Sieur d’Arques Première Bulle Brut

LCBO#: 497727
Price: $18.95
Made in: Roussillon, France
By: Sieur D’Arques SAS

A French Bubbly in a green bottle with some pink colours that make this one stand out. Yeasty nose that blends well with the fruitiness of the grapes giving out apple notes with hints of soft vanilla. A nice dry mouthfeel. So well balanced between the fruity sweetness, the mild sourness and some peppery flavours. All-around, a very good Sparkling that is well-worth the price. Would definitely purchase again. A must try.

Jacob’s Creek Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut Cuvée

LCBO#: 210633
Price: $14.95
Made in: Australia
By: Jacob’s Creek Wines

This Australia Sparkling has a very nice presentation with a real cork, and cage. The grape nose is pretty sweet with the Chardonnay notes. The taste has a nice sourness to balance the sweetness. The dryness is light and the finish is short. Tart remains on the tongue, with some mild yeast lingering. Nothing too wild and lacking a little dryness to be a great one. Still, quite presentable anytime.

Rating: 3.6/5

Villa Sandi Prosecco

LCBO#: 194191
Price: $9.45
Made in: Italy
By: Villa Sandi SPA

This Italian Prosecco has mild fruity aromas with grapes, apples and pears. The taste is also fruity with more of the apples, but the finish is short. Nutty yeast lingers. A decent dryness gets better with time. Quite easy to drink this one with no big faults. Just a tad mild all-around. Some light sweetness, sourness. Really good for the price, as an entry level bubbly.
