We had it with some homemade corn fritters done on the bbq with the Vino Bites Tequila Salsa that came in this month’s wine club box (such delicious salsa!!), sausage rolls and salad. It really complemented the goat’s cheese in the salad.
The reason I picked this bubbles is that it’s not made from your typical sparkling wine grapes. This is actually the second fizz I’ve had made from the Petit Meslier grape variety this month and I’m digging it!
Petit Meslier is one of the 7 grape varieties allowed to make champagne but it’s not as common as your typical Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It’s also not typically made straight but instead blended.
In the glass, it looks like the shimmer of yellow diamonds with mesmerising bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Crisp apples and pears dominate the nose for me with a slight whiff of lemon and baking spice. In the kisser, it’s juicy with super fine mousse and it’s an incredibly refreshing way to end a hard week in the office.
