    Winemaker's Notes:

    This fine Spanish sparkling wine is made using the Traditional Method, in which the secondary fermentation producing a sparkling wine's bubbles occurs in the bottle. Its fresh, toasty nose, beautiful citrus, green apple and mineral flavors, supple, lively mouth-feel, and clean, crisp finish make it the ultimate celebratory wine. Enjoy it on its own and with caviar, sushi, seafood, fried foods and Asian dishes

    Varietal Blend: 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo

    Critical Acclaim:

    A perennial favorite, this offers clean apple flavors at an unusually affordable price for such a completely dry style. It's a great party pour, or an aperitif to sip with raw clams.

    Bright yellow. Aromas of orange, pineapple and pear, plus a hint of musky herbs. Juicy and very fruity, with crisp acidity and a sharp element of orange zest adding a bitter touch. Finishes clean and brisk, with modest persistence and an echo of candied citrus fruits. This is an incredible value in sparkling wine.

    Bought this wine for serving after holiday dinner. Tasted it and was highly impressed. Have since purchased a case each week for hostess and holiday gift giving. Excellent wine which easily rivals Chandon White Star at 1/4 the price. I certainly expect a tremendous increase in the price and soon!

    I purchased a bottle of the Brut Sparkling wine and was very disappointed. The smell of the wine was very good and the first taste was good, but subsequent sips gave me the taste of "motor oil". I was very disappointed. Needless to say I threw out the bottle. I have had other inexpensive sparkling wines and never had that taste before. The Monmousseau is very good and in that price range. Has anyone else had this taste sensation?

    I try to avoid cheap sparkling wine, as it usually has either a strange "stale candy" taste, or a strange aftertaste. But Cristalino is unbelievable. Prosecco-like and delicious. Highly recommended. The rose is great, too.

    There is a reason this wine has won "Best value in America" for threeyears running. It is very smooth and drinkable, with a pleasant finish. If you need a lot of bubbly for a special occasion, you cannot go wrong with a few cases of this wine. Personally, I prefer the regular to the rose, but I know many people who enjoy the latter.

    ...and 97% of the populus would not be able to do more than guess which was which in a blind taste test! Of course, "gansta rappers" with gold chains on MTV don't allude to it's status of having enough "benjamins" to waste on it so... yeah. What can one say except; it IS dry, it does NOT go well with your thanksgiving meal (unless you don't want to taste the wine much at all), and Mimosa's, while yummy, do not constitute "tasting" this terrific sparkler. It is simply an AMAZING value, and THEE answer to saving a bundle on your wedding reception (or any gala event), while still serving a GREAT sparkling wine. Personally I prefer Krug to Cristal anyday for a $250 Champagne (that someone else is paying for), Perrier Jouët NV (if I'm OKay with $30 for the impression made with a "true" Champagne) and the Segura Viudas Heredad Cava NV (also from Espain) for a best value (@$15) but at $5.99 (Cost Plus World Market)! WoW! How can they do it!? Gracias España!

    I have purchased this wine several times and it is an inexpensive, very dry sparkling wine that will go with any number of dishes or stand alone. Great to keep on hand for any occasion.

    I'd classify this as a good value wine. This is a good choice for someone who wants to serve a large quantity of champagne-style wine without spending a fotune on their friends. It's not too sweet like other inexpensives sparklers.

    For the price, this is the best sparkling wine that I have ever tried. Crisp with a clean palate.
