AMERICAN SPARKLING

The United States is a significant producer of sparkling wine with producers in numerous states. The classic example of a sparkling wine is Champagne which is exclusively produced in the Champagne region of France. Sparkling wine has significant levels of carbon dioxide in it, making it fizzy. The carbon dioxide may result from natural fermentation, either in a bottle (as with the traditional method), in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved, or as a result of carbon dioxide injection. Sparkling wine is usually white or rosé but there are many examples of red sparkling wines such as Italian Brachetto. The sweetness of sparkling wine can range from very dry "brut" to sweeter "extra dry". Most countries reserve the word Champagne for a specific type from the Champagne region of France.

    Item #: 275987

    WINERY NOTES - "Talk about long hang time...the high elevation Knudsen Vineyard, Dijon Clone Chardonnay in the 2010 Blanc de Blancs wasn't harvested until October 18th, a full month behind our usual picking window! As a result, we see the strict interplay between vivid aromatics and steely, razor's edge minerality. Comice pear, faint pomelo, and fresh brioche seep calmly against the stern, edgy backbone. In order to tame that wild, late season acid and develop creamy texture, this Chardonnay was fermented entirely in our oldest neutral oak barrels and allowed to age on the lees. The tense, enlivening acidity and elegant mousse leave the salvaries coated with umami-like richness. I'm thinking Chelsea Gem oysters and a sandy beach."

    Julia Lee's Block, palanted in 1990, is a carefully selected higher elevation site of the Knudsen Vineyard. This block is planted with 100% Dijon clone Chardonnay.

    WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "Clean, crisp and bright, this was fermented in stainless (with just 10% in neutral wood), and not put through malolactic. The blend is 60/40 Chardonnay/Pinot Noir, yielding fresh fruit flavors of apple and melon that are focused and precise. A streak of ginger runs through racy acidity."

    WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2012 Argyle Brut is a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir from high elevation sites, partly from the Spirit Hill Vineyard. It has a lifted lime flower and white peach-scented bouquet, floral in style and very well defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with squeezed lime and green apple notes, well-judged acidity and a zesty finish that is just the ticket on a warm summer's day. Recommended. "

    WINE ENTHUSIAST 90 POINTS - "A nice, everyday bubbly that offers elegance at an affordable price. Chardonnay contributes crisp flavors of limes, while Pinot Noir brings deeper flavors of cherries. A lovely wine that grows in the glass."

    Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. Look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshingly dry finish.

    Winemaker's Notes - "Baked apple, a rich creamy mouth-feel followed by a touch of lemon curd on the finish. A perfect aperitif by itself and a great cocktail, simply add a few pomegranate seeds to the flute. Pair with rich foods such a foie gras, as well as sweet and sour sauces and anything prepared with exotic spices, including curries and chilies. Also great with a BLT."

    WINE & SPIRITS 90 POINTS - "Fresh and citrusy, this has an underlying richness giving a clean, soft impression that lasts. Russian Cuvee has a slightly higher dosage than Iron Horse's Classic Vintage, balanced to serve as an aperitif or for toasts."

    WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS - "A majority of Pinot Noir in this blend doesn't overshadow the Chardonnay's sentiments of baked apple, hazelnut and creme brulee. Warm and savory, the mousse is also dry, crisp and buoyant, balanced and elegant in the end, making for a complete wine with a lengthy finish."
