Wine of the Day November 30, 2013

BonnardotN.V. Domaine Bonnardot, Cremant de Bourgogne, Brut Rose, Burgundy Sparkling Wine, France.
Wow, what a nice bubbly, a great Brut Pinot Noir rose from Burgundy that offers terrific value in a first rate wine, I hope I get my hands on more myself. Perfect for celebrations, and anytime you feel like a sparkler, this elegant and stylish sparkler will do the job. The Domaine Bonnardot Cremant Rose starts with brioche, toast, yeast and cherry notes leading to a crisp and fresh palate of wild strawberry, apple and citrus while the bread dough, hazelnut and a hint of red currant play softly in the background. This could fool many people into believing that this was a fine Champagne, I know I was very impressed, and it has plenty of class, character and delicate details to marvel at.
