If you love big, toasty California Chardonnays, this is the bubbly for you. A lot of spicy tropical fruit and pear flavors are balanced with lively acidity. Drink now though 2012.

Ripe and juicy, like a Chardonnay with bubbles. Shows notes of toasty tropical fruit, spice and pear. Drink now.

Lots of savory vanilla, orange and sweet Meyer lemon flavors in this sparkling wine. The bubbles are a little rough and scoury, but it’s pretty good for the price.

Bold and juicy, with tropical fruit and spicy vanilla aromas that lead to easygoing pear and cinnamon roll flavors. Drink now.

Good price for a sparkling wine of this quality. It’s smooth and creamy with layers of Mandarin orange, peach, vanilla and smoky yeast that finish with a honeyed richness.

Basically a blanc de blancs, and a pretty nice one at that, despite a certain roughness of texture. It’s dry and crisp, showing yeasty flavors of peaches, limes and vanilla.

Tastes like Chardonnay with bubbles and yeast. With a slightly sweet finish, this bubbly has flavors of limes, green apples and lees.
