Soft bubbles; peaches and apricots make this a great match with a turkey sandwich.

Floral, muscat and fruit cocktail aromas become rich and complex on the palate, showing a touch of sweetness and finishing with a clean, fresh aftertaste. Drink now.

Not really dry but off-dry, this bubbly is rich, with honeyed flavors of raspberries, cherries, pineapples, apples and brioche. A pleasant sipper.

Whatever “extra-dry riche” means, this is a slightly sweet brut-style wine, with flavors of peach, raspberry and citrus. The bubbles are on the big size, but on the whole it’s a pleasant wine.

Sweet and spicy, with a Muscat edge, yet enough acidity to keep it from being cloying. Shows off creamy black cherry and wild berry fruit. A delightful dessert-style wine. Drink now.

It’s called extra dry, but it’s actually kind of sweet. Not too much, just enough to give a rich, honeyed edge to the strawberry, peach, nectarine and toast flavors.

Spice, sweet peach and baked cherry flavors have good concentrations, with a slightly earthy note. Drink now.

If you like your bubbly a little sweet, this is for you. The peach, vanilla, lime, smoke and raspberry flavors are offset by good acidity. Finishes a bit rough.
