Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965. Today, their son Hugh, continues their mission. Coming off their highly successful 12’ & ‘13 vintages, the 2014 is also 100% Chardonnay straw with aromas of floral stone fruits and citrus notes. A terrific crisp sparkler with crisp apple, peach and lemon flavors, fine mousse with tiny bubbles. Tangy acidity on a lingering finish ending with a yeasty creamy character. Nice!

Off the Bicyclette wine list. Fruit forward nose. Refined in the mouth and needed air to grow it’s impact in the mouth. Very nice.

Naturally some oxidation but still quite interesting.

I’m back at USQ wines on Union Sq.
Great place to come and learn about wine for free...
this Scramsberg is very good. No need to buy French stuff, when the domestic product is so strong.
Delicate, toasty nose. Superfine bubbles which help to lift the texture. Baked bread and biscuits. Finishes with a hint of honey. Strong showing.

Yeast, bread dough, applesauce, yellow peach, and white flowers. Rich and delicious. Moderate acidity.

Very impressed with this US bubbly. Light on its feet, a hint of sweetness, and pin-point bubbles. Presents as a French example.

Celebrating the 4th a little early with a yearly family tradition...listening to the Fort Worth Symphony at the Botanical Gardens with the best firework show in Fort Worth!

Noticeable step up from the Chandon, in both nose and palate. Much more herbaceous on the nose with added limestone. Palate shows more of the classic chalk/yeast notes with minuscule bubbles. ALMOST creamy (but not quite). There is a baked key lime pie type finish. A nice US sparkler for the price.
