Introducing BLT's Wine of the Week (No.11)

Les Valseuses
Domaine de l’Oubliée

What better way to welcome in 2013 and the reopening of Bistrot Les Tontons after the holiday closure other than with a fresh sparkling wine!

This week Gérald has selected 'Les Valseuses' as his wine of the week, a delicious dry sparkling rosé produced by Xavier Courrant, an organic winemaker and owner of Domaine de l’Oubliée.

Keeping in the spirit, that is Domaine de l’Oubliée, ‘Les Valseuses’ has been named after Bertrand Blier’s 1974 film whose three principle actors included Gérard Depardieu, Patrick Dewaere & Miou-Miou.

The cabernet franc used to create ‘Les Valseuses’ are harvested by hand and pressed to create a pretty salmon coloured sparkling wine which boasts an abundance of fine bubbles, perfect to toast 2013 to!

Happy New Year !
