Review
Wine Enthusiast December 15, 2008 83 Points ------------------------------------------ Crisp pear and red apple flavors are the initial attraction of this fresh sparkler. ------------------------------------------ International Wine Review December 2008 86 Points ------------------------------------------ "Pale green straw with a fine mousse and medium beads. Citrus aromas with slight petrol notes. Light fruit flavors on the palate and bone dry. ------------------------------------------ WineBuzz November/December 2008 Bubbling Over ------------------------------------------ Very pale, with very fine, lively bubbles; lemony citrus aroma with hints of toast, nuts and burnt sugar; delicate yeasty apple flavor. Excellent value. ------------------------------------------ Wine Enthusiast December 2007 ------------------------------------------ Almonds and a strongly yeasty element are the main characters of this sparkling wine. Its full, but the fruit still has a texture to it, leaving a good acidity to finish. Good value, enjoyable wine. ------------------------------------------ WineBuzz November/December 2006 ------------------------------------------ Subtly toasty aroma with hints of lemon and delicate, lively mousse; light and refreshing with lemon-lime flavors and a crisp, bright finish. ------------------------------------------ Arizona Daily Sun October 19, 2006 Spirits for your Halloween treats ------------------------------------------ Make your own or buy a package of roasted, salted pumpkin seeds at the grocery store and serve with a dry sparkling wine for a superb pairing. One bargain is the Marquis de la Tour non-vintage "Brut, Loire Valley." ------------------------------------------

Consistency and quality are carefully monitored to create very fine bubbles. The dosage has been perfected to make a clean, fruity but dry sparkling wine of extraordinary quality at a very attractive price.
