Yummy, clean-drinking sparkler. Interesting blend; very fresh and floral

Stopped by one of the local wine shops to pick up a few bottles and they opened this for me to try. There is a small bit of chenin Blanc in this which adds a nice dimension. The bubbles were incredibly tiny...some of the smallest I’ve seen. Very crisp and refreshing. No tartness here. Bubbles don’t go forever, but just enough to give some toasted brioche notes on the finish. They told me it was $22...wow.

The Chenin Blanc adds another dimension to the predominantly Chardonnay based wine. Just right acidity leaves room for flavors to be enjoyed. Enjoyed in Chardonnay glasses, not flutes. Terrific!

70% Chardonnay, 15% Chenin Blanc, 10% Mauzac and 5% Pinot Noir. Méthode Champenoise.
Not quite the "real stuff" but very good for the price (on sale for $10) and very quaffable even for discerning palates I would think.

Conquered! Christmas stuff put away! I don't normally have wine two days in a row...feeling a bit justified!
Nice blend of 70% Chardonnay..15% Chenin Blanc...Mauzac 10.. and 5% Pinot Noir.
Lemon..brioche...a bit of lanolin...honey...and peach.

This Crémante is actually quite delicious ...under $20!

Yes...musical accompaniment as shown! 🎻🎶
