Sparkling Pointe brings tiny bubbles & Méthode Champenoise to Long Island

Sparkling Pointe is packed with tiny bubbles Sparkling Pointe, a North Fork producer dedicated solely to sparkling wines, will be featured at Brooklyn Uncorked 2009 May 13, from 4-8 pm at Brooklyn Academy of Music.

 The French Méthode Champenois wines will be featured in the Union Square Greenmarket May 15 as well. The first two editions of its collection – the 2004 Brut ($29) and the award-winning 2004 Topaz Imperial.($33) from wine maker Gilles Martin are the fruits of a labor of love.

Long Island vintners Tom and Cynthia Rosicki produce nothing but sparkling wines on their estate whose French Manor styled winery building and grounds welcomes guests this summer for tastings, private parties, corporate events and weddings.

The 2004 Brut is elegant with rich Gala apple and Comice pear flavors and an aroma of Brioche. Full of exuberant tiny bubbles, it's full, balanced and complex with a soft, creamy texture and a lingering finish. 

Earning its name from its delicate salmon pink coloring, the 2004 Topaz Imperial Rosé is fruity with the bright, fresh flavors of strawberry, red cherry and just a hint of cassis. The finish is long, delicate and buttery.
