A Croser sparkling is one of the most reliable bottle of bubbles you can get, and this NV is no exception, with it being the perfect way to kick off your next dinner party. Being the bargain baby of the more famous Croser Vintage, this sparkling is right up there at the top of this price bracket with a fuller expression of flavour, from apples to grapefruits, and a layering of sweet yeast bun. Ripe stone fruits and whiffs of apple pie waft out of the glass, along with some citrus and dairy to compliment a layered palate that licks of buttered toast, with brioche-laced creamy notes and a swag of apple and stone fruit flavours divulging a fine mousse, with a dry, fruity finish. Phew. A crisp, dry, true ‘aperitif’ style sparkling made in the true methode traditionnelle.
