Moms are the best. We want to help you show her your appreciation for all she does with a sampling of sparkling wines (and a true Champagne)! Come on by after brunch and enjoy some bubbles on us!
NV Covides “Elocuente” Brut Cava, Penendes, Spain
On Sale $8.99
This Cava is made the same way true Champagne is made, method champenoise, which means the bubbles are naturally created inside the bottle, producing a better taste than artificial or charmat methods. This wine is elegant with apple fruit, rich textures, and a frothy stream of bubbles rarely found at this price point.
NV Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noirs Rose Carneros, CA
On Sale $16.99
Also available in 375ml (half bottles) $8.99
The salmon-colored, fruity non-vintage Blanc de Noirs reveals hints of wild cherries and strawberries in its soft, round, off-dry style. Most consumers will think of it as a dry sparkling wine. Attractive in an easygoing, aperitif style.
NV Pol Roger Reserve Champagne, France
On Sale $49.99
Straw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Réserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Réserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.
