This little sparkler is made in Bordeaux from a clever blend of 20% Chardonnay, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Colombard.

Wine EnthusiastApple and hay aromas get it going, followed by spicy, slightly cinnamon-tinged apple flavors. Finishes with toast and seems solid on the tongue. Nothing outrageous or offputting; right down the center as sparklers go.
