Sparkling brut

We’ve looked at different styles of brut sparkling before. This flight illustrates some more contrast in what this word can mean.

Roederer Estate, Anderson Valley, Estate Bottled, Brut nv
This wine is consistently the personification of green apples – lip smacking delicious for the fan of high acid sparkling that pulls no punches. P&B in Philo 12% purchased for $18.69 at Bottle Barn Roederer Estate

Laurent-Perrier, Champagne, Brut, L-P nv
Candied fruit to smell. In the mouth there is more noticeable residual sugar than one sees with other brut styles of sparkling, less concentration and less acidity. Elabore in Tours-Sur-Marne 12% purchased for $31.99 at Traverso’s Laurent-Perrier
