Sparkling Wine Tasting 2003




We enjoy doing Champagne tastings every year - and this year was exceptionally fun!

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut


Traditional French Champagne. Quite carbonated and yeasty - tart, vinegary and odiferous.

Greg Norman Estates


Smooth but a bit target - very inexpensive, quite good for the price.

Chandon


Californian sparkling wine. Sweet, bubbly and fruity

Pol Roget


Well balanced, smooth grapefruit and musky smell. Nice complexity.

Duval Leroy


Sharp bite with a light, tart flavor and pleasant aroma

Louis Roederer


Juicy, bubbly, tart, not too sweet. The favorite of many.

Moet and Chandon 1996


Interesting but a bit flat.
