Exigeante is a fun new French Sparkling Wine that I had the pleasure of tasting recently! This wine was the vision of French-born Claire Vidal. She is passionate about entrepreneurship as well as traveling the world. A true Champagne lover, she was able to start her own wine label with a winemaker in Bordeaux! Jérôm Barret was able to capture claire’s vision when it came to a perfectly balanced, fruity, and fun wine.
Sparkling wine is all about fun times, celebration, pairings, and simply enjoying everyday life. I know some of my favorite moments to open some bubbly are really any occasion!
I was excited to see such a fun lineup with the Exigeante brand. I was able to taste the Brut made with Sauvignon, Colombard, Gros Manseng, and Chardonnay grapes. This wine is crisp and delicious, super refreshing, and elegant. It’s ideal for sipping at home, during brunch, for happy hour, and even dinner. The balance in this wine is really beautiful with nice aromas and flavors of passionfruit, citrus, and such liveliness.
I was so impressed with this wine and at $24 you simply can’t beat it! This wine is also sustainably grown, and all their wines are certified High Environmental Value, which I think just shows you the extra steps they’re taking in producing such a high quality sparkling wine. It’s the perfect wine to bring to a party, or have out when you’re having friends over. It’s a wine to take with you on a picnic, and anywhere else you can enjoy bubbly.
If you’re seeking something thats so beautiful from the Southwest of France, you’ll want to try Exigeante. Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love. Please pair responsibly!
