Sparklers and Champagne for New Year’s Eve 2019!

Pere Ventura Brut Rosé NV

Here are some great sparkling wines from France, Italy, USA, Argentina, and South Africa. I drink them all (not at the same time)…and so should you!

Philippe Gonet Extra-Brut 3210: Bone-dry on purpose. The label “3210″ means 3 years of aging, 2 terroirs, 1 grape variety, and 0 dosage. About $70 if you can find it. Try! (My favorite Champagne in the world.)

Pere Ventura Tresor (Treasure) Cava Brut Rosé: A subtle wine that doesn’t bowl you over with strawberries, nicely dry, made with 100% Trepat grapes. $14-17.

Mionetto Prosecco Brut DOC: Dry, crisp and light-bodied. A bargain at $12-15.

Champagne Palmer & Co. Brut Reserve: Much more widely available this year than before. $40.

Marc Hebrart Selection Champagne Brut NV: Complex brew of Chard and Pinot Noir. Marvelous.

Gruet Blanc de Blancs Sauvage NV: Yes it’s from New Mexico. 100% Chardonnay and the best $20 you’ll ever spend.

Amalaya Brut Nature: Unusual blend of Riesling and Torrontés from Argentina. Under $15. Wow.

Graham Beck Brut Rosé NV: From South Africa; Chard and Pinot Noir, $18.
