I drank these 3 wines and tasted apple, apple pie, biscuit, brioche, cinnamon, creamy, creme brulee, ginger cookies, nutmeg, yeast. The wines are grand cru, grower, low alcohol, lutte raisonee, my favorites and came from The Champagne Club by Wine Access, Nakedwines.com.

The nose was all brioche, biscuit, and yeast. I tasted apple pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg (probably best characterized as “baking spice”) with a little crème brûlée running around in there.
Tasting notes: brioche, biscuit, yeast, apple pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, creme brulee
The nose was subtle ginger cookies and cinnamon. It was mild and balanced, creamy in the mid-palate with notes of apple and pear as it reached the back of my mouth. I enjoyed the mysteriously long finish, of depth and complexity.
Tasting notes: ginger cookies, cinnamon, creamy, apple, pear
This white wine tastes like most other “low alcohol” white wines — apple cider. I found it a touch sweet with no acid to balance it, and flabby. 11.9% ABV.
Tasting notes: slightly sweet, apple cider, cinnamon
Notice: I hold no formal wine credentials. I am a wine geek who has consumed 1000+ of bottles from 100+ different wine clubs and 1000s more bottles that didn’t come from those wine clubs. I do not accept payment for wine reviews, and I do not accept payments to influence my opinions. I happily accept free wine (and I buy wine).
Why read my wine reviews: Wine taste is subjective. What I like may not be what you like. I try to leave room for you to form your own opinions, so I don’t provide a score or a rating. I do point out wines that are an incredible value or truly not worth the money. I note flaws, wines that don’t have typicity (because this matters if you are buying wine without having tasted it yourself), when wines are out of balance, and when wines lack appropriate body.
I don’t like wasting money (or anything for that matter). I’m careful about where I spend my money and my mindset as a reviewer is to be careful about where you spend yours. I don’t believe a high price tag equals quality and I know for sure there are wines of very good quality that are also a great value.
