He said: We’re not champagne drinkers; however, this is pretty good. It’s sweet almond taste is refreshing and makes for an unusual champagne toast. We’ve had it many times and I always look forward to the almond flavor.
She said: A real treat for champagne drinkers even those who recoil form the idea of almond in their drink. The almond flavor is a delicious treat from the first sniff to the tasty finish. Medium sweet with medium body it’s a delightful champagne.
Comments: Several years ago we were with another couple wine tasting in the Temecula Valley. While at the Wilson Creek Winery for lunch our friend tasted the almond champagne and said I really should taste it. It was clearly not on my tasting list since the very thought of “flavored” champagne was a turn-off. After reluctantly taking a taste I was hooked and since then look forward to it when drinking champagne. Taste can be a very personal thing, but I’d recommend giving it a try…it’s unusual and a real sleeper.
