WHAT: Jackson-Triggs Méthode Cuve Close 2005 (sparkling) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Niagara Peninsula
WHY: If you find champagne (the actual French stuff) intimidatingly dry, you might want to try this. Combining Riesling grapes with Chardonnay and a Charmat secondary fermentation results in something more like bubbly white wine than Champers. Pop, fizz, sip, kiss.
PRICE: 750 ml/$14.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected liquor stores (product #563213)
