I thought this was very enjoyable for the price.. heady and rich but elegant at the same time..lifted fruit, good daily drink.

Opening volley of our wine tasting tonight. Very crisp and clean. Delightful. I think this is an excellent sparkling wine, especially for the price.

This is fair. It is a bit sour tasting but at the price it's a decent value. I wouldn't buy this again however.
