You can't go wrong with this sparkler for the price. It is delicious!
Now that Roederer Estate has gone up in price, this is now the sparkling wine bargain to beat. A wonderfully complex sparkler that rivals Piper and other lesser French champagnes. Don't let the fact that it is made in New Mexico scare you away. Such a great value!
Enjoyed our first bottle on December 1, 2006.
We were very surprised to find such a nice sparkling wine out of NM! It was even delicious paired with sushi. A very affordable, fun wine.
Gruet NV Brut
Who would of thunk it? One of the best value domestic sparklers from the land of red or green chile. Made in a true French style from 100% New Mexican juice. The NV Brut consisting of 75% Chard. and 25% Pinot Noir. A little citrus hits the palate after a wonderful green apple aroma. Compares to Californian sparklers twice or three times the price.

Also, look for the vintage Blanc de Blancs, which are quite wonderful.

Their NV Brut was my choice last year for the millennium while celebrating with a large group of friends who weren't much into "that wine thing." They loved it, I loved it, and at the price you'll be hard-pressed to beat the quality/value ratio.
Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape.
