The only way to describe Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine is wow. Run away now, before even reading this. Stay the hell away from Trader Joe’s Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine. It’s a peach sparkling wine. Peach. Sparkling. Wine. That should have been my first clue to not buy it. Instead, seeing it on the shelf for a weeks, I finally broke down and puchased a bottle after reading some positive reviews on the internet. I might as well have picked up a sixer of Bartles & Jaymes and called it a night.
Amour de Paris is a peach flavored sparkling wine. It smells like fake peach flavoring. It tastes like they took some crappy champagne and added fake peach flavoring. I’m pretty sure the peach flavor only made things worse, not better. Whomever thought this was a good idea should lose their job.
After all, why would I want sparkling wine preflavored with peach? Was there a focus group somewhere who thought this was a great idea? Is making bellinis too hard? Is the actual effort of mixing peach juice with bubbly beyond the mixing skills of the every day consumer? I just cannot fathom why this exists.
Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine: The Verdict
Now, you could argue that it’s only $5, and at that price I should have low expectations. I disagree. For that same amount, I could have gone to Chipotle and bought a burrito. And I would have much rather had the burrito. However, I’ve seen from the comments here that there is a minority of you, albeit a vocal minority, that find Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine to be absolutely wonderful. So maybe some people actually do enjoy what it has to offer. Good for them, because Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine is still not for me.
