    This Gruet Blanc de Noirs Brut speaks for itself (refer to the raves and Top 100 ranking above and below...).  The light salmon color is gorgeous in the glass and will lend a festive air to the onset of spring.  Your second bottle will virtually disappear when you offer it with oyster po'boy sliders.  Hungry yet? For a simple dish, grilled lobster with orange chive butter is the right choice.  For fancy, make it seared scallops with leeks and caviar cream.  If this weather holds out through the weekend, how about a stupendous Sunday brunch? A glass of this beautiful Blanc de Noirs with sinfully, luxuriously delicious eggs benedict is the perfect way to begin your day. Cheers Baby! 

    Wine Spectator:  "In my search for wine sanity, I've grown increasingly fond, even ardent, for the sparkling wines of New Mexico's Gruet winery, particularly their Blanc de Noirs and Brut non-vintage bottlings. I'm willing to bet that you can put them in a blind tasting with bubblies three times that price and they'll hold their own. (And I can guarantee you that if these exact same wines said "Napa Valley" they'd cost three times as much—and get it.)" Aug 2007

    New York Times: "For my money, the best sparkling wine in the US is still produced by Gruet in a place about as far away from Champagne as it could be. . ."

    Wall Street Journal:  "Best Value sparkling wine in the U.S. under $30.”

    Winery:  Pale Salmon in color, our Blanc de Noirs has aromas of raspberry and cherry, complimented by a rich, round mouth feel on the palate and a balance of crispness and toastiness. A wine in which compliments any style of food."
