Effervescent

Tried these 3 sparklers last weekend with friends. We’ve been looking for a nice crisp, not too sweet, with lots of bubbles base for making sparkling aperitifs. Out of this round the Atmospheres was my pick. Guests seemed to really like the German Gilabert, its nose was off putting to me but I agreed it was tasty. The Cava Bien was lovely, but too sweet for our purpose. All delicious and all from a fave local shop: Domaine LA.

Exciting, fresh content coming. Later.

And don’t you think there needs to be a combo of these two wine cooler concepts? A three jug option: bubbles, white, and red. Or maybe four: rosé. Oh, oh. Five: something sweet. And beer for when you need a break. And I guess: water.
