Korbel Brut is light and crisp, with spicy fruit flavors. It is finished with a 1% dosage for a balanced medium-dry finish
Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Classic Korbel brut, elegant, delicate and inexpensive. Nobody does a better job at this price. The wine is dry, with subtle lime, strawberry, peach, yeast and vanilla flavors, and a finish of real elegance. Hard to believe they produced 750,000 cases. - S.H. (12/31/2006) - 87
Another fine brut from Korbel, dry, yeasty and citrusy, just like a good bubbly should be. It's a little rough and scoury in the bubbles, but at this price, a good deal.
