Wine Review Comic: Veuve Devienne Rose’ Sec Sparkling Wine

click on comic to enlarge

Sparkling wines receive a rating that indicates the sugar content (that is, grams per liter), or sweetness of the wine. The most popular of these is the “Brut” (meaning, dry) rating, which is also commonly considered to be the most food friendly.

The Veuve Devienne falls in the the “Sec” rating for sparkling wines, indicating it has a range of 17-32 grams of sugar per liter of wine. This wine does well with the sec style, offering a smooth, very pleasant mouth feel. While this wine certainly falls outside the popular Brut category, it is an easily drinkable, not too sweet style sparkling.

If you’re in the Flagstaff area, you can find this sparkling wine for an affordable price at The Wine Loft, Flagstaff, AZ

  1. Cloudberries used to be available in the very obliging wet meadow at the bottom of the hill from my house 1/2 block away until further housing interrupted their regular growth. I will try this wine Just for the remembrance of these rare and lovely jewels of the tundra. I appreciate the occasional reference to Alaskan fauna and flora even though the wines are far more difficult to get than the elusive cloudberry.
