Premium Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine

1688 Grand Rosé

 

Visual

 

Deep pink colour with delicate salmon-pink highlights.

 

Olfactive

 

A clean and fruity aroma with a dominant sensation of outstanding freshness.

 

Taste

 

The taste is above all fruity. The attack is subtle, mild and soft. The range of aromas of small red fruit like raspberry, strawberry and blackberry is rounded off with Muscat grapes. Delightful, delicate bubbles.

 

To accompany food

 

1688 Grand Rosé is ideal as an aperitif. This vintage will perfectly accompany starters like foie gras or prawn cocktail as well as savoury or sweet dishes (like guinea fowl supreme with salted butter caramel, duck à l'orange or turbot with grapes...). It will bring an unexpected touch of freshness to desserts.

1688 Grand Blanc

 

Visual

Yellowish with gold highlights.

 

Olfactive

The aroma is sophisticated and refined, the nose is both very fresh and complex with undergrowth fragrance.

 

Taste

 A fluid and well-balanced vintage. The attack makes a strong impression. Slightly acidic in the mouth with a rather robust finish. Notes of white and yellow fruits like crispy pear and quince support this fluid cuvee. Delicate clear bubbles.

 

To Accompany Food

This vintage will be very good as an aperitif. During a meal 1688 Grand Blanc is a perfect accompaniment to white meats (paillard of veal escalope, fillet of pork or chicken tagine) and fish (grilled sole, salmon en papillotte, roast monkfish…)

The Legend

 

Paris, 1688. On a beautiful spring day, a young man named Honoré became friend with an aged bishop native of the Châ-lons-en-Champagne area. Worn-down by time, the old man passed away a few months later. Before dying, he whispered to his friend’s ear the secret recipe for an elixir that he was the only one to possess. Honoré swore by all the saints that he would never disclose it to anyone.

History does not tell us what happened to him, or what he did with this weighty secret. But according to a legend, Honoré managed to seduce the prettiest girl in his neighborhood by following the old bishop’s recipe to the letter. Jealous men accused him of witchcraft. One morning, tired of being relent-lessly attacked, Honoré and his beloved disappeared. Nobody ever saw them again.

 

In 1928, a sealed envelope, yellowed by centuries gone by, was discovered during the restoration of an ancient Parisian building on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The dusty and almost illegible letter described with great precision a recipe with no alcohol based on red and white grapes. It was signed: Honoré. Back then the recipe was considered uninteresting and with no future. So the old envelope ended up in a box... before reappearing in 1988, on the stall of a secondhand bookseller on the banks of the Seine"
