Bousquet Bubblies Sparkle

Long a fan of Argentina’s Domaine Bousquet label, I was especially pleased to get my hands on their latest sparkling wines. Both Domaine Bousquet Chardonnay/Pinot Noir Brut and Domaine Bousquet Pinot Noir/Chardonnay Brut Rose are made from organic grapes in the Charmat Method. Charmat sparkling wines are made using pressurized stainless tanks for secondary fermentation (instead of secondary in the bottle–the Champagne method.)

Charmat sparkling wines tend to exhibit lots of primary fruit aromas and yeasty flavors. The Chardonnay/Pinot Bousquet bubbly gets fresh citrus and apple aromas from the dominant Chardonnay in the mix, while the Pinot/Chardonnay Rose highlights red fruit up front with citrus in the background. Crazy value on both these beautiful Bousquet bubblies: 13.00
