A strong candidate for the top Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine in America, the non-vintage Gruet is fresh and frothy. Yes, the carbon dioxide is a bit lively, but the wine is so fine. Elegant aromas of apples and dried peaches; medium bodied, textured and delicate on the palate; fresh core fruit flavors, smooth aftertaste. (Tasted: August 24, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Dry and crisp with a rich texture; bright and luscious with ripe flavor and excellent balance; polished and dense.
Gruet Blanc de Blancs is a Brut styled sparkler, medium lemon in color with a fantastic bead in the glass that remains incredibly lively throughout the palate. Aromas of intense notes of brioche, followed by green apples, lemon zest, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit. Soft on the front of the palate with nice lingering acidity on the finish. Flavors of fresh green apple and pineapple with great structure from top to bottom.
