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.

How does this still have bubbles?! And how is this so good?!

A steal of a sparkler. Giving Champagne a run for its money with a $33 price tag and a world of complexity. When blind tasters separately call notes of seaweed and seashells you begin to wonder how California can produce such minerality. Fine, elegant bubbles are met with citrus, sea breeze, and faint brioche. Remarkable.

Pretty yeast Light, showing a touch of that super pleasant vintage champagne nose. Fun I beg forgiveness for typos, yet Delectable will not let me scroll up to see what I’ve typed.

This was the wine served at the “toast to peace” when Richard Nixon opened trade relations with China in 1972.
