Sparklig wines I enjoy.

 Monmousseau Brut Rosé Crémant De Loire, Ac, Loire, France, Méthode Traditionnelle

One of my favorite sparkling wines! This wine comes from Loire Valley, France.  It is the second largest sparkling wine producer in France after Champagne.
When you see the word cremant on a bottle that means sparkling wine is made by traditional method. 
This particular wine is made by the traditional method and blends Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Grolleau. Blend of red and white berries gives to this wine taste of summer berries, little bit of toast, aromas of apricot. Very soft on the palate, good mousse . Long, creamy  finish.

François Schwach Le Crémant Blanc De Blancs 2007, Ac Alsace

 Another bubbly made by traditional method. It' called blanc de blancs, that means that it is  made from only white grapes Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
This is medium bodied wine with aromas of apple, fresh bread, peach. On a palate it is soft, good balance of acidity with lovely lingering finish.
