Wine Enthusiast "Best Buy" 90+ Pts | Free Shipping on Orders Over $100
Calling all bartenders and mixologists. We are looking for creative individuals to conceive of a cocktail using Le Grand Courtâge’s (LGC) Blanc de Blancs or Brut Rosé. We want the creation to embody the French spirit of Joie de Vivre and living joyously as we are about elevating and celebrating the every day!
The *POP* of the cork is the universal sound of happy and sparkling wine is an extremely versatile cocktail ingredient as the bubbles add a nice textural element with the effervescence, and the acidity offers a great balance point. Our price and palate make LGC perfect for cocktails. We are on the hunt for the best sparkling wine cocktail made by America’s best bartenders. Do you have a cocktail you are particularly proud of?
