The flavors are a fresh, crisp version of white peach, ripe apple, baked pastry with a mango-vanilla-yeast bouquet. The tartness is pleasantly wrapped into a sweet fruit finish.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Argyle’s sparkling wine portfolio begins with the 2005 Brut, composed of 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay. Medium straw-colored, this biscuity bubbly has tons of flavor, plenty of minerality and superb length. It is a great value in high class sparkling wine (and that includes Champagne). ”
Bright and complex, with juicy acidity supporting the pear, tobacco and lime flavors, singing together in harmony on the lively finish. Drink now.—H.S.
Light, crisp and expressive, with a prickly fizz underscoring the lively pear and citrus flavors, finishing long, with a light toasty note. Drink now.—H.S. (May 15 2013)
"FRESH & CRISP" - we know one should not refer to alcoholic beverages as invigorating, but this Brut is exceptionally fresh and crispy with a smooth cream center. Aromas include an enticing combination of apple blossoms, lemon custard with a beam of both vanilla crème and roasted hazelnut, with a touch of fresh squeezed extra virgin Spanish olive oil!
