A new French Sparkling Wine that embodies Julie's joyful spirit.
Bridging the gap between popular Italian Prosecco and traditionally expensive Champagne, MBJ is set to shake up the Sparkling Wine category...
Crafted by native Bordeaux producer, Julie Rispal, MBJ is a Blanc de Blancs Brut made in France.
A unique bottling method, which involves adding carbon dioxide during the bottling process, results in a wine with delicate pearling bubbles, as fine as the best Champagne.
With subtle flower and fruit aromas and fine, delicate bubbles, MBJ delivers the French charm, flavour and fine pearling bubbles of Champagne, at a price point that is competitive with Prosecco.
A sweet touch
1/3 red sweet Vermouth + 2/3 mbJ with an orange slice

Made by Julie is a French sparkling wine created by Julie Rispal, who spent 15 years working with one of the top wine merchants in Bordeaux. She was disappointed in the ever-increasing prices of champagne and a lack of quality in sparkling wine competitors. She created MBJ to bridge the gap between the fine taste and effervescence of Champagne with a price tag closer to a Prosecco. Each 750 ml clear glass bottle of this sparkling white wine is made using MBJ’s unique bottling process to ensure a glass full of beautiful, pearling bubbles just like your favorite high-end champagne. A bold, graphic black and gold label adds to the high-end appeal.
On popping open the cork, a shower of fine bubbles rises and pops, exactly the kind of fun and fizz we want from a sparkling wine! The aroma of the wine is fresh and sour, and hints at a refreshing glass ahead. The taste delivers on what the scent promises! Although this wine has an 11% ABV, we thought it overall had a sweet, juicy grape taste. It would be easy to forget we were drinking alcohol at all! MBJ is crisp and flavorful, with the typical “bitterness” and sourness of wine only coming through after a few sips. This sparkling wine was delicious on its own for those who like a fine, fruity sparkling wine with lots of bubbles.
We could also see the sweet and refined flavor being an excellent mixer for some bubbly cocktails! MBJ said they set out to bridge the gap between the sophisticated flavors of champagne and the affordability of Prosecco, and we think they’ve succeeded! This sparkling wine felt just as special and delicious as a glass of champagne, and at a much lower price point (which we think makes it a great choice for entertaining!)
Julie Rispal created this fizz to bridge the gap between Prosecco and increasingly expensive Champagnes. Fresh notes of pear, peach, green apple and lemon deliver freshness, acidity and fruit with a soft finish. A blend of 60% Chardonnay, 25% Semillon and 15% Ugni Blanc. GH Alc 11%
