57 reviews of sparkling wine over the years, many of which feature multiple bottles per review. Short advice: if you have the cash, go with vintage or grower's Champagne. If you're going to be celebrating with wine geeks on a budget, go with the various French Crémants like Alsace, Limoux, Bourgogne... For everyone else, hit the Cava and Prosecco and have a great time. Drive safe and be careful with the corks.
In the meantime, I'm enjoying oysters and Sancerre. See you on the flip side.
