    Champagnes and sparkling wines are overpriced to begin with. But I enjoy the bubbly to another run of the mill white varietal. What I like most about this sparkling, aside from the great price, is the quality of the bubbles. It feels more like a top shelf champagne. It's very dry and the bubbles have a velvety quality. The flavor is very refined although if you are looking for the exotic notes of a Cliquot or similar, perhaps this isn't as much so. Personally, I prefer it to Cliquot. It's much better than Gloria Ferrer, Feuillat, Mums and any of the others under $40. I even prefer it to the Moets et al in the $50-60 range. If I had more to spend, I'd probably go for the Louis Roederers which I think are the wonderful as well. The Roederers just do it right.
