TASTING NOTES

Relax Bubbles ---  Dry
A refreshing white wine blend with an enticing bouquet of ripe pineapple and citrus. This exciting and intense play of sweet and tart has a light mineral note and a lingering, semi-dry finish.

Naveran Brut Rosé Cava 2016
Cavas are very versatile as an aperitif before the meal, to accompany dessert afterwards and (surprise) to enjoy during the meal. This Naveran Brut Rosado will pair with soft cheeses, fresh fruit, white meats (pork and chicken) and even richly flavored red meats.

Maipe Sparkling Brut
Very fine and persistent bubbles.  Citric nose with creamy tropical fruit. Very fresh and balanced in the mouth with great persistence and citric ending. Pairing suggestion: a versatile wine, good on its own or paired with  any food.

Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne
Composed of 20% Chardonnay for elegance and delicacy, 40% Pinot Noir for roundness and structure and 40% Pinot Meunier for fruitiness. Pale gold in color, abundance of delicate bubbles. Floral aromas of fruit with subtle predominance of pear, apple, almonds and hazelnuts. Fresh opening, smooth, pleasant and balanced.  An aperitif – style Champagne, with flavors of crème-de-cassis, lemon curd and pastry riding a creamy mousse and framed by crisp, well knit acidity.

Wolfberger Cremant Brut Rosé
A delicate salmon color with active, small bubbles. Round and fully-bodied, the Cremant Rosé displays  beautiful watermelon and strawberry aromas in a smooth finish.
