I am a firm believer that bubbles should not only be saved for celebrations. Sometimes you celebrate a milestone, and sometimes you celebrate the fact you folded the laundry that's been in the dryer for two days... Either way, pop that cork! This is an elegant Champagne alternative. Alternative, because Champagne is only made in that region of France and this one comes from Luxembourg. You know it is made in the same method as Champagne because the label says "Methode Traditionnelle" and they are using 100% Pinot Noir grapes. It has a wonderful foaming mousse, zero sweetness, flavors of crisp red berries and pink grapefruit. It is the perfect birthday sparkling, or for me, Tuesday night bubble!
