Blanc de Bleu Cuvee Mousseux 187mL Split
Winemaker's Notes:"We start with the base wine, which is the same fruit used in their our high-end, methode champenoise programs. A natural yeast fermentation then adds bubbles and imparts a pleasant pastry-like character. Next they we introduce a small amount of blueberry flavor that leaves a lovely element of surprise and refreshment. The processing of these elements at their peak help craft Blanc de Bleu’s unique flavor and palate-pleasing complexity. This method is why people are pleasantly surprised to find the wine dry and crisp, instead of another overly sweet, flavored wine.” - Bronco Wine’s Champagne Master
Wilfred Wong - "I hate to admit it, but over 40 years in the wine business has turned me into a bit of an elitist. As I approached this blue bubbly, I was skeptical and not wanting to like it. When I tasted it, while it is not as dry as most "bruts," it was quite delicious and pleasurable. The Blanc de Bleu® Cuvée Mousseux is an attractive and well-made sparkling wine. I am now hoping to revert from my " wine geekiness." and to rejoin the rest of the real world. This wine is fluorescent and translucent blue in its appearance— flamboyant to say the least, and asking me to put away my notebook, and enjoy. In the aroma and on the palate, this effervescent beverage shows apples and berries. Its medium sweet finish makes it a crowd-pleasing choice for social gatherings and light hors-d'oeuvres. I could see a perfect pairing with unagi."
