Wine of the Week for July 17, 2006

Hungaria Grand Cuvee Brut NV - $10.85
Style: Sparkling

Don't let the price throw you off -- this friendly sparkling wine is an amazing bargain. It's light straw in colour, with a hint of copper, and a mousse that is somewhat coarse. The nose has a nice yeasty note, with aromas of citrus and asparagus and just a touch of vanilla. Quite tasty, with citrus and vanilla notes and nice lees aromas at the tail end. Lightish, and with good length, it would be an ideal casual wine for an impromptu celebration. (LCBO 619288)

This is on the general list? How could I have missed it? I adore sparkling wine. At this price, Tuesday nights just got a whole lot more fun!
