Tasting Notes: Donkey and Goat 2012 Lily’s Cuvée Chardonnay
In that casual game of preference, Would You Rather, we’re often faced with important decisions, like raising a child at 15 or never having kids, or losing a pinky toe or never eating steak again. During one of these games, when asked about giving up beer for eternity, we came to a realization: while undesirable, the parting of ways wouldn't be the end of the world -- and we could do it without becoming a hard-hitting liquor drinker. How? With a lifetime supply of sparkling wine, and specifically, a style of sparkling wine called pétillant naturel. One glass of the 2012 Lily's Cuvée Chardonnay ($28) from California’s Donkey & Goat winery and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
