Pregaming the Classy Way (Cheap White Wine)
White wine has always given me my best drunks. Giggly, physically tipsy, and it hits fast. Gulp down two glasses and you’re half way to heaven. It’s pretty economical considering it has proven nutritional value. You don’t need to feel guilty for skipping dinner.
Here are some cheapies but goodies:
Andre Goichot Cotes du Ventoux Blanc 2009, $12
Sweet n’ smooth like honey with distinct apple/pear undertones. Not overly dry.
Wolffer Estate Big Apple Wine NV, $11
Rare white wine in that it has no after bite. Made from apples instead of grapes, it’s sooo sweet, you might have to put a lil gin in it for some extra kick. But the sweetness is very adult. A floral aroma and delicate finish make it a worthy excursion from your typical bottle.
Antech Blanquette de Limoux Grande Reserve Brut $15
Hailing from the South of France, this is not officially champagne (it’s cheaper), but it’s made in the arguable birthplace for this worldwide treasure. Unlike the others, it’s not sweet. It’s yeasty, warm…nice creamy bubble. This skank comes cheap. Tastes expensive.
Au bon Climat Chardonnay, $16
Not your typical Chardonnay. Toasty oak bits mingling amongst hazelnut and pear notes. This bottle is sold on the balance.
Segura Viudas Brut Cava, $10
LOW IN SUGAR!!!! At 7g for a bottle, it’s perfect for no guilt, lots f sparkle. Taste is full, rich—especially in cheap whites. Look forward to a distinctly almond aftertaste.
