Lagarde Extra Brut Blanc de Noir NV, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: This lemon to golden-colored sparkler made from 100% pinot noir has a nose of yeast and a hint of caramel.
On the palate this dry wine is tart with medium-plus acidity that refreshes and is straightforward.
A limited-edition wine with no affixed label on the bottle itself – a sparkler that is likely only available at the winery and perhaps only with lunch (where I enjoyed it).
