Good value for a sparkler. Lemon and apple tones. Very dry and drinkable. A great pairing with oysters.

Light floral nose. Delicate yeast, buscuit and dried petals. Tart dry finish of gooseberries and quince. Very good value. Worked well as a Kir Royale style cocktail with Domaine de Canton's ginger liquor

Good for the dollars... Dry, clean, and easy to drink. Plus Scharffenberger is fun to say. No? Buy this instead of Korbel.

Very active, pinpoint bubbles; toast and wood dominate the nose; flavors of toast, butter and fresh apples; citrus notes on a long, balanced close; clean; attractive value.

Here’s a polished, elegant wine, very dry, with delicate flavors of citrus rind, bread dough and yeast, toast and vanilla. It has a lightness and charm on the palate that make it irresistible.

A delicious Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend from coolly grown Mendocino grapes that is equal parts golden apple and honey in both aroma and flavor. Creamy from full malolactic fermentation, this sparkler is full-bodied and plenty fruity with a caramel, vanilla tone on the finish. Will pair well with creamy, full-bodied foods.

Never objectionable… Scharffenberger’s Brut is lean at the center with moderate richness, derived from time on the yeasts pulling it back into focus. Mouth-filling with its bubbles but slightly hard in feel and acidy at the finish, this wine needs a service with tangy shellfish dishes to show at its best.

A delightfully racy sparkler, with tart apple and floral anise aromas leading to zesty lime and lemon flavors, presenting accents of cinnamon and spicy ginger. Drink now.

Subtlety more than potency is the message here, and wine’s lean, crisp-edged styling places it squarely amongst those wines that will show best on their own or with the lightest foods. Quiet, but mildly creamy in scent, the wine shows a foamy mousse with plenty of tiny bubbles that sustain nicely, and its crisp, relatively dry flavors carry under- played notes of minerals and green apples that linger in a tart, palate-cleansing finish.

…has a perfume of citrus and vanilla, nuanced with peach and pear. The grapefruit, green apple and peach flavors are very clean, fresh and flavorful.
