    90 Points, America's Top Rated SparklingInternational Wine ReviewDon WinklerDecember 10, 2015

    Pale yellow straw in color, this is a nicely balanced fresh tasting wine showing ripe apple and lemon cream, finishing dry and chalky. Not as bone dry as some brut natures but refreshing with very bright lemon acidity. Very good for the price.

    "Appealing, with aromas of baked apple and cinnamon that lead to zesty flavors of dusty lemon, hazelnut and spice. Drink now."

    tasting notes

    100% Chardonnay. No dosage. Gruet Sauvage Non Vintage is a bone-dry sparkler, pale straw in color with a delicate but persistent mousse. The minerally aromas and flavors of bright citrus pair well with oysters, sushi and cream sauces.
