Laurent Perrier Non-Vintage Brut
Laurent-Perrier has been making Champagne for over 200 years and is one of the Top 10 Champagne producers in the world by volume. A Grandes Marques house, its peers’ wines can cost you around and above the dreaded $100 mark, but this holiday season you can find Laurent-Perrier’s world-class wines in Ohio starting at $39.99. Trust us, there’s really no champagne out there of this quality at this price.
 
But don’t just take our word for it. Wine Spectator scored Laurent-Perrier’s Brut Non Vintage (Brut NV) 90 points calling it “lovely,” and praising the “candied citrus, ginger, and mineral aromas and flavors [that] integrate well with the lightweight, elegant frame."
 
Treat yourself to great champagne at an unbelievable price of $39.99.
Laurent Perrier Non-Vintage Brut
Pascual Toso is an Argentine winery of great repute. Pascual Toso immigrated from Italy to Argentina in the 1890 and established what is now one of Argentina’s most respected properties. With the help of legendary winemaker, Paul Hobbs, Toso wines have moved into the elite category.
 
The Brut is bright green and yellow in color, the yeast balances with the essential characteristics of Chardonnay. On the palate, it is soft, fresh and easy to drink. With time, the Pascual Toso Sparkling Brut evolves and gains complexity in its bottle. 100% Chardonnay. Amazing Value.

Naveran Brut Cava DO, Penedes
Founded in 1985 by Swiss-born Michel Gilleron Parellada, the Caves Naveran winery owns 272 acres in the Spanish reion Penedes, best known for sparkling wine.  Despite the fact that Cava is Spain’s largest volume wine export to the U.S., Cavas are made utilizing the same methods used in Champagne and have remained Spain’s best-kept secret for quality and value in wine. Naveran Vintage Cava has expressive and zesty floral, toasted bread and citrus aromas. Tangy, suave, light and clean citrus and stone fruit flavors on the palate have a fresh and crisp character. It's easy to mistake this for great champagne.
