U Mes U Cygnus Organic Sador Brut Nature Cava, Penedès D.O., Spain: Toasty and earthy rather than fruity Spanish sparkling wine. Still refreshing at an exceptional price. Cava is the Spanish term for bubbly and translates to "cave." Buy by the caseload for holiday parties. Love the refreshing acidity here to enjoy this wine as an aperitif or companion to fried chicken. This sparkler is a blend of 40% Parellada, 30% Macabeo and 30% Xarello grapes and the producer uses the classic Champagne method for the second fermentation in the bottle. Drink: 2022-2024. 352856 11.50% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 91/100. April 15, 2022 Best Value Sparkling Wine. Outstanding Organic Wine Full Review
Cave de Hoen Mausberg Brut Crémant d'Alsace Blanc De Blancs, Alsace A.C., France: Toasty and refreshing with an expensive looking label which is always a plus at fancy get-togethers where you don’t want to blow the budget but serve good stuff. White peach and melon and baked bread. The Alsace wine region is right next to Champagne, so it shares many similarities in climate and soil, and thus style. Pair with sushi and shellfish.
