LAMBERT de SEYSSEL “Petit Royal” Brut NV

(Savoie, France) $19

When you’re in the mood to drink Champagne, but your wallet is not in the mood to be quite so obliging, this is your wine. The sparklers from the Savoie (sav-WA) region in the French Alps are not yet well known, but they are super lively, fresh, bone-dry, and very brisk in the manner of a good Champagne. Importantly, like the Champagne region, the Savoie has a cold climate and the soils are laced with limestone. This tasty sparkler is a blend of the indigenous grapes molette and altesse from vineyards 10 to 25 years old. A must-try, and a steal to boot. (12% abv)
