Ten bucks, sparkling wine, France....I'm game.
A little bit of dough on the nose.
Lime zest – all sorts of lime actually – a bit of white grapefruit. Nice, crisp, light bodied and a thin mouthfeel (which I tend to like on cheaper sparklers).
Red apples on the finish with a bit of nuttiness coming through on the back end.
For ten bucks this is certainly alright - easy drinking, crisp, and enjoyable – definitely better than most sparkling wines in this price range.
