Since we are heading into the holiday season (I can’t believe it is already November!), I want to start featuring some wines that are perfect for your holiday gatherings. I had a Champagne over the last week that really stood out as a great find for the price. Bernard Tornay “Carte d’Or” Brut Champagne is a fabulous buy if you are looking for a delicious sparkler and don’t want to drain your wallet.
This bubbly has aromas of red berries, hazelnuts, and fresh-baked bread. The creamy palate features tastes of cherries and citrus with notes of bread and lively acidity. A solid Champagne that pairs well with soft cheeses, oysters, or as an aperitif! (B+, $35)
