Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne (375ml)
Review Date: 12-31-2009
Traditional notes of wheat toast, brioche, freshly cut apples and apple skins rise from the glass on lively, persistent bubbles. The palate is beautifully balanced with baked apple, a dusting of brown sugar, and citrus rind all rounded out with a touch of toastiness. A great value in Champagne.

Bellussi Prosecco di Valdobbiadene
Review Date: 07-30-2009
Bellussi is a vineyard in the Valdobbiadene region north of Venice…Prosecco is a late-ripening, delicate white wine grape which is grown extensively in this area. Together they have produced a fresh, crisp, sparkling wine that our Italian wine-buyer calls the “epitome of Prosecco.” I have to agree. This is a very dry, refreshing sparkler with delicate flavors of pear and yellow apple. It is subtle and elegant, but not too soft to be forgettable. Great value!
