Consumer Reports Does Champagne


The Poindexters at Consumer Reports have taken their scientific method to the world of bubbly. In this quickie writeup, they recommend three California sparklers, two French champagnes, and one Spanish cava for your holiday drinking. Hard to argue with their picks, all of which are below $45 and most of which hit $20 or less.

The big six winners:

Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige
Scharffenberger Brut Mendocino
Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava
Piper-Heidsieck Brut
Taittinger La Française Brut

Gotta say I love Segura Viudas, especially for 10 bucks!
