Bouvet, Signature Brut, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A lighter-styled sparkling wine that would serve as a perfect aperitif to refresh your palate before a main course meal.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of almost-ripened-green apple, chamomile, toast, green pear and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sparkling wine continues flavors suggested on the nose with medium-flavor intensity and medium-plus acidity.
A brut that is well made, straightforward, and good in its dimension.
