Korbel Brut 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Clean and bright on the nose with yeast scents paired with white orchard fruits. On the palate this is noticeably sweet with lots of fruit, pears, and spice tones. It’s very richly fruited and retains a youthful, green grape tone to the mid-palate and onto the moderately long finish. 86pts

I'm not a big Champagne drinker, especially ones from California. Although, I was surprised by this one. It is dry but not overpowering with hints of citrus fruit (possibly lime) and apple. Results in a very enjoyable way to celebrate any occasion especially for the price tag of $8.

Korbel makes 1.3M cases, but practices sustainable farming and even has a new line of Organic products. This wine has great bubbles and a softly sweet buscuit flavor. A very soft and smooth finish with a nice rich mid-palate.

Sweet nose - a typical California sparkler. Soft with sweet fruits, some yeast and buscuit, but ultimately a soft wine. Slightly tart finish.

Soft and refreshing, with apple, lemon, fig and lime flavors that stay lively through the finish. This producer is a trustworthy name in sparklers.

Floral and spicy — almost with a Muscat edge — and tastes off-dry, but the sweetness gives it a fresh, lively feel and a creamy texture. Best of the Korbels. Drinkable now, extra chilled.

This nonvintage brut is almost always a successful bottling for Korbel. This release will not disappoint: It’s a fine sparkling wine, dryish, crisp and rich in flavors of orange, lime, vanilla and yeast, with a hint of strawberry.

Another fine brut from Korbel, dry, yeasty and citrusy, just like a good bubbly should be. Itandrsquo;s a little rough and scoury in the bubbles, but at this price, a good deal.

Offers modest apple and citrus fruit, with notes of mineral and spice. Drink now.

Korbel Brut is America's favorite bottle-fermented champagne. It is used to celebrate more weddings anniversaries and New Years celebrations than any other quality champagne. Korbel Brut is light and crisp with spicy fruit flavors. It is finished with a 1% dosage for a balanced medium-dry finish. Korbel Brut is perfect for every celebration and many meals. Try it with chicken dishes oriental foods especially those using lemon grass or mild curries. Korbel Brut is also great served with many fruits and milder cheeses.
