Gerard Bertrand Cuvee Cremant de Limoux
"Cremant" is the French term for wines made in the Traditional Method, or the same way as Champagne, but produced in one of several region outside of Champagne. The specific region follows the word Cremant. This sparkling wine is produced in the Loire River Valley in the northwest of France. There, the cool, continental climate is similar to that of Champagne, and ideal for making complex, refreshing sparkling wine. One of the primary grape of the Loire Valley is Chenin Blanc - in Vouvray, Savennieres, and several other appelations. This bottle is 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, which brings a little more roundness and complexity to the blend. Full of ripe golden fruit and biscuity flavors, this Cremant over-delivers for the price and is one of our favorite bottles of "house bubbles"!
Adami 'Garbel' Prosecco Treviso - Veneto, Italy
Prosecco is one of the most well known sparkling wines. Its reasonable price and vibrant expressiveness make it popular. Adami is one of the top quality producers out there. They stand out like a jewel in a crowd of competitors where attention to quality can fall to secondary importance. Garbel shows crisp fruit flavors of lemon zest, white nectarine, and fresh cut honeydew melon. The soft mousse of bubbles bolsters the light body and supports the gardena-like and jasmine floral aromas.
