•Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve. With a 91 rating from Wine Spectator, this bubbly from the Champagne region of France contains 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. Its taste offers an appealing mix of juicy, fresh-cut apple, pear tart, pickled ginger, honey and lemon flavors.
•Gruet Brut & Gruet Rose. With an 89 rating from Wine Spectator, the richly-styled Brut from this winery in New Mexico delivers a crisp and toasty flavor with spicy tropical fruit aromas and appealing baked apple, cinnamon and herb notes.
Their Rose, with an 88 rating from Wine Spectator, is rich and fruity in a dry, Brut style. With nicely layered, crisp citrus, cinnamon and cream flavors, the taste stays on the palate with hints of strawberry, raspberry and cherry.
•Adami Prosecco Garbel. From the hilly vineyards in the Colli Trevigiani area, Garbel means ” a dry, crisp, pleasantly tart wine”. This Prosecco is full-flavored with a crisp acidity, its bubbles releasing a complex blend of ripe peach and melon notes.
