Cruzat Clasico Brut

About the Producer
  • Pedro Rosell is Argentina’s King of Bubbles - he and his team strive to create the country’s most expressive, sophisticated sparkling wines.
  • The winery is located in the old winemaking region of Perdriel, south of the Mendoza River, at the foot of the Cordon del Plata mountain range.
  • All wines are made from high elevation estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines, many of which sit at an unbelievable 4,600+ feet. Dosage is low across the board, resulting in verve/tension levels that truly rare in this part of the world.

    Tasting Notes

    Fresh, with persistent citrus and floral notes over a foundation of toasty tropical fruit flavors. Bright acidity holds everything together well. Surprisingly good with Vietnamese fare, especially nuoc cham drenched salads!
