Best Sparkling Wine

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva

Spain $15.99 +158493

“Perennial best buy” does not begin to do this justice. Always overdelivers, with lavish creamy texture and toasty, nutty richness.

Bottega Petalo “Il Vino dell’Amore” Moscato

Italy $17.99 +580993

Could not be more charming; fragrant but not too sweet.

Codorníu Pinot Noir Brut

Spain $19.99 +104034

Great Cava bargain with serious Pinot flavour.

Summerhill Cipes Brut

B.C. $24.95 +314419 (private wine stores)

Otherworldly B.C. fizz.

Lanson Black Label Brut Champagne

France $59.99 +041889

Top value from Champagne’s most improved producer.

Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé

France $63.99 +080184

The definition of finesse.
