Barton & Guestier Blanc Sparkling: Review
Before we start: If you are new to drinking non-alcoholic wine try my 2 minute Guide to Non-Alcoholic Wine. Barton & Guestier Blanc sparkling wine tastes 100% like an alcoholic sparkling. I doubt anyone would pick the difference in a blind tasting. It’s also very tasty. The colour is clear pale yellow-green, and the nose is one of primary fruit with clean, medium intensity. In the mouth it is dry with quite high acidity, light body, and citrus flavours alongside a hint of honeysuckle and a squizz of dough. The presence of a dough-like flavour is very common in champagne-style alcoholic wines but rare in non-alcoholic ones. Good finish. Very enjoyable drink.
The bottle cost AUD 25 which is a premium price considering there’s no alcohol tax built into it. However, arguably the best sparkling white non-alcoholic wine.
Energy is 85kJ per 100ml, so roughly one fifth of the same volume of alcoholic wine.

Where to Buy
I got mine online from Craftzero. It’ll cost about AUD 25 which is at the top end for a non-alcoholic wine.
