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Floral, crisp and refreshing. Lovely notes of field raspberries, cherries, honey crisp apple and a long juicy pink grapefruit finish. Enjoy this refreshing light-bodied value-priced bubbly with Thai shrimp spring rolls. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light and refreshing with generous mousse- and very pretty in the glass. Distinctive notes of strawberry, raspberry, field flowers and hint of peach. Almond notes with the finish. Pallet is crisp and clean with nice acidity. This could be your Christmas party bubbly! Pair with smoke salmon or other seafood appetizer. Tasted: October 2017
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous colour - pale pink with an orange hue. Strawberry, red currant and yeast aromas. Fresh ripe fruit flavours. Slightly off dry but the crisp acidity balances everything out. Have tasted this sparkling twice and love it even more the second time.

A pretty aperitif for the Christmas holidays! Tasted November 19, 2017.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A bright nose of field strawberries, raspberries, and a hint of floral, persistent mousse and bone dry. Enjoy on its own or with light appetizers or salads.
Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pink bubbles with a frothy mousse! Strawberry and rhubarb notes with zesty citrus on the nose. Refreshing and peppy with some pastry notes on the finish.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Orchard apples, roses and blossom abound on the nose and palate of this lovely sparkling. Refreshing with some interesting flinty notes on the finish. This could be a party sparkling or brunch/lunch choice. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Ruth Blakely WSET 3, FV Sensory 2 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous salmon coloured sparkling wine with a fantastic trail of fine bubbles. Shy nose of stone fruit. Clean on the palate, medium acidity and a short finish. Well made, not spectacular but well made and a good value.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Good balance between fruits and dry. A nice summer sipping sparkling rose that can pair with salad or white fish dishes
Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Pretty delicious in pink! Foaming pink bubbles greet you upon pouring this rosé. Full on strawberry both on the nose and tongue, with hints of green apple as well. Nice dry finish. Patio weather is calling.

Cave de Lugny Brut is a Crémant de Bourgogne Rosé made in the Traditional Method from Pinot Noir wine grapes. This sparkler is bone dry with wild strawberries, pink grapefruit and soft citrus on the palate. Great value under $20 for this crémant. - Community Wine Reviews
