Straw green color. Aromas of ripe bosc pear, honey, apple blossom, dandelion, freshly risen dough, and slate with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a sleek, interesting, medium-long lemon and lime zest, pineapple, and toffee finish. A cheerful Cremant with great texture and generous fruit.

Garnet black color. Interesting aromas of blackberry, charred pie crusts, anise, and black cassis preserve with a velvety, crisp, effervescent, dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long chocolate chunks, menthol, and fruit tisane finish. A fun, rich expression of bubbly Shiraz; a tasty Charcuterie companion.

Silvery emerald straw color. Fruity aromas of sliced green apples in cream, grape bubblegum, peach blossom, ripe honeydew, and mandarin orange with a velvety, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length white peach, minerals, sea salt, and chalk finish with no oak. A fruity, fun prosecco that will please the American palate.

Straw color. Aromas of lemon bundt cake with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, medium-length tangerine granita, pressed flowers, green almond, and fruity olives finish with no oak. A lovely, delicate expression of Prosecco that will be a terrific aperitif.

White gold color. Aromas and flavors of pipi du chat and white peach with a syrupy, soft, cloying medium body and a smooth, brisk tinned pears in syrup finish with no oak. A very sweet moscato to pour atop sorbet.
