NV Gruet Brut Blanc de Noirs New Mexico 12.5% $16

Tart pears and apples greet the nose over a bed of fresh yeasty notes and a touch of strawberry cream. On the palate this is citrus at first, gaining nuanced apple and strawberry flavors across the mid palate, all paired with a gentle yeasty character. A hint of creaminess grows on the palate, along with a gentle underlying sweetness that lends this a fruity nature that slips back under the acidity on the finish, a finish which shows a lovely hint of herb and faint red fruit notes. Almost a rose and very good in the style.  87pts

Comments

  • Nine of the wines you have select are an excellent choice, but the one from Argentina I disagree, in this country we are developing outstanding sparkling wines, but the one from Bianchi you have choosen it´s not one off them, it´s good, but no enough to be in that list, I suggest you make some research, and you will find a lot of other superior wines to select.
