Reviews : Mirabelle
90 points / Mirabelle Brut - eRobertParker.com
"This sparkling wine is a heck of a value. A blend of 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay aged two years on its lees prior to being bottled, it offers tiny, well-defined bubbles, persistent effervescence, and fresh brioche and lemon custard notes intertwined with hints of apple skins and tangerines. Fresh, medium-bodied and crisp, this delightful sparkler sells at a realistic price. It should last for several years."

"This bubbly is both complex and fun to drink, with lemon curd and spicy caramel aromas that lead to crisp but luscious cherry, apple and toasty vanilla flavors." (December 2012)

"....There is plenty of fresh fruit to be found here, and it is matched step for step by persistent yeast, and, if a scant edge of proper Rosé astringency shows at the finish, the wine is one of proportion and polish." (November 2011)

"Even better, the Non-Vintage Mirabelle Brut Rose (58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir) exhibits a light to medium pink color as well as abundant aromas of kir, medium body, good vibrancy and a crisp, zesty, dry finish...."

"A beautiful rosé sparkling wine, one that shows loads of finesse and elegance. But the final word is its deliciousness. Really captivates with subtle raspberry, toast, vanilla and yeasty brioche flavors that finish so crisp and clean. Editor’s Choice" (December 2010)

"Its yeasty, somewhat toasty first aromas suggest a bit of extra age, but the underlying fruit is still on the direct side and speaks to youthfulness. Frothy bubbles and good balance carry the wine nicely across the palate, and it stays true to its champenized roots and lively fruit all the way to a bright, lingering finish." (November 2010)

"A rosé with serious intentions, this has a delicate pink hue and floral strawberry and spicy yeast roll aromas. The flavors show good focus, offering raspberry, Gala apple, ginger and fig flavors." - (December 2008)
