Straw hue with light aroma of vanilla touches, citrus and macadamia nuts.

Palate–Lively bubbles, nice structure with flavors of pear, Granny Smith apples and citrus.

Fleeting finish

This is my perennial, favorite, value bubbly. It tends to run any where from $15-$22.  I found it for $15 and when you find it down at the bottom range buy it! My wife and I had this with Christmas Eve hors d’oeuvres of fresh shrimp, baguette, and baked Brie in puff pastry with orange marmalade covering the top under the pastry layer.  It was wonderful and fitting of the occasion so raise a glass.

(*NV means non-vintage meaning the grapes/juice used can be from different years.)
