Gruet New Mexico Blanc de Noirs New Mexico Brut

SKU #1041146 90 points Wine & Spirits

 This affordable nonvintage sparkler has a lively mousse and a pale poached-salmon hue. Its ripe pear aromas suggest a rich wine, but that richness is enveloped by a firm, rosy phenolic grip.  (6/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator

 *Smart Buys and Top 100 Wines of 2011* Elegant and focused, with creamy vanilla and apple aromas and rich yet crisp flavors of baked pear and cinnamon bread. Drink now through 2014.  (12/2011)

Connoisseurs Guide

 *One Star, Good Value* With fruit mostly from New Mexico and a smattering from coastal vineyards, this wine is as much unique for its sourcing as for its contents. Its nose is creamy and a touch candied in the manner of the genre, and if the wine overall is a bit less than fully fresh and bright, it makes up for it by showing both depth and an appealing toasty, yeasty character. Wine from New Mexico? Yes, Virginia, and well worth a try.  (11/2015)

K&L Notes

For Champagne lovers the name Gruet is likely familiar, but this domaine's outpost near Truth or Consequence, New Mexico, which was first planted back in 1984, still doesn't get the attention it deserves. This Brut sparkling is bottled fermented for a minimum of two years before release. Gruet is producing tasty, approachable and ultra-affordable sparkling wines perfect for parties or to start off the evening.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
