Korbel, California Champagne Brut, California
Tasting Note: Medium-intensity lemon in color with medium-plus sized bubbles, this wine has an aromatic nose of orange citrus, baked green apple, melon, pineapple, blossom and quince.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sparkling wine delivers flavors suggested on the nose along with toast.
The wine has a creamy mousse with riper fruit flavors than you’d fine in Old World sparkling wine.
A relatively straightforward sparkling wine that offers value from the price point.
Bottle Note: In 1882, three brothers, Francis, Joseph, and Anton Korbel established the Korbel winery in California’s Russian River Valley. Since then, Korbel has been honored to become America’s best selling premium champagne. Light and crisp with spicy fruit flavors, Korbel Brut is the perfect champagne to toast all of life’s great moments. Dosage 1% of weight.
