Chateau Moncontour Sparking Vouvray Brut NV Wine Review (NW)
Citrus notes and yeasty bread on the nose
Tart green apple core on the palate
Grapefruit, green herbs, and nuts on the finish
For a sparking wine off the beaten path, check out sparkling Vouvray made from Chenin Blanc. It has beautiful tight bubbles and interesting flavors of citrus, herbs, and nuts.
I paid $17 for this bottle after searching four or five wine shops for one. While you might not find sparkling Vouvray at the local liquor store, track one down when you have an opportunity. It's nice to get off the beaten path once in a while. Raise a glass!
