Product Review: Amusant Sparkling Wine

I’m going to start doing product reviews on my blog in addition to my witty and insightful book reviews (please, please add in the note of sarcasm when reading that sentence).

Why? It’s fun and I like doing them.

So. In honor of Easter I purchased this lovely bottle of sweet bubbly wine from TJs. I had made a fancy mushroom-and-green-onion quiche and thought a little bubbly might be nice with it. Also, I *love* this bottle and was looking for an excuse to try this. It also comes in pink, which I really want to try next.

It’s yummy. It’s quite sweet and very bubbly. Probably a little too sweet for some folks’ taste. I am not a wine critic so that’s about as in-depth as you’re going to get from me, although I *will* say that I may have detected a floral note in there somewhere. Sweet, bubbly, fresh, definitely a dessert type wine. Not for those who like their sparkling wines dry.

What I did really like was when I was about halfway done with my glass, I refilled it with sparkling water. That was actually even better than the straight wine. It cut the sweetness and was very drinkable but still bubbly and special. I still have, oh, 3/4 of the bottle so I will be drinking the rest of it this week, cut with sparkling water. It’s a week-long celebration! As my friend Shea says, why NOT have sparkling wine every night?

  1. Sister, I am ALL about bubbly every night of the week! YUM! I just finished a bottle of prosecco and am moving on the Amusant next! xo

  2. i love sparkling wine. there is another bubbly wine that i get all the time at TJs that is kinda sweet. i forget what its called though (great comment eh?) anyway, next time i get it ill mention it to you. but I’ve seen this one and its next on my list.

    and yay, product reviews. honestly, i love this kinda thing. i like knowing what the people i love and trust actually use.

    • Ooh yes, please do tell. The other one Shea told me about was lambrusco — it’s a softly sparkling red wine that I am in love with now. It’s pretty cheap at TJs too.

      I love product review too — both doing them and reading them! I’m going to try and do them more often on here.

  3. I LOVE Moscato!! Matt actually got me hooked on it :p And I’ve never even thought of drinking it with sparkling water, but that’s a great idea!! I’ll have to look for this brand :) Sounds good!
