Staff Pick Notes

This is without a doubt my go-to American sparkling wine. Produced since 1989 by French transplants employing the méthode champenoise, Gruet Brut is top quality stuff. Made from 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, this bubbly is full-bodied and carries refreshing notes of grapefruit, green apple, and lime zest.

Have no fear - the Gruet family moved to the US from the Champagne region and discovered ideal sparkling winemaking conditions in Southwestern New Mexico's soils and microclimate.
