N/V Andre Brut
This one cost a whopping $4 a bottle...I thought it would be interesting to try the cheapest sparkling wine I could find.
Lemony with a bit of pineapple. The bubbles are soda style...no softness to them, you pour a glass and a huge head forms, yet within a few minutes the glass is flat.
The label calls this Brut, which is false advertising to the hundredth degree. I’d call it sweet, think a moscato with some added sugar.
One thing I’ve learned with this one and Cook’s is that a terrible still wine isn’t remotely as offensive as a terrible sparkling. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this but if you’re on a plane and your choice is some sort of White Zinfandel or this, pick this one up.
