My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine, beer and spirits tips with each episode. This week I discuss: Absinthe.
Le Grand Courtâge, Brut Blanc de Blancs, France $18
If you are a fan of sparkling wine, you’ll want to stock up on this bubbly for the upcoming holidays. Though crafted in France, it’s not Champagne (that only comes from the region of the same name). Made by American, Tawnya Falkner, who followed her passion to produce wine in Europe she puts her mantra on the bottles proclaiming, “Embrace Life. Dream Big. Accept All Invitations.” This delightfully dry, yet succulently fruity fizz is elegantly packaged making it an ideal gift item, too. Vive la France!
