April/May 2011: The nineteen ‘gems’ of white and rosé Crémants chosen for this latest issue of Gault Millau include the Vintage Rose from Rives-Blanques

“Better a good Crémant than a mediocre Champagne” says the authorative voice of Gault Millau in their latest April-May edition.  Bad champagnes dressing themselves up with important names such as Veuve Machin (The Widow Gadget) or Baron Truc (Tricky Baron) come no where close to this small selection of nineteen ‘gems’ from around the country.

The Rives-Blanques Vintage Rose was “A true invitation to the joy of smelling wine … with hints of of smoky tea and raspberry jam” they said.
