Three and a half glasses
One of the best sparkling wines in this price range. I always get a taste of caramel apple with Roederer. Great value.
This lively champagne helped us usher in the New Year, 2209. It was ebullient and effervescent, very much like the lively company I shared.
A bit overly ebullient in the glass; mousse is good, but perhaps a tad coarse. Good apple-pear nose and attack with excellent, clean acidity on the palate. Bubbles continue for a reasonable period before dissipating. Some sweetness on a medium finish. Overall, quite a good bubbly for the twenty dollar range.
Pale yellow color in the glass. Notes of green apples with just a touch of mineral. Fine mousse. There is an acidic undertone but it is not overly prominent. This wine was dry but not exceptionally so.
Excellent "everyday" sparkling wine. It has the structure and yeasty overtones of a more expensive bottle. Goes well with everything from your cheese course to pizza to meatloaf!

Presents the French mystique with California touches; one of the best bubblies $20 and under that gives the illusion of being above $20.
Crisp and well balanced, creamy mouth feel, long elegant finish with a hint of green apples.
Deep toasty nose, with rich, forward fruit aromas. Complex and well balanced flavors, with soft, flavorful fruit; long, satisfying fruity finish. Great choice for the list.
A delicious California sparkler with rich and toasty aromas up front, and a follow-up that features focused and complex lemon, grapefruit, herb, green apple and pear flavors. it’s bright and clean on the finish, quite refreshing. Drink now through 2002.
Smooth, rich and creamy, with spicy pear, fig, melon and honeysuckle flavors that are fresh and lively, ending with a tasty burst of ripe fruit. Drink now.
Pale straw hue. Tart, vibrant fruity aromas. Crisp citrus and mineral flavors with a medium body and a frothy, finely beaded mouthfeel. Finishes cleanly with a zesty note. Shows finesse and elegance.
Brilliant light golden-heather color. Golden apple scents on the nose with ripe pear and a hint of yeast. Good intensity on the palate with rich pear flavors, creamy texture and good body. The finish has good length with pear and just a touch of lemon at the end. This wine has a clean mouth feel with the fruit and acid well balanced.
