    August 12, 2017 - Really solid for $12, per usual from this producer. Copper color. Toasty bread nose, apricot, bruised apple. Tangy acidity on the palate, crisp strawberry and white cherry fruit, some biscuits and chalky notes. Balanced, vibrant, delicious, not the most complex wine but so, so good for the money.

    August 11, 2017 - 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay. I have said this before, but it bears repeating: this might be the single best value in sparkling wine on the market today. I paid a total of $10.03 for this (including tax), and that makes this gangbusters in my book. I do have a problem with the wine, though: how can they call this a “Blanc de Noirs” when it has 25% Chardonnay (“Blanc de Noirs” means a white wine made from black grapes)? Nonetheless, this tastes like a wine twice the price: lemony, yeasty, with a vibrant bubble. We always have six of these in reserve for that mid-week bubble fix. I think I am going to need to up that to a dozen. Very Good. 87-89 Points. thedrunkencyclist.com

    August 10, 2017 - Crazy good QPR, tight bubbles, hint of sweet, chalky, juicy and great acids. Great pairing with Greek chicken and cucumber salad.
