Gloria Ferrer Brut NV
85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay | Alc: 12.5% – Rich and Creamy
Sonoma County, California
Produced exclusively with hand-picked grapes, this Cuvée was put on the American market for the first time in 1985. It is prepared according to the traditional method. Its bouquet with pear aroma distinguishes it from other sparkling wines and the fruity aroma lends it an initial effervescence which culminates in a lingering, creamy effect.
#78 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
“Made from mostly Pinot Noir grapes, with an addition of 8.8% Chardonnay, this Méthode Champenoise wine is sultry in raspberry cream and crème brûlée, with enough acidity to keep it fresh in the glass. The finish offers a taste of toast with ginger jam.” 92 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
