2 Sparkling Wine Bargains for Holiday Celebrations

Francois Montand Blanc de Blancs Brut, France

A very good value at $12 or less a bottle.  Delicious and elegant, dry “methode traditionnelle” sparkling white wine that tastes like fine champagne. Very fine effervescence, pale gold color. Delectable on its own or with light appetizers.  Highly recommended!

Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne Rosé “Perle d’Aurore,” France

A pink, dry bubbly.  It has a lot of personality and can stand up to food, like salmon.  My guests like it, and it looks beautiful in a champagne flute.  About $16 a bottle
