K&L Notes

In 1984, Gilbert Gruet of the French Champagne house Gruet & Fils made a bold choice to plant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir near Albuquerque New Mexico. High vineyards at 4300 ft meant cool nights for his experiment and a long growing season. In 1987 he finally was able to achieve his first production using traditional French "Methode Champenoise" and the rest is history. New Mexican sparkling wine... who would have known?

Sparkling wine from New Mexico, you say? Yep, and it's really good, too! The Gruet family makes champagne in France and fell in love with New Mexico when they were visiting. The result of this love is a classically styled Brut Rose with bright strawberry fruit and toasted bread on the nose. Clean, raspberry fruit on the palate with a dry, crisp finish. Only 5000 cases produced. A wonderful bargain!
Top Value!

Copper-tinged pink color with somewhat creamy mousse containing large bubbles. In the glass, small dispersed bubbles with strawberry, raspberry and yeast aromas. Went flat relatively quickly which took away from my enjoyment a bit. On the palate, fruity approaching off-dry with strawberry/raspberry, mineral flavors with a touch of tangerine on the back palate. Short finish. This is a very good value!

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.
