By KAILEN SKEWIS
Best Overall
The Etienne Oudart Blanc de Noirs Champagne is a high-quality bottle at a reasonable price, approximately $40 at Vivino. One customer on Vivino says this wine has “red fruit flavors ... apricot, tangerine, and nuts too.”
Best Affordable Wine
The Rivata Casa Rossa, only $9 a bottle, continues to receive positive reviews. One customer from Total Wine & More writes “I would recommend this to anyone! I already want to buy more, it is such a sweet beautiful red wine.”
Best Luxury Sparkling Wine
Bollinger's La Grande Année 2014 Champagne is among the best bottles you can splurge on as it sells for approximately $150. It’s recommended this wine be paired with gourmet food as it features 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay.
Best Cava
Cavas are best described as a not-sweet sparkling wine with similarities to non-vintage Champagne. Bohigas Brut Reserva Cava is refreshing and understated, while also being of good quality and is among the best Cavas you can purchase at a reasonable price.
Best Blanc De Blancs
The Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Brut comes from Jack and Jamie Davies, who gave new life to the historic Schramsberg property where they created their wines in California. This bottle is balanced with tart flavors and the scent of fruity spring flowers.
