Price estimate: Mid twenties (Bob picked it up and could not remember the exact price)
Tasting notes: Medium yellow color in the glass. Slightly darker and more intense color than I’m use to for sparkling wine. Aromas of bread, apple and apricot – very pleasant smelling. Lots of yeast/bread notes on the palate with an unexpected soft texture. Apple, apricot, pear notes are balanced by mineral notes that run through the wine. Long, lingering finish.
Conclusions: Wow! This was one of the best sparking wines I’ve had in a long time. Beautifully balanced, soft texture in a bright wine. I need more of this in my life.
Notes: Bob picked up our cheese box this month and he grabbed the last bottle of this Cremant while he was at the cheese shop. I’m so sad they don’t have any more and am now on a quest to find it. The difference between this wine and the one we picked up at Trader Joe’s for under ten dollars is pretty noticeable. They both have their place, but this one is well worth the extra money and seriously I think the best sparkling wine I’ve ever had.
