Sparkling

Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it making it fizzy. The carbon dioxide may result from natural fermentation, either in a bottle, as with the Traditional method, in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved (as in the Charmat process), or as a result of carbon dioxide injection.

 

Sparkling wine is usually white or rosé but there are many examples of red sparkling wines such as Italian Brachetto and Australian sparkling Shiraz. The sweetness of sparkling wine can range from very dry "brut" styles to sweeter "doux" varieties.

 

The classic example of a sparkling wine is Champagne, but this wine is exclusively produced in the Champagne region of France and many sparkling wines are produced in other countries and regions, such as Blanquette de Limoux in Southern France, Espumante in Portugal, Cava in Spain, Franciacorta, Trento DOC, Oltrepò Pavese Metodo Classico and Asti in Italy (the generic Italian term for sparkling wine being spumante) and Cap Classique in South Africa. Most countries reserve the word Champagne for a specific type from the Champagne region of France. The French terms "Mousseux" or "Crémant" are used to refer to sparkling wine not made in the Champagne region. German, Austrian, and Czech sparkling wines are called Sekt. The United States is a significant producer of sparkling wine with producers in numerous states. Recently the United Kingdom, which produced some of the earliest examples of sparkling wine, has started producing sparkling wines again.

Ackerman, X-Noir Rose Brut 750ml NV

X-Noir Rose Brut NV, is made of 100% Pinot d’Aunis (or Chenin Noir) - an unique ancient red grape, which almost came to an extinction, is revived and return in this eccentric bottle! Chenin Noir has no relation with Pinot Noir or Chenin Blanc, so we call it "X-NOIR”, with its mysterious black bottle to remind that the grape variety dates back to the dark mists of time.. 
Bright pink label symbolises the renaissance and wild character of Chenin Noir. Silver foil offers an elegant and chic touch. Steady fine bubbles with natural pale pink colour. Distinctively white pepper, raspberry, cherry aromas which are very unique to this rare variety. Lively, well balanced with fruity and white peppery dry finish on the palate.

André Clouet Champagne Silver Brut NV

"The NV Brut Nature Silver is naturally a very focused, driven wine given the no-dosage style. This shows wonderful nuance and depth all the way through to the long finish, with bright aromas and flavors but less of the toastiness than some of the house’s other wines. The mousse and finish are both utterly impeccable in their elegance." Wine Advocate (91 Points)

Jean-François Mérieau Les Bulles

A blend of 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, organically grown and aged on the lees for 18-20 months. The dosage is very low at 4 grams per liter, resulting in a refreshing, crisp wine. This bubbly has a bright nose of apple and pears with hints of citrus. The palamte is creamy and rich and the finish is juicy and long. I find myself reaching for this wine often as it really hits the spot after a long day. According to Wine Spectator: "This sparkler is forward, with a prominent spicy ginger note lading the way for pear, melon and brioche flavors. Stays racy on the finish, with the ginger note lingering. Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Drink now.
