Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
It is composed of 20% of the Chardonnay
grape variety, for elegance and delicacy, 40% of Pinot Noir, for roundness and structure and 40% of Pinot Meunier for fruitiness.
Pale gold in color, abundance of delicate bubbles.
Floral aromas of fruit with subtle predominance of white fruits: pear, apple, almonds and hazelnuts. Fresh opening, smooth, pleasant and balanced.
Food Pairing: This wine is an ideal accompaniment for Breton lobster and cream sauce, sole morel mushrooms, chicken brochettes with citronella.
"Lightly floral and fresh, this offers pretty notes of ripe Gala apple and glazed apricot, layered with subtle hints of almond paste, piecrust, honey and ground spice. Shows fine balance and a lively mousse, leading to a lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
Favorite bottle of bubbly, when I can get it on sale. Not too dry, not too sweet.
Excellent champagne, will continue to use for special occasion. Fast shipping
One of my favorite bubblies for sure! Slightly sweet and great with food.
one of my favorites.. excellent value
We loved this champagne, on par or better than what we are familiar with (MUMM, Tattinger, Moet, etc). Dry with a great full mouthfeel and very economical!!
A significant improvement over NF's non-reserve offerings, a very nice finish without any bite or bitterness. Good for any occasion sip on its own or with whatever.
Served one bottle at Christina's party--everyone liked. Still AYALA the fav
Very good Champagne for the buck.. Crisp/tasty. No complaints.
for the price range it is in it was ok and has a nice dry pleasing after taste,
I'd really give it 3 1/2 stars. It didn't blow me away, but for roughly $24 a bottle, it's close to the price of some higher-end California sparkling wines, so if you want some real champagne on a budget, it's a good purchase. I wouldn't spend over $30 on it, but for this price I'd buy it again.
I'd buy it again, but there are a few other sparklers in this price point that I prefer.
