Gruet Blanc de Noirs Brut - $16.00

Gruet Blanc de Noirs Brut(No rating yet)

A wine that exceeds all expectations. Aged for at least two years, the palate is developed and shows rich complex flavors, creamy texture with amazing raspberry and toasty aromas. A fine salmon color with very aggressive mousse.

Wall St Journal calls this the best American Sparkler under $20. 2011 was in top 50 of Wine Spectator top 100. 4th generation French Champagne producers emigrated to U.S. and chose N.M. over CA for diurnal temp changes, soil types and affordability of land. Non-vintage, two years on lees. Blanc de Noir means "White of Dark" as in white wine from dark grapes. Grape: 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay From: Albequerque, New Mexico

Temporarily out of stock. Sorry about that!

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #2 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 19 bottles)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #3 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 13 bottles)

  • Gran Passione

    #4 Gran Passione

    From the land of Amarone comes a delicious Merlot based blend. To perfectly ripe Merlot (60%) is added juice from dried Corvina grapes ala Amarone. Rich, deep and smooth, this is a remarkable Merlot that may just change your Merlot worldview! (behind by 4 bottles)
