Poema Cava Brut (Penedes) ($12)
A bright and airy cava with tart citrus notes and an elegant, musky finish that lingers with hints of spice and lemon. Great for sipping with cheese and olives as an apéritif, or as a nice dry contrast to a milky dessert like custard or cheesecake.
De Chanceny Crémant de Loire Brut ($15)
This dry, pale gold sparkler has a lively, tickling effervescence and a grapefruit and honey finish. It's citrusy, clean, and light, great for pairing with turkey, cranberries, and cream sauces.
Roederer Estate Brut Rosé NV ($27)
The prestigious French winery Champagne Louis Roederer founded an estate in the cool Anderson Valley in 1982. This smooth, nonvintage sparkling rosé is dominated by pinot noir, which adds lovely fruit to the flavor and a nice dose of blush to the finish. It includes up to 20 percent oak-aged reserve wine and is characterized by subtle herb and red raspberry accents, but with a stiff mineral backbone.
