Wine experts; is there a French equivalent of the Italian Moscato D'Asti?

Jump to last reply

My wife is not much of a drinker, but she loves the semi-sweet slightly fizzy Italian wine, Moscato D'Asti by La Spinetta. We will be spending some time in France this coming May, and I would like to be able to find a substitute for her in Paris. Does anyone know what an equivalent French wine would be?

I don't drink sweet wines, but the Asti is quite nice. One can taste a fruity back flavor; apricots, perhaps. If anyone can steer me in the right direction it will save me from doing a lot of comparison testing --- not that there is anything wrong with slugging down a series of nice wines, except some of them are like drinking perfumed syrup, IMHO
