Fluteau Blanc de Noirs Brut N.V.

Fluteau Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne
100% Pinot Noir.

Pale gold with a very slight pinkish tinge.  Fine, not very agressive bubbles.

Peach, lavender, and Asian pear with just a bit of biscuit and toast. Nicely acidic.  12% A.B.V. Not a standout in any aspect, but fine as an aperitif or something to freshen up the palate before moving on to a more serious wine.

Beer & Bubbles!

Saw this in the Southwest in-flight Spirit magazine.
Sounds intriguing.

Reminded me of the saying 'I have Champagne taste, but Beer money.'

DeChanceny Cremant de Loire Brut Rose

Recently had the chance to taste this DeChanceny Cremant de Loire Brut Rose.

It was light with good yeast, a delicate rose-jelly blush on color.
Decent but not effusive bubbles.
Well-balanced acidity, hints if green apple.
