After a heck of a lot of work, 2 Guys Uncorked launched. It was time for Ted and Jon to celebrate! So, we bought 4 bottles of American sparkling wine. 3 bottles from California and 1 from Washington State.
- NV Gloria Ferrer Brut Best Buy of the week!
- NV Piper-Sonoma Brut
- NV Domaine Chandon Brut Disagreement!
These are not Champagnes because they don’t come from the Champagne region of France. California sparkling wines tend to be fruitier and less complex than French Champagne and about 1/3rd to 1/5th of the price. However, the Gloria’s complexity and balance certainly gives the French a run for their money. The Piper and Chandon are great for everyday drinking and the Ste. Michelle should be used as a mixer.
You get to see the first 2GU: Disagreement! Ted and I did not agree on the Chandon. I thought that it was really good, but Ted thought that it was mediocre. We encourage you to try the Chandon and figure out what kind of person you are. Are you are a Ted kind of guy/gal or a Jon kind of guy/gal?
So stop off at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods tonight and pick up one of these great bottles. Friday night seems like a great reason to celebrate!
