Quality Bubbly on a Budget

Posted by

For the value conscious wine consumers, we have several quality alternatives to Champagne. These include Italian Prosecco & Lambrusco, Spanish Cava and US sparkling wine that are all giving French Champagne a run for its money!

Cavas El Cep Marques de Gelida Brut Gran Reserva 2008

"This frothy effort exhibits more brioche and buttered citrus notes, light to medium body, and a clean/pure style. Again, it is a super value in sparkling white wine." - Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate, 90 points!

Our price: $13.95

Lini Oreste & Figli Lambrusco Emilia Rosso Labrusca 910 NV

"Overtly grapey at first sniff, the aromas and flavors expanded to raspberry, cherry and plums, with touches of pleasantly bitter spices, finishing surprisingly dry for its up-front fruitiness." - Wine Spectator

This sparkler is currently the trend in the Manhattan restaurant and bar scene and will run you upwards of $15 a glass at a swanky watering hole. Serve this at your holiday party and impress your guests with this fun and refreshing drink.

Gloria Ferrer Brut Sonoma NV

"An exceptional value. Round and full-bodied, with rich, ripe apple, pear and honeydew melon flavors. This complex sparkler has a nice touch of yeast and doughy aromas that give it added character, turning creamy with a touch of vanilla." - Wine Spectator, 90 points!

"A wonderfully drinkable sparkling wine that appeals immediately for its balanced texture and rich flavors. Easy to like for its array of raspberries, limes, vanilla, toast and yeast. The sour lees note is nicely balanced with the sweet liqueur of dosage." - Wine Enthusiast, 90 points!

Mionetto Brut Prosecco Treviso NV

"Very good. Best of tasting and best value. Some Champagne-like finesse. Minerals, toast and real fruit tastes, especially apples and pears. A little bit of weight makes it especially good with food. Repeat favorite." - Wall Street Journal

Our price: $13.99

L. Mawby 'M. Lawrence Sex' Brut Rose NV

"Pinkish salmon hue. Red fruit aromas. Yeasty accents. Fruity, soft style. Delicious. A provocative blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes that are hand picked and carefully whole-cluster pressed. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, then blended with reserve wines and fermented a second time in a closed tank (the cuve close method). The wine is then filtered, dosaged, and bottled." - Winery

Our price: $19.95

Llopart Rose Brut Reserva 2010

"One of the most interesting sparkling blends I have ever seen. This dry, serious rose sparkler reveals a florescent pink color, a big, projected and perfumed nose of jammy strawberries and cherries, crisp acids and red currant and cherry notes on the palate. This neon pink wine stands out in the glass as well as one the palate. Moreover, it is a great value. Enjoy it over the next several years. Cava Liopart is the second oldest cava in Spain, having been founded by the Liopart family in 1385." - Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate, 91 point!
