JCB FRENCH KISS SPARKLING GAMAY
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer BOISSET
Light violet purple colour. Very spicy, sweet, Lambrasco inspired nose. Sweet, light bodied, very spicy, very faintly grippy, gently effervescent, Lambrisco-inspired, ripe, plummy-berry flavours with a crisp, unoaked, light, honeyed finish. It’s ready-to-drink with 7.5% alcohol and 54 g/L residual sugar. The Vintages Catalogue says that JCB French KIss is an Ancestral method Gamay Beaujolais but the back label says that it is simply designated as a “French Sparkling Wine - Doux”. I would love to do a blind tasting between an Italian Brachetto d'Acqui or even an inexpensive Lambrusco such as Chiarli Castelvetro at only $10.35 to see how they compare. This wine may not be a detour but seeing JCB’s French Kiss stellar performance on YOUTUBE is worth every moment - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbAu2pTZneo

LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
Thought to be the very first technique for producing sparkling wines, the ancestral method involves a primary fermentation that is stopped before completion and a secondary fermentation that occurs in the bottle. This wine, made from Gamay, shows juicy berry fruit, earthy notes and lively bubbles. Price $ 19.95
