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.


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.
