"Made by a family with old ties to Champagne, you will swear that’s exactly what you are drinking. Crisp, almond, stone fruit, and citrus, the bubbles are tiny and the finish is creamy. Truly a best buy."
" The current disgorgement of the Gruet Gold Label is 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir. The fruit is grown at 4300' above sea level in the arid climate of Central New Mexico. The significant diurnal fluctuations in this high altitude climate provide ideal growing conditions for both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay - and it shows in the wine! The fruit is hand-picked at the optimal time in mid-summer to achieve just the right balance of ripe fruit flavors and piquant acidity. Consistency of style is maintained by blending wines from different vineyards and harvest years. Aged for 24 months "en tirage."
The Brut offers a crisp, and full-bodied sparkling wine, which has developed rich complexity and fine mousse. The allure of toasty finish from twenty-four months on tirage, is a complement to the sophisticated apple and citrus flavor. Winemaker's Note: Brilliant with ultra fine bubbles. A wonderful fine bouquet dominated by green apple and grapefruit flavors. A truly classic house style!" ~ Winery notes

Add to Your Bubbly Value List - For years, we've bought from the same list of tried-and-true sparkling wines when we're looking for a modestly-priced battle. Recently, noticed a new name recommended---a label from New Mexico, of all places. We sampled it on New Year's Eve. It didn't make it to the top of the list but it's one we'll add to the list and buy again.
