This is an acid-driven food-friendly wine to be enjoyed with anything burger or bolognese.
The Blanc de Noirs was my favorite of the Gloria Ferrer sparkling wines I tasted this season.
This is an interesting and unique wine, with barrel smoke adding layers of complexity, without overwhelming vanilla or other effects from the wood.
All in all, a pleasant, mild sparkling aperitif, a surprise to me, for this grape.
Traditional Provençal holiday treats such as hot wine, chestnut picking, local truffles and foie gras will be available, as will the regional specialty: Muscat de Beaumes de Venise.
