M. Chevallier Brut Cava - $6

The holidays always seem to be jam packed with family asking for recommendations on sparkling wines and this year I thought to prepare myself with answers. Now, I know what you're thinking. Reviewing a slew of sparkling wines after New Years isn't much help to you. But, since most sparkling wines are of the non-vintage variety, consider this advice timeless.

First up, this Spanish sparkling is nearly transparent in color. On the nose its got some stone and mineral notes. In the mouth, it's tight bubbles and tart apple city - like a liquid Granny Smith. This Cava is light, crisp and easy to drink. A great choice for mixing with fruit juices or purees for your favorite mimosa-esque/belini-ish drink.
