 > B&G Sparkling Rosé goes pink!

The new pink packaging of the B&G Sparkling Rosé is now much more premium. The shiny pink capsule is very elegant and impactful and the pink label allows easy reading for the consumers.
The quality of B&G Sparkling Rosé remains unchanged: it shows great thin bubbles, on the nose the wine reveals strawberry and raspberry aromas accompanied by gentle spice notes. On the palate it brings rich, fresh cherry flavours.
Of course it should be served well-chilled. Ideal as an aperitif or cocktail.

The new packaging will become available as per May 2013 in cases of 6x75 cl. The packaging of the B&G Sparkling Chardonnay remains unchanged.

 > Thomas Barton Réserve Saint Julien

Saint Julien is the new prestigious appellation that will be added to the Thomas Barton Réserve range. It was in Saint Julien that Hugh Barton, grandson of the founder of Barton & Guestier company, bought Chateau Langoa Barton and Château Léoville Barton in 1821, today still properties of the Barton family.

Grapes: Merlot 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 57 %, Cabernet Franc 8 %, Petit Verdot
Soil: Gravel
Winemaking: Handpicking, traditional winemaking methods (with 2 to 3 weeks of maceration) and 6 months ageing in oak barrels
Tasting notes: Thomas Barton Saint Julien has a nice ruby red colour. The nose is delicate with red fresh fruit aromas, accompanied by mint and smoky notes.
A complex wine with velvety tannins developing fruit aromas of cherry and blueberry, with a note of white pepper and a long finish.

Thomas Barton Réserve Saint Julien 2011 will be available in cartons of 6 x 75 cl as from September 2013.

 > Fleur de Vigne: new premium packaging for the bi-varietal pouring wines

An attractive bright label illustrating the name of the wine literally translated as "vine flower", a shiny screw cap for a quick opening, and of course irreproachable quality make these "Fleur de Vigne" wines the ideal house wine for bars and restaurants.

Fleur de Vigne wines are interesting and unusual combination of varietals with Grenache and Merlot for the red, and Colombard and Ugni Blanc for the white. They are both classified Vin de France.

Tasting notes:

Fleur de Vigne Grenache Merlot shows a brilliant ruby red colour.
The nose is fruit driven, developing intense red fruit aromas of redurrant and raspberry with some flaterring liquorice hints.
On the palate the wine is round and soft.

Fleur de Vigne Colombard-Ugni Blanc has a straw yellow colour. The nose is rich and aromatic mixing pineapple and exotic fruits. On the palate the wine is fresh and well balanced, with a fruity and refreshing aftertaste.

Both Fleur de Vigne wines are available in carton outershippers of 6x75 cl as from now.

 > B&G Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in a handy 3 Ltr Bag-In-Box

Lighter in weight than 4 bottles and very easy to use these impactful 3 liter bag-in-boxes of B&G Réserve Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay already meet a great success in Estonia.

The 3 Ltr "BIBs" fit in the door of the fridge and are an ideal serving for parties and barbecues at house, or for outdoor activities like sailing or a day on the beach.
