Smooth and creamy, this is a soft, ripe sparkling wine, its acidity at just the right level of crispness. A round the core of acidity, green plum and grapefruit flavors give freshness and some richness. A great food sparkler.
Weighty Sauvignon Blanc, going for tropical flavors, very ripe yellow fruits and sweet acidity. The wine is rich, concentrated, keeping a mineral edge, showing some of the intensity of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. A delicious, ripe wine.
Still drinking well today, this salmon-hued rosé boasts complex aromas of herbs, spice and melon. It's round and slightly creamy-textured in the mouth, where the pepper and clove notes take hold, underscoring ripe melon and peach flavors. Spicy and fresh on the long finish, picking up a minerally note.
Fresh and fruity, with a hint of sugared doughnut. Bright pear and apple fruit makes for a nice wine, and interestingly, it closes with an earthiness that is much like amontillado and/or mushroom. Powerful and poised, and quite nice for a Loire Valley sparkler.
Fleshy and clean, with a blast of smoke and mineral tightening up what is otherwise a basic nose of stone fruits and citrus. Orange/tangerine is the dominant flavor profile, but there’s also some stony minerality to harden it up. Not terribly intense but good for a warm-vintage Sancerre. Imported by Dreyfus, Ashby & Co.
For this vintage, this is an impressively dense wine, packed with firm, solid fruits and layers of new wood. There are flavors of black currants, a touch of spice, and refreshing acidity.
Strawberry and herbal aromas, an attractive salmon hue and persistent bead give this rosé sparkler immediate appeal. Flavors of watermelon and toast combine with a light, frothy mouthfeel in this fresh, appetite-whetting wine.
A fruity sparkling wine, packed with fresh strawberries and balanced citrus acidity. It’s fragrant and crisp, and made from Cabernet Franc which gives an extra perfume. There is a delicious crispness to finish.
