For those looking to add a little sparkle to their New Year’s Eve celebrations look no further than the shelves of Now You’re Cooking. Joel has compiled a list of bubbly that is sure to satisfy the palette and dazzle the guests. We’ll be open to help you find the perfect bottle (and snacks to accompany it!) until 6pm on December 31 and closed on New Year’s Day.
- Bisol Jeio Prosecco Brut $12.99
This Prosecco is on the off-dry side of Brut, with a lovely richness to the spiced pear and citrus zest notes that fill the palate. A fun and easy-drinking bubbly for cocktail hour, brunch, or a New Year’s toast.
- Gruet Brut $17.99
The Gruet family hails originally from Bethon in the Champagne region of France, and their flagship Brut, which is 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir and spends a minimum of 2 years on the lees, remains one of the best values in traditional method sparkling wine worldwide.
- Domaine Nicolas Brunet Vouvray Vintage Brut 2012 $21.99
This tiny father and son estate in Vouvray consistently over-delivers on quality for the price. With three plus years on the lees, this vintage Chenin Blanc is beautifully complex, with the signature orchard fruit and marzipan notes wrapped in a fine toasty mousse and perfectly balanced acid resounding on the mouth-watering finish.
- Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Vintage Brut 2016 $36.99
A quarter of the Chardonnay in this Vintage wine was aged in barrel, adding notes of brioche, orange peel, ginger, and caramelized apple to the crisp and bright acidity that lifts the wine on the finish. Schramsberg is an iconic American sparkling wine that has been the official White House sparkling wine since 1972.
- Champagne Jean Pernet Brut Reserve $58.99
Made from 100% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru villages of Les Mesnil Sur Oger, Oger, and Chouilly, the wine spends about three years on the lees after the second fermentation in the bottle. This is a classic Blanc de Blancs, with brilliant orchard fruit, refined toast, and an elegant mousse—a perfect balance of freshness, richness, and length.
