Biutiful Brut Cava
*** (Exceptional) GREAT VALUE

Penedes, Spain, $14
This cava is a bit more champagne-like than most, thanks to the 20 percent of the blend being chardonnay. The chardonnay lends body and richness, along with ripe fruit notes and a bit of sweetness to match the red-fruit flavors of currant and raspberry. This is delightful bubbly, and easy to find. Alcohol by volume: 11.5 percent.
