Decent enough for mimosas and football. BTW: I feel so bad for Niners fans on that their new coach was the worst coach in the NFC East.

My lovely wife launches her real estate company serving southeast Wisconsin.

Korbel Brut, pale yellow, citrus and apple taste, a bit sweet, but with a dry finish. One of 3 bottles to launch her business.

Here's to success!🏠

Pale lemon in color with a yellow tint.

Stinky nose of citrus, lemons, yeast, spices and white pepper.

Medium bodied with aggressive bubbles and medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with citrus, green apples, grapefruits, spices, bitter fruits and black pepper.

Short spicy finish.

This is pretty much undrinkable. Unbalanced with a bad nose and not much on the palate. Might be too old or stored incorrectly.
Next... 😃

12% alcohol by volume.

Tastes like sparkling wine. 😀 light and crisp. Great for cocktails, in this case a French 75.
