Sparkling Wine

Chateau Moncontour Tete De Cuvée Brut Vouvray Sparkling, Loire A.C., France: The French writer Honoré de Balzac featured this winery in his novel, La Femme de Trente Ans. What a bargain for such a crisp, toasty bubbly! Lovely bright green fruit and lemon lift on the finish. A toasty, nutty French sparkling wine from the Loire Valley. These bubblies are rare finds, and this one represents tremendous value. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to seafood and great novels. Vouvray Sparkling food pairings: seafood, oysters, fried chicken. Drink: 2016 - 2020 207936 12% D 750 mL $17.95 Score: 90/100. February 2018. Best Value Sparkling Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
