Hello December!!! I adore this month, as not only Christmas is right next door, but also my birthday and multiple dinners, posadas and holidays…and when it comes to celebrations sparkling wine is a must.
To figure out the differences between the wide ranges of sparkling wine, I attended a tasting last week hosted by El Club del Gourmet at one of its newest stores in Colonia Roma. I usually attend their tastings as they make it fun and easy to learn about winery and gourmet lifestyle.
The tasting consisted on technical and cultural details and the tasting of 3 sparkling wines:
Davì Prosecco, Extra Dry – D.O.C.G. Prosecco. Italy
Canard Duchêne Brut Rosé – A.O.C. Champagne. France
Devaux Grand Réserve – A.O.C. Champagne. France
Daví Prosecco Extra Dry comes from the grape named Prosecco (also named Glera) and it is produced in Veneto, Italy. It has a bright yellow color with intense aromas and flavors of yellow apple, pear and hints of peach. It is easy to marry with practically any meal, but it suits perfectly with mole, seafood and desserts. It should be served in a temperature of 6º to 8º.
Canard Duchêne Brut Rosé is produced in Champagne, France. It has 45% of Pinot Noir grape, 25% of Pinot Meunier and 30% of Chardonnay. It has a brilliant graphite color with delicate and constant bubbles. Its aroma is citric with a hint of cherry and tastes as strawberry with a refined texture. This champagne will marry exquisitely with high dining Mexican dishes. Serve it form 6º – 8º.
Devaux Grand Réserve is also produced in Champagne, France. It consists of 60% Pinot Noir grape and 40% Chardonnay. Its aroma reminds us of toast, orange zest, butter and spices. This wine is excellent to have as an appetizer and shold be served in a temperature of 4º – 5º.
Among them all, the Daví Prosecco was my favorite, and I really recommend it if you enjoy a fresh and subtle sparkling wine.
At Club del Gourmet store, there is also a wide range of red and white wines if you don’t like sparkling. Personally I would suggest Puzzle, from Uruguay, a 15 varietal red blend. Amazing!!
I urge you to visit El Club del Gourmet for you to find either the best present or to be the best host for this Holiday Season. Cheers!
