Holidays, New Year's, christening the toboggan - it's always the right time for bubbly.
WHAT: Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Rating: NNN
WHERE: Penedès, Spain
WHY: Maybe these guys should raise their prices, because people probably think, since it's only one-quarter the price of French champagne, that Segura is at most only half as good. Wrong. Super-dry, but in an agreeable, lemony way. No bubble trouble here.
PRICE: 750 ml/$14.95
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #158493)
