It's So Risque!

Toad Hollow Vineyards (Imported by), "Risque" NV ($15) -- Produced and bottled by Les Vignerons du Sier d'Arcues from Limoux, France by the blanquette methode ancestrale. OK, so it's a fizzy, fuzzy sparkler with an explosion of white creamy bubbles and a crispy, somewhat sweet taste that quickly gives way to a "yummy" finish. The adjective is from Polly and others who really liked it. I do not usually like sweeter wines (except for Ice Wines, Rieslings, etc), but I found this fun wine a blast. I then tried it with a chunk of strawberry wedged on the glass and the aromas married perfectly. "Marvelous!" What a great aperitif and due to the low 6% alcohol, it is fun for the whole family. Buy It For The Holidays!
