Sparkling Wine Reviews
Sparkling Wines Taste.About the only performance criterion for cheap sparkling wine is the way it tastes, and sparkling wine reviews are generally laudatory about our picks for best cheap champagnes.
According to the sparkling wine reviews we read, experts and consumers tend to favor products that best imitate the qualities of real Champagne. Among the imitators, few rank higher in taste and value for the dollar than some of the Spanish cava sparkling wines.
Another champagne substitute, Roederer Estate Brut NV, is highly recommended in an expert sparkling wine review in The New York Times. This sparkling wine hails from a cuvee made of oak-aged wines of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes that convey overtones of caramel and cherry. Sparkling wine reviews on Wine.com cite comments from experts like Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator, which note the cinnamon hues and fresh apple and pear flavors; they also say this is a sparkler that delivers value well above its selling price. Consumers' sparkling wine reviews commend the crisp clean taste, surprisingly full body, and easy pairing with foods or stand-alone drink.
Another much appreciated sparkling wine is the Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut NV, which has garnered a number of awards in local wine-tasting competitions as well as an international business class airline competition. Sparkling wine reviews on Snooth.com say this champagne substitute doesn't disappoint, is lively and vibrant, and displays fruity notes with a slight acidic edge.
By contrast, the super-cheap Korbel Brut is described as rough, sour, and short on real taste. Remember, though, there's no substitute for personal preference. Be guided by the sparkling wines reviews but in the end, trust your own palate. Within the budget you've set for yourself, you will certainly find a cheap sparkling wine that satisfies.
Don't Bother Cheap Champagne
Korbel Brut is readily available and often put forward as a cheap option in the sparkling wine category. Experts say the bubbles are rough and consumers complain of a tart, short finish and a sour, plastic-like aftertaste although some consider it an option for champagne cocktails.Read more »
