Great Sparkling!

Riondo Pink Prosecco...$12.99
Riondo Prosecco...$12.99

"This effusively fruity, light-bodied offering offers terrific floral notes, persistent effervescence, and a clean, delicate finish. There is not much body or weight in this crystal clean, pure, sparkling white. It is an ideal aperitif to enjoy over the next year. It is an amazing Prosecco."

Jean Laurent produces some of our favorite Champagnes and still at amazing prices!

Jean Laurent N.V. Brut Blanc de Blancs...$49.99
"Revealing even more of a chalky/mineral character along with notes of wheat thins and citrus is the elegant non-vintage Brut Blanc de Blancs. This is an impressive, fuller-bodied offering than most wines of this genre. Still young and impressively endowed, it can be drunk now and over the next 5-7 years."

Rated 92+/100 The Wine Advocate

Jean Laurent N.V. Brut Blanc de Noirs...$49.99
"The non-vintage Brut Blanc de Noirs (100% Pinot Noir) is a light to medium-bodied Champagne that spent four years on its lees. Very perfumed, offering tiny pinpoint, persistent bubbles, loads of fruit on the attack, and good mineral/chalky flavors with impressive penetration as well as persistence, it is a beautiful, fresh yet authoritatively flavored Champagne to drink over the next 7-8 years."
-- Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

Jean Laurent N.V. Brut Rosé...$49.99
"Made from 100% Pinot Noir, the non-vintage Brut Rosé (which spent six years on its lees) is a dry, austere, long, medium to full-bodied rosé that screams "serious." Flavors of strawberries, wet stones, and tomato skins are found in this impressively endowed, structured, well-delineated effort. Consume it over the next 2-4 years."
