Who says bubbly is only for holidays and celebrations? These three sparkling wines hail from Tantalus, JoieFarm, and Cipes.
Who says bubbly is only for holidays and celebrations? Sparkling wines are lively, textured and uplifting to both food and mood. These three bottles are a contrast in style. JoieFarm's Plein de Vie Brut is a soft and pillowy blend made in the prosecco method. Tantalus has deployed their old vine Riesling grapes into an intense, racy thriller. Dry, lemony and minerally, it's a different but serious take on Riesling. Showing the classic autolytic character of extended bottle ageing, Cipes' Blanc de Noirs 2008 displays the toasty, nutty and complex side of gorgeously developed bubbly. Sparkling wines are not just for toasts and celebrations; try with dinner this weekend, and you'll be happy to have these bubbles on hand when the neighbours drop by!
