Often, we don’t need a reason to enjoy sparkling wine, but nothing screams New Year’s Eve quite like popping a bottle of bubbly! Fizzy, refreshing, and crisp, sparklers are a crowd-pleaser that will pair with just about anything, making them perfect for your New Year’s shindig. Whoever you’re hosting and whatever your budget may be, I have a find to help you ring in 2021 right!
First is a classic sparkling, the Brummell Blanc De Blancs Brut. It’s subtle with fine bubbles, notes of soft apple, and a long-lasting finish. You’ll taste yeasty notes that are dry and crisp. This find is ultra wallet-friendly, perfect for a large crowd! $11
The Charles de Fère Réserve Rosé Dry Sparkling is not sweet, but it is fruit-forward with notes of strawberries and cherries. This sparkling is from France and is made in the same way as Champagne but without the price tag. It’s also great for an after-dinner treat for dessert. $15
Calling all French Champagne lovers! You’re going to want to try this pick. The Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve, a true French Champagne, has floral aromas, a touch of fruit, and a more round finish. $20
Veuve Clicquot is always at the top of the list for bubbles for good reason—it’s really good! The Yellow Label Brut Champagne is their signature brut non-vintage that is crisp and silky, with toasty vanilla notes. $48
Last but not least and a bit of a splurge (but worth every penny) is the Billecart-Salmon Rosé. On the nose, you’ll smell delicate notes of red berries and zest of citrus. It’s light, elegant and will pair with just about anything! $65
