NV Faire La Fete Brut Sparkling Wine $17.99

Winery Tasting Notes:  Light golden in color, with vibrant aromas and flavors of baked apple, white cherry and lemon meringue, Faire la Fête  – to create a party – encourages celebrating the everyday with energy, a zest for life and an appreciation for discovery.

From gourmet caviar and oysters to a low-key bowl of chips or popcorn, Faire la Fête is refreshing and incredibly versatile. Fresh acidity and lively bubbles make it the perfect pairing for crisp Caesar salads, creamy mac & cheese, fresh sushi and spring rolls, smokey & tangy barbeque, or even a rich, earthy butternut squash ravioli with brown butter sauce.”

Drew_july2012_250112Staff Review:  DREW MOFFAT – Hey…it’s holiday time and everyone can use a nice bottle of bubbles that won’t break the bank and this non-vintage Faire Le Fette Brut is the HOT TIP!  “Faire La Fete – TO CREATE A PARTY – originates in the village of Limoux where the world’s longest running annual carnival celebration allows revelers to dance, sing, celebrate and enjoy an endless flow of sparkling wine.

Limoux boasts not one but four distinctive terroirs.  Containing benchmark chardonnay and pinot noir vineyards – the signature varietals of Faire la Fete – the four subzones conspire to deliver peerless sparkling wine!

We generally don’t send out sparkling wines through our wine club, but during the month of December it’s a perfect match.  You will find this refreshing and delightful, dry but not bone dry, crisp but not tart…it’s just right!  Enjoy!
