Pale straw color, somewhat sluggish streams of medium-sized bubbles.
Grapefruit smell with home-made bread rising.
Tart grapefruit flavor, granny smith apple, fruit seems to hide any oak/toast.
Good bottle for $12.70 / 375ml, enough less expensive than a better wine to make up for it, I think. I'm imagining this as the sparkler for friends at a large wedding reception, while family gets real Champagne.
