Bottles of 2021 J.L. Quinson Le Rosé French Fizz and 2021 J.L. Quinson Le Blanc French Fizz

French Fizz is…Fun!

Fast facts:

  • 2021 J.L. Quinson Le Rosé French Fizz, France ($6.99 @ Trader Joe’s, California)
  • 2021 J.L. Quinson Le Blanc French Fizz, France ($6.99 @ Trader Joe’s, California)

 

Psst…we’ve got the story on some excellent sparkling wines, just in time for summer! As the name implies, French Fizz sparkling wines come to us from France.

These two wines were like third grade me when sides were being chosen for dodge ball.  They screamed: “pick me, pick me, pick me!”  And I have to say, it was the marketer in me responding to the extremely clever packaging this producer employed to make these wines stand out. I was hoping that the wines would live up to the promise of the package. We are pleased to report that both do.

These are not going to rock your wine drinking self to the core. But they are going to help see you through a long hot summer, trust me on this. At just 10.5% alcohol, you can sip responsibly, all afternoon long. And if you don’t manage to finish a bottle, they come with a handy little swing top closure (to be deployed once you crack the beer-like bottle cap) that will help keep the bubbles fresh until you circle back to finish the bottle.

We are going to eschew our usual poetic tasting notes on these two wines. Don’t believe me?

All you really need to know is that they are deliciously refreshing, young and sans any detectable flaws. They are not too sweet, not too dry. At $6.99 a bottle, what is not to like?!
