Last night, I picked up a new sparkler for David and I to try: Chateau Moncontour brut vouvray. ($14) Ever since tasting it as a young boy visiting France, David's been quite fond of sparkling vouvray. As I poured out his first fluteful: Ah, this brings me back...
|the chateau's best|
I, too, was fond of the dry sparkler which had good weight on the palate and some noticeably darker fruits. Was it as good as a champagne? No. But as a sparkling wine, I'd certainly rank it amongst those of a higher quality.
