Another terrific release from winemaker Dianna Novy Lee, the NV Brut has rich, classy notes of ripe stone and orchard fruit as well as some spice and brioche to go with a layered, rich, impressively textured style on the palate. It has a fine mousse, terrific elegance, and plenty of length, and is a classic, impeccably made Sparkler.

This is winemaker Dianna Novy Lee’s debut sparkling wine, blending 56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir and then aging the wine on the lees for three years before release. It impresses from first sip, showing acid-driven raciness and a core of green apple, lime zest and biscuit flavors that linger. It’ll serve well as a delicious aperitif or fitting companion for the table.

…a dry, taut, feathery and finely beaded Sonoma County brut under the brassy brand Flaunt.
