Narsai Ranks These In Order of Preference:

Segura Viudas Sparkling Spanish wines
Segura Viudas Sparkling Spanish wines (

Segura Viudas ARIA Estate Brut, $14
This one comes in a very exotic bottle like an expensive champagne. It has a nice, yeasty aroma and nice finish on the palate.

Freixenet Cordon Negro, $12
This has a nice fruit and nice finish. It's a good everyday bubbly.

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, $10
This one is very fruity with a short, simple finish. Sometimes Bevmo has it on sale for $6. Really hard to believe a wine this good could be sold at such a low price.

Segura Viudas Brut Rose, $10
This is kind of rich and heavy on the palate. Definitely a food wine.
