Vintage American Bubbly


C and I recently celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. This was a quiet one. We have both been traveling and working too much so we just stayed in and popped a bottle of ’03 Iron Horse Brut LD (a close up of this divine sparkler above). My brother Ben and my sister-in-law, Lauren gave us this yummy bottle after their recent trip to the winery.

I usually go in for old world bubbly especially when I’m going vintage, but this bottle is delicious and really interesting. Layered, zippy, creamy, biscuity, floral and well-balanced, this American vintage sparkler is a new favorite. I really love Iron Horse but had never indulged in their vintage LD (Late Disgorged)- which basically means that the wine is kept on its lees (yeast) longer than usual- this process can add more of those yummy brioche and toasty notes to your bubbly.

We drank this deliciousness with this dish which I’ve been making for years- it’s always a winner and so easy! Its savoriness matched the creaminess of the wine perfectly.

I highly recommend. Thanks B&L!
