Treveri Blanc de Noir


Treveri Cellars Website

Aaron:  Red apple and palm trees cloud the nose and this is a little on the tart side but not bitter.  It’s more to say it’s not sweet.  I like that this is an easy-to-drink sparkling which can stand up to food and be enjoyed at any time.  89 points

Teri: Full disclaimer, I’m part of the “bubble club” for Treveri. Everything they make is high quality and a fantastic value (a few of their wines are even served at the White House). Their Blanc de Noir carries a nose of rose petals and raisins with flavors of orange peel, red apple, and floral undertones.  This bottle is excellent on a warm day or to break out for a celebration (even the small ones). Not too sweet and not too dry, the Goldilocks of Brut sparkling wines. 91 points

Aaron: Crisp apple and seawater nose.  Lots of fruity pears and red apple.  Not super harsh and doesn’t remind me of a traditional brut.  Pretty tasty and full.  90 points

Teri: Light smell with flavors of pear and peach on the wine. Balanced bubbled and flavor. I enjoy the crispness of the sparkling wine plus the beautiful flavor. This bottle is not only beautiful but also delicious. Great gift or bring to a festive party!  90 points

Aaron:  The nose on this brut was dark, organic cherries and the flavor was very very (VERY) dry.  Some mildly tart raspberries and root veggies combined with a hint of grapefruit and bing cherry.  89 points 

Teri: This is a dry sparkling wine but still has notable flavors and a quality finish. After the cranberry-strawberry nose, I tasted flavors of dried strawberries then lingering raw Spanish peanut. This bottle is refreshing and good for many occasions but not my personal favorite. 87 points

Aaron:  We got this wine “for free” from Splash and I’m really glad they sent it.  The almond, apple smell molded into a flavor of vanilla and crisp apples.  There was a bit of white raspberry but what won me over was the tons of cream, which was unexpected for a bubbly.  This was easy drinking but bold with an intense, lemony finish.  91 points

Teri: This sparkling wine was easy to drink but very flavorful! Not too dry but not too sweet, this sparkling carries flavors of red apple, fresh peach, and pear. Also with present, but mild bubbles, this one is bound to be a favorite among a wide audience. 91 points
