December's Featured Wines

This month we will finish up the year with sparkling wine. Time to get festive!

Lilbert-Fils Blanc de Blanc Brut NV, Champagne, France $67.99 (only $57.79 with GOGO discount)
Best in Show

Without a doubt the best sparkling wines in the world come from Champagne, and this is one of the classiest Blanc de Blancs we’ve ever tasted! Honeysuckle and pear flow from the glass with accents of white peaches, citrus and flowers. Rich, toasty and vibrant on the palate with a faint hint of hazelnut and apple skins. The finish is minerally and exceptionally long. Very charming indeed.

Sipp Mack Cremant de Alsace Brut NV, France $29.99 (only $25.49 with GOGO discount)

Damn this is good!  Soft and supremely elegant, this is just begging to be opened by a fire pit with good friends and snacks. Crisp orchard fruits, white flowers, lemon curd and minerals tickle the palate in an almost endless joy ride.  Once it hits your lips, you’ll have a hard time hiding your smile.

Zardetto Prosecco Brut NV, Italy $14.99 (only $12.74 with GOGO discount)
Best Bargain

You know, we’ve been sipping on this wine for years and one thing has never changed…it’s still so damn tasty for the money!  From the Venetian town of Conegliano, this is a very charming sparkler.  Fresh and bright, it serves up floral aromatics with hints of apple and peach.  A lovely aperitif or, if the mood strikes, breakfast wine!

Patrick Bottex Bugey-Cerdon “La Cueille” NV, France $23.99 (only $20.39 with GOGO discount)
Most Interesting

If you don’t know about this wine by now, you’ve been sleeping through the past few years of Girls on Grapes!  A GoGo favorite, this is 90% Gamay with a pinch of local varietal Poulsard.  It is an off-dry sparkling rosé that will surely provide the perfect beginning, middle or end to any evening. Slightly sweet yet freshly tart, it’s reminiscent of strawberry shortcake.  The bottle will be empty before you know it!
