New Years Eve Bubbles

champagne
It is customary to ring in the new year with a glass of bubbly.

Here are my recommendations at various prices points:

Under $15

Gruet - produced in New Mexico.  The Gruet Rose and Gruet Extra Dry  are currently on sale at Goody Goody for $10.99 per bottle.

Under $25

Gruet - step up a little and enjoy their blanc de blanc - a very nice wine for the price.

Under $50

Veuve Clicquot - from the producer credited with inventing the process for removing the dead yeast cells from champagne - their gold label champagne is always a standout.

Henriot "Souverain" Brut - rated 94 points by Wine Spectator.  Rich flavors of green apples and hints of apricot.

Under $100

La Reve - from Domaine Carneros.  Still one of my favorite sparkling wines - Check out my Wine Note.

Over $100 (The big splurge)

Cristal - there are several options at this price point, but Cristal is a standout with tiny bubbles and refined flavors of apple and pear.  It's Tamara's favorite for really special occasions.
