Editorial Reviews for Gruet Brut
This is light and bright with a lovely, fresh nose of apples ready for pie, touched with a little lemon and spice and just the faintest notion of butter crust. In the mouth the wine is a bit more linear than the nose would suggest but it offers up a balanced mouthful of moderately intense fruit with good length. 87pts
most delicious New Mexican wine ever! but also, crisp green apple, creamy mousse, good balance of body and acidity, decent finish. quite quaffable.
On second tasting, I got a citrus herbal nose with cris pear and walnuts on the body. Really enjoyable.
I liked this wine a lot, and was further surprised that it was grown in New Mexico. It is very balanced and charming, with fine bubbles.
There are some crisp, citrus aromatics combined with tangerine/nectarine characteristics on the palate. Refreshing, easy drinking, a nice wine to bring to a friend's party
Tasted again recently and still really enjoyed this wine. Very crisp and refreshing.
Really nice bubbles. Not as much biscuit flavor as I tend to like, but there was some nice light fruit in its place. It's also from New Mexico, so definitely worth a try for the novelty.
tangy lemon scent tart and a bit milky (as opposed to creamy)
External Reviews for Gruet Brut
A crisp and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of a toasty finish is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor.
A transplanted family from Champagne chose the micro-climates of New Mexico for the richness of the grapes that the area produced. The result is a fine sparkler combining very ripe fruit and a nice round texture.
Light and vibrant, offering creamy pear and tropical fruit aromas, with notes of white chocolate and anise. Drink now.

French in origin, this cuvee is now planted and harvested in the warm days and cool nights of New Mexico; the pinot noir is intense and full; a nicely balanced sparkler that works well as an aperitif or with foods.
One of my favorite sparkling values in the marketplace and it hails from the unlikely wine territory of New Mexico. The taste is amazingly close to a NV Brut from Champagne. Toasty biscuit, brine and juicy pear and apple flavors are released along with a steady stream of bubbles. A refreshing balance between acidity and fruit with a creamy, yummy mousse. Enticing flavors all combine to create a satisfying, well-crafted wine.
