Wine Review: The 2016 Mont Marcal is gunning for California Sparklers. Fuller in style with a bit more yeast flavors than usual. Toast, apple, and hints of Anjou pear are pronounced on the palate. The bubbles are lively and medium in size, but they don't overtake the flavors. Instead, they add to it. The acidity is bright, but again doesn't overwhelm. This sparkler would be perfect with bacon wrapped scallops. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Produced from Xarel-lo, Macabeo, & Chardonnay grapes in a classically dry style. Finely beaded texture with doughy complexity and excellent fruit on the dry finish. Zesty aromas of citrus and ripe yellow fruit -like a gently spiced pear set in pastry.
