This sparkling wine is a blend of Folle Blanche, Melon de Bourgogne, and Chardonnay, with some Cabernet-Franc to add complexity and structure. The finished still wine is fermented in the bottle for a second time with champagne yeasts. It is then left to age on the lees, or dead yeast, for at least a year before shipping as finished sparkling wine. Its long lasting bubbles are the result of this second fermentation.
Bossard-Thuaud has an assertive fruity nose, the dry and citrus-like flavors of its grape varieties and a full, fresh finish that lingers. It is an excellent wine for celebrations and festive meals.
