Wine for the 4th Day of Christmas: Francois Montand

  Christmas Wine 4 - Francois Montand On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: Four Calling Birds Three French Hens Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree   But wouldn’t it be lovely if your true love also sent the Francois Montand Brut and Rose Sparkling Wines?! This affordable sparkler and rose are perfect for Christmas parties, and of course, New Year's Eve festivities this season. Sparkling "Brut", Francois Montand, FR, NV $10.95 François Montand is a true-value Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine made in a brut style. Crafted from the perfect blend of two European varietals, Ugni Blanc from France and Airen from Spain, each offers basic characteristics that complement each other to make an outstanding sparkling wine. Ugni Blanc, also known as Trebbiano, is planted throughout the world and is known for producing neutral wines that are high in acids with a medium alcohol level. Airen, Spain's most widely planted grape varietal, produces wines that are light, crisp, fruity and slightly aromatic. This 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine is from Gascony south of Bordeaux. It has a wonderful polished nose, clean flavors and an impressive amount of zip. It is not to sweet, but has enough richness and balance to enjoy by itself. A great one for your next party! Sparkling "Brut Rose", Francois Montand, FR, NV $10.95 The bouquet and flavors feature dried cherries and raspberries. Crisp and very dry, with an extremely clean finish that reminds me of a true French Champagne. Elegant and delicate, highly drinkable, and nicely bubbled
