Chandon Brut Classic NV (PB)

This sparkler has a bouquet of unfermented grape juice which always reminds me of “cheap” wine or homemade wine that isn’t very appealing. The bubbles are okay but not bright and the flavor is grapey with hints of apples. It is dry, unremarkable and straight forward. Fruit is average; this is just a lackluster creation of Pinot Noir Chardonnay and Pinto Meunier. This wine was $20–about $12 too much! Don’t raise another glass of this; there’s much better out there.
