Wine: Gruet Blanc de Noirs

Gruet Blanc de Noirs

I’ve never put a lot of stock, nor interest in wine scores. I find them often to be inflated, biased, or based on random criteria that the consumer has no interest in. Rather, I prefer to choose wines because I enjoy them, and I prefer to sell a wine to you, the customer based on what you tell me you enjoy in the price point that you are comfortable with.

Ideally, I find a wine under $20 that drinks like many over the $50 price point. And every once in a while, we agree with a rating or list- Wine Spectator has listed one of these wines in the top 50 of their top 100 wines for 2011, Gruet Blanc de Noirs…

The rich and toasty character of our Blanc de Noirs is balanced and superb. Aged for two-year minimum, the palate is developed and shows rich complex flavors. The amazing berries aromas and the creamy texture play a leading role and create a great finesse. Winemaker’s Note: A fine salmon color, aggressive mousse and a lovely fruity wine with plenty of immediate charm and toasty aromas. There is also an explosive juicy flavor of raspberry.
