TJ French Sparkling Wine for $2.99

Pssst! | Mar 16, 2003 12:16 PM

On Friday, Michael picked up a $2.99 bottle of sparkling wine at the San Mateo Trader Joes. The label says:

Trader Joe's
Blanc de Blancs
Brut
French Sparkling Wine

So we chilled it and drank it up last night.

Notes:
Lots of bubbles. Color was so pale it was almost clear. No acid. No yeast. Very light.

Verdict:
Its not overly sweet so it would be a good candidate for making a mixed drink - mimosa, bellini, cypress, float, etc.

Since its so inoffensive and goes down easily, it would be good for large parties or for the obligatory champagne toast at a wedding (where you KNOW half the people don't care/don't like/don't know good champagne).

Anyway, at $2.99 we will definitely get a case since we're big fans of Sunday Brunch.
