Tott’s Premium Cuvée and Blue Nun 24K Gold Edition
Hi Everyone! New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and that means a lot of you will be hosting parties. It can be hard at times to pick the right bubbly for your guests but I’m here to help. Today, I’m posting a video review of a couple different sparkling wines: Tott’s Premium Cuvée and the Blue Nun 24K Gold Edition.
Here are some of the facts:
Tott’s Premium Cuvée
Color: The color of the wine was a light straw with great clarity. It looked like a very slightly lighter than average sparkling wine.
Nose: The nose on this wine had some citrus and apple notes. It was hard to tell which citrus was lending the aroma though.
Taste: There was a medium acid profile with peach notes and apple in the short finish. It was sweater than I anticipated…almost sec instead of brut. Overall, it was not bad but I don’t know if I would use it as anything more than a toast. However, this would be great as a base for mimosas if you are hosting a New Year’s Day brunch.
Blue Nun 24K Gold Edition
Color: The color of the wine was almost clear. There was a very faint yellow color to it but it took me a minute until my eyes caught it. The wine had good clarity, if you exclude the fact that it had gold flakes floating in the glass.
Nose: The nose on this wine was really tame. Apple was the only aroma that I could detect but it was very weak.
Taste: This was actually a little dryer than I thought it would be. In my experience, German wines tend to be on the sweater side but this was solidly brut. The gold flecks didn’t affect the flavor at all and it had a clean finish. Overall, there was nothing special (good or bad) about it and I would buy it again for the gimmick.
