Le Grand Courtage
Behold! A French sparkling wine that is every bit as pretty in taste as it is in the bottle. Le Grand Courtage was started by Tawnya Falkner, a remarkable female entrepreneur here in the states who saw the incredible quality for value offered in French bubbly outside of just Champagne. She rolled up her sleeves, moved to France, and collaborated with a world-class Champagne maker to craft her final cuvee. By featuring Le Grand Courtage in our wine club, we salute another fellow female entrepreneur in the wine industry who has a similar mission as ours: deliver incredible, well-made wines that don’t break the bank.
This sparkler was produced in Burgundy in Nuits St Georges and has undertones of Granny Smith apples, honeysuckle, strawberry & toasted brioche. The wine is crisp, light and refreshing with delicate bubbles and a nice hint of fruit on the finish to balance the dryness, yeast and acidity. Try it with savory hors d’oeuvres, popcorn, creamy pastas, spicy dishes, seafood, fruit based desserts or semi-soft cheese.
