Sparklers are my wine of choice. And I love the 2002 J Brut!
The 2002 J Vintage Brut Russian River Valley has a persistent effervesance and a beautiful mousse. Aromas and flavors of pears, nectarines, and honeydew and lime lead to a creamy and lengthy finish.
The wine is 49% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir, and 2% Pinot Meunier. And 100% Russian River Valley, Sonoma County.
It is 12.5% alcohol by volume. Suggested retail price is $32.
