New Years Eve Bubbles
Here are my recommendations at various prices points:
Gruet - produced in New Mexico. The Gruet Rose and Gruet Extra Dry are currently on sale at Goody Goody for $10.99 per bottle.
Gruet - step up a little and enjoy their blanc de blanc - a very nice wine for the price.
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.
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.
