It's Time To Get Bubbly!
Missoula Wine Merchants has all your bubbly bases covered for New Year's Eve, whether you need a dozen bottles for an epic party or one sensational Champagne to celebrate the special occasion. Here are some of our favorites:
*Montsarra Cava Brut (Spain)- $17
One of our very favorite Cavas! With fresh apple and pear flavors that are balanced by a creamy body, Montsarra's Cava packs a tremendous bang for your buck and has a little something that everyone can enjoy.
*Jansz Sparkling Rosé (Tasmania, Australia) - $26
From the peachy hue to the zippy bubbles to the delectable apricot and peach flavors, this delightful gem from Tasmania can be summed up in a single word: Fun.
*Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant Brut (Loire, France) - $32
This 100% Chenin Blanc from Vouvray starts with a hint of sweetness but finishes dry and zippy. Honeycrisp apples, nectarines, and exotic spices brilliantly blend to make a fantastic sparkling wine that will rival many Champagnes in texture and flavor. This is what we'll be serving at midnight!
Brunch & Dinner Bubbles
*Patrick Bottex "La Cueille" Bugey-Cerdon Rosé - $26
Behold, the perfect brunch bubbly! This Rosé pairs beautifully with omelets, fruit, Belgian waffles, or just about any late breakfast fare, thanks to its low alcohol content and crisp, yet lightly sweet body.
*2013 Schramberg Blanc de Blancs Brut - $42
Schramberg's bubbly offering is straightforward and easygoing, with enough body and acidity to add some sparkle to an elegant New Year's Eve dinner. Think seafood mixed grill: halibut with lime butter, crab legs, or--of course!--oysters on the half-shell.
Grower Champagnes Make Any Occasion Especially Bubbly
*Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé - $98
With its exceptional balance, delicate nose, and poised finish, Billecart-Salmon's Rosé is just the bottle to reach for when you need a Champagne that's worthy of a memorable occasion.
*2007 Alaya Blanc de Blancs - $95
Fine bubbles. Pale golden coloring. Balanced cream and acidity. These are all qualities of the best sparkling wines and Alaya's phenomenal vintage Blanc de Blancs has them in spades.
