Chateau de L'Aulée, Touraine Brut Intense, NV

I served this sparkling wine from the Touraine region of the Loire Valley in France for Mother's Day with my Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto and Grilled Lobster Tails with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette. This wine is made in the methode traditionelle, which is the same method used to make Champagne. This light brut has tiny bubbles, tastes of green apple and pear, and finishes with a hint of hazelnut.

Price: $17.00

Taste: 4
Value: 4
Drinkability: 3.5
Effervescence: 4
Overall: 15.5
