23 Mar Best Budget Bubbles are Back!
Our two favorite inexpensive sparkling wines are back! Don’t balk at the low prices. These babies might be budget-friendly, but they’re up to our standards of quality. We’re enjoying these wines on our own dinner tables (not to mention in Mimosas and other cocktails!) and you should too!
NV L’Conti Blanquette de Limoux, France
On Sale $12.99
A traditional method sparkling wine from the Languedoc made with 90% of the ancient variety Mauzac, and the remainder Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Soft apple, lemon, and stones on the nose and follow on the palate yielding a approachable sparkler that is dry without being harsh or too tart. Perfect for an aperitif or to pair with light seafood or ceviche.
NV Kraemer Blanc de Blancs Brut, France
On Sale $7.99… Next lowest price online is $14.94!
This is perhaps THE best value we’ve found in sparkling wine. It’s a true Blanc de Blancs, meaning it is 100% Chardonnay. Delicate, with a hint of spice on the nose and a creamy, fresh palate with an abundance of bubbles. This stuff is good enough to drink all on its own, and is a perfect match with rich cheeses and cured meats.
