On Friday and Saturday this week, I'll be hosting a tasting at Liquor Direct. On Friday, you'll find me at the Fort Thomas Covington location and on Saturday I'll be at the Covington Fort Thomas location. My theme, of sorts, is Spring Wines (or perhaps, Wines That Remind Me of Spring). All week I"ll be posting the tasting notes for some of the wines I'll have on my table. Come out to the tasting this weekend – I'd love to see you and the tasting is free!
I love bubbly. I particularly like French bubbly. And I particularly believe in bubbly and mimosas for Easter. That's why I'm pouring the Saint-Meyland Brut this weekend at Liquor Direct.
First off, it's French and it's only $15. However, it is not officially
"champagne." It's made in the traditional method, but it's just not
quite located in the Champagne region of France, and well, it can't
take the name. It's made from hand-picked grapes and has plenty of tiny bubbles and that nice dry taste you associate with a French Champagne. The nose has some vanilla and floral aromas and it has a long balanced flavor. It tastes more expensive than it is.
I can't wait to pop this one open this weekend. This wine is a real
value and your family might be impressed you showed up with such a
tasty morsel from France for your Easter brunch. Depends on your family I suppose.
