Veuve Ambal Brut NV (PB)

This French made sparkler is light golden on the pour with a light but definite bouquet of citrus and lemon with a hint of vanilla. In the mouth it is dry with good acid and rather indistinct flavors of citrus primarily. It is slightly bitter and the flavor dies quickly. It would be okay with a rich main course. I picked it up in an LA wine shop basically for the price of $9. It’s not remarkable but it’s not offensive either.

And our trip to Los Angeles comes to an end in about 12 hours. The trip was fun, the wine was mediocre, but the memories are swell! The next time you hear from me, it will be from back home in Maine. There’s no place like home… So, on that note, raise a glass!
