Two Sparkling Wines To Help Ring in the New Year!

I really can’t think of a better time of year then New Year’s Eve to celebrate with a nice bottle of sparkling wine.  Here is one of my favorite bargain picks and a “splurge” pick that are sure to help usher in a wonderful 2012:

Bargain Pick- Cavit Prosecco Lunetta (NV)

This Prosecco is my pick for a great value sparkling wine.  I love Prosecco and appreciate when I can find a good bottle under $20.  This bottle can be picked up for around $12-14 and really gives you a wonderful bottle of wine for the price.  Refreshing flavors of green apple, peach, and pear are followed by a clean finish.  It’s easy to drink and sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Splurge Pick- Bollinger NV Brut Cuvee

I have shared this Champagne on my blog before but I wanted to mention it again because it is one of my favorites for the price.  The nose has smokey notes of apple and citrus. The palate has tastes of toasted nuts, ginger, and apple with hints of spice. A beautiful Champagne with fresh acidity and layers of intense flavor.  It’s one of the better Champagnes that I have found for around $50.  A great way to celebrate new beginnings! (A-/A)
