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.

12.8% alc.
100% Chardonnay.
17% barrel-fermentation.

Not related to this wine in particular here's a question to fellow Delectable users - has the label recognition on this app taken a turn for the worse recently?
I admittedly post a lot of unknown labels but find myself needing to correct identified wines about 70% of the time.

@Delectable Wine Have you "downgraded" your software recently?
This specific wine is a fairly simple label to recognize and yet it came up wrong on first try.
I do enjoy using the app but in a competitive market (read; Vivino) quality/reliability should set you apart.

Always a wonderful summer supper, especially in the garden in Cape May on vacation.

Golden Apple, Key Lime Pie and chalk. Surprisingly rich, dense bubble. Mouthwatering acidity. Good stuff!

Just love these bubbles 🥂 Great value, always a crowd pleaser, and just all-around delicious and fun to drink.

A light refreshing nose with a hint of pineapple. The depth of flavor and balance on the palate is a step above your typical sparkling wine. Citrus, a hint of vanilla, and a pleasant minerality make their presence known.
