Served at a wine dinner, this sparkling wine was a good accompaniment to an appetizer of bruschetta with goat cheese.
Bubbles are small and persistent. The nose offers hints of pear, apple, almond and yeasty dough. On the palate, it's very refreshing with notes of lime and tonic water. Good richness on finish.
The Wine Spectator often awards Gloria Ferrer Brut high points, and I would agree. If I were choosing a Brut to serve tonight, however, I would prefer the L. Mawby Blanc de Blanc.
