Costes Cirgues Cremant de Marinas Rose sulphite free wine
Costes Cirgues Cremant de Marinas Rose is an excellent organic sparkling Rose wine. The original Rose was produced sulphite free as are all their wines. However a tiny amount of sulphites were produced naturally during the secndary fermentation in the bottle, so this wine does state "contains sulphites" on the lable. The amounts are so low, and all are natural not a manmade additive, so it can be treated as a completely sulphite free wine.
We have been stocking this wine for years when we could get hold of some. Generally we could only get a couple of hundred bottles each year. This year we have far less than that so if you want some I suggest you order it quickly!
