Yep…it’s that time of the year again. With a focus on romance, Valentines celebrations are often accompanied by a nice bottle of bubbly. Yes, sparkling bottles are often used for celebratory occasions within the United States and romanic evenings, but are sadly often forgot during other parts of the year.
Here are a few which will pair perfectly with your Valentine’s day plans or add sparkle to any other day in your life.
Looking to Impress?:
Veuve Clieqot Brut (around $45/bottle) – This bottle carries prestige and is bound to impress not only by it’s label but also it’s great flavor. (Aaron’s top pick)
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige ($15-22/bottle) – Impress with the Mumm name and this dry, versatile, and delicious bottle.
Mumm Napa Cuvee M ($15-22/bottle) – One of the most widely found Mumm bottles in most retailers. This is Mumm’s flagship and it continues to please with crisp flavors and smooth texture.
Save on money, not on quality or flavor:
Taralyn Brut (about $10/bottle)- Flavors of peach and apricot make this bottle perfect for sharing with someone just as sweet. (Aaron’s #1 affordable pick)
Segura Viudas Cava Extra Dry (around $10/bottle) – Flavorful and full of bubbles; Easy to enjoy from start to finish.
Easy to find and will always please:
Korbel Brut (around $10/bottle) – this standard staple can be easily found and delivers flavor and quality for the price.
Kirkland Champagne Brut (around $20/bottle) – Costco does it right when it comes to store brands. Normally utilizing well known producers to make their own label, this wine delivers high quality and flavor under the Kirkland label.
Wilson Creek Almond Champagne (around $15/bottle) – If you like the sweeter side, Wilson Creek delivers this bottle (plus more) with an added flavor, yielding a semi-sweet and versatile champagne. Enjoy on it’s own or with fruit juice for a great mixed champagne cocktail.
Cupcake Prosecco (around $10/bottle) – another easy to find bottle for those who like their drink sweeter. The flavors of peaches and cream with lemon and apricot make for an easy drinking or mixing bubbling bottle.
