The day old brioche I want to eat before a chance to become French toast in a hungover frenzy. Not the greatest, but it's inviting and comforting when I need it to be.

Clean, crisp, and balanced. Maybe went down too easy.

Excellent sparkling for the price. A go to for burgers at this price. Cuts through the salt and grease perfectly with its refreshing aromatic profile. Slight sweetness but nowhere near off putting. Sure to make any sparkling fan feel satisfied.

Am I a monster if I make mimosas out of a sparkling wine without a twist off cork? This is actually quite good by itself, but makes a pretty damn good mimosa.

APPLE. Dry. Light & Clean.

A favorite at this price point. Why isn't everything Cava?

Not much of a fan of too many sparklings but Freixenet has a great one that is not too sweet and easy to enjoy more than just one glass.
