    December 21, 2014 - Somewhat surprised about the quality of this wine, although it frequently receives quality reviews. Strawberries and cherries, good round mouthfeel, good bubbles and carbonation. Quite a nice champagne style wine for the price. Would certainly buy again.

    December 21, 2014 - This is our "go to"/house champagne, saving the special bubbly for special occasions. Consistently good, made mostly with Pinot Noir grapes (thus the "de Noir"). Agree, not as crisp and austere as other bubblies, but that makes it a tad more accessible. Touch of nutty and yeasty taste. For under $15, this is quite the bargain.

    November 28, 2014 - simple but on point.

    fullish body, soapy bubbles and just a hint of tart peach, strawberry and almond. present yeast but kept in balance.

    worth trying for under $20 bl.d.n.

    October 29, 2014 - Flatter and less crisp than other varietals of Gruet. Has a nice color and some red fruit qualities but not very interesting even if a value pick. I'd go with other Gruet varietals.
