Brut Champalou Vouvray sparkling wine – from the wine virgin

We started the cooking demo off with a sparkling wine, which is what we usually do. While I am partial to the blush or red sparkling wines, the Brut Champalov was still quite an interesting starter to the evening. I believe the last sparkling wine I had was the sparkling sake, and this was quite different obviously. The yeast was very present in taste. The smell was hard to gather; however, there seemed to be a bit of a faint cherry smell and flavor.

Unfortunately, since this was a sparkling wine, I felt like the bubbles overtook what small cherry scent and flavor was evident. It was still a good, interesting start to the night and it was nice to try another sparkling wine since I haven’t had one (besides the Sake) in quite some time.
