As the new Rhone and French Regional liaison at K&L I decided to purchase and try out all the sparkling wines from my section for the new year (with some help from friends of course). The Brut Nature from Antech was my favorite by far of the entire lineup. The wine was crisp, bone dry with elegant fine bubbles, reminds me of a Blanc de Blanc Champagne with little or no dosage. Extremely well put together, and I could not believe it was sold for only $12.99!

Bubble heads who really enjoy a brisk and crisp sparkler need look no further. Antech's Brut Nature sparkling wine is vinified with zero dosage, making it quite possibly the most precise and racy sparkling wine on our shelves. Try it with an assorted platter of fruit de mer, or as a very high quality sparkler for your next mimosa.

This a wonderful sparkling wine. It is bright and full of refreshing crisp flavors. There is no dosage but the Antech Brut Nature is not overly dry and bitter. It is, instead, a lively and dry wine. Great alone, it should also go well with light foods.

The Limoux area of the Languedoc in southern France is the oldest sparkling wine producing region in the world, predating even Champagne. Blanquette is made mostly from the local variety Mauzac, which adds a delightfully crisp, fresh apple quality. The remainder is Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Antech's Brut Nature is produced with no added dosage, creating a wine that is super dry, crisp and clean, and bracingly refreshing. Delicious, and a terrific value!

So refreshing...so crisp...so clean...so perfect for those al fresco summer dinners. Or maybe a romantic dinner with a plate of oysters is your cup of tea...

The Antech is the kind of wine I love to drink during the Summer. Crisp, bright, core fruits, and bubbles! Life is too short to not make bubbly happen more often. Wonderfully refreshing by itself, and inexpensive enough for playing the part of bubbly in any cocktail.

For the first days of summer, there is nothing better then bubbles. This is Straw yellow and has a creamy mousse with a delicate, long-lasting bead on the nose you will find releasing hints of apples and tropical fruit, plus wisteria blossoms, wonderful balance and elegance. The Palate is bone DRY, crisp with admirable fullness and length. This will also work great with O.J. for your Sunday morning brunch. This is a wine of great balance and elegance and an excellent aperitif for all social occasions.

Quite possibly the perfect aperitif for a great soirée, so crispy and refreshing. It is not austere at all as some might think, being a Brut Nature, just delightfully vibrant. As with food, think all kinds of appetizers, Caesar's Salad, Goat cheese, Eggs Benedict, Caviar, Asian food, and why not... lobsters!

Meaty, beefy, austere, intense. Weird, but fun! GEEKS only.

Super dry bubbles. This does more than flirt with being austere. That being said, "thank you mistress, may I have another?"

Extremely crisp, great as an aperitif or as a base for cocktails. I'll be mixing this with some clove spiked OJ for the holidays, or perhaps the cranberry liquor from Clear Creek, or, maybe I'll float it on one of my favorite cocktails...

This is an excellent value wine--clean,crisp and bone dry! It's a great alternative to Prosecco or Cava. Made in the true Champagne method with no dosage. A great aperitif.

"Most of the world credits the invention of sparkling wine to the Champagne region, and to Dom Perignon. The legend, and possible real story, is far more interesting. According to Limoux natives, it was really invented there when Blanquette was created in their backyard. Its existence is documented as far back as the 1500s. When the great dom passed through, he stole the idea, they allege." -Kelby Carr ...This Cremant de Limoux is clean, bright and unassuming. Great to drink as is, or to mix a champagne-cocktail drink! Perfect for the holidays...-GLai
