BUBBLES SUPERBUY | Vintage French Methode Traditionelle at the right price.
GOLD MEDAL | Gilbert & Gaillard
GOLD MEDAL | Effervescents du Monde
Load up on this one. Vinted from 100% Chardonnay and held for 12 months prior to release, this is elegant and refined vintage Methode Traditionelle that totally defies this sub$20 price point. The Burgundy region in famed for its quality sparkling wines and this is a fresh and crisp style with green apple and tangy citrus notes on the palate. It is a perfect option when you choose to enjoy French sparkling wine but the budget doesn't stretch to Champagne. Highly recommended.
The distributor writes "Brut D'Argent Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay brut is produced according to the traditional method, and is was aged for a minimum of 12 months in bottles in cool Burgundian cellars. This pale and brilliant gold wine has white fruit aromas with numerous fine bubbles. The palate is elegant, long – lasting and well balanced between freshness and fruit. This wine goes perfectly with fish and seafood but also white meat."
