Kirkland Signature Prosecco Rosé

This new addition to the Kirkland wine family started appearing in stores a couple weeks back, and finally hit my store in the Atlanta area.  It was also featured in the latest issue of the Costco Connection magazine. A Prosecco Rosé almost seems like a no brainer given the wine community’s current love for bubbly …

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Yellow Label

As we’ve been drinking more Champagne, I’ve been wanting to buy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to see how it stacks up. I’ve had a few bottles over the years and have always enjoyed them. This Champagne is widely available and almost always in stock, at least in the stores around the Atlanta area. We …

2018 Gerard Bertrand An 825 Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

I almost passed this bottle up thinking it was the Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Cuvee that we reviewed last year, and really enjoyed. The similarities are uncanny: the price, the label, the varietal blend, the origin (both Limoux Brut Rosé); the ABV, but different vintages, 2017 vs 2018. But then I noticed this one was …

Langlois Chateau Cremant de Loire Brut

We drink a fair amount of bubbly wine at our house.  It just goes with anything, any meal, anybody.  Long time readers know that we love the Kirkland Champagne for $19.99.  That’s real French Champagne at an almost unheard of price. We were excited to see another French bubbly hit our Costco stores, this time …

Side by Side Tasting of the Kirkland Champagne – New Bottle vs Old Bottle

There’s been a bit of a debate going on among readers about the new bottle design for the Kirkland Champagne. The new bottle is shorter and wider (pictured on the right above), and some people have found it to taste differently than the original one. So I thought it would be fun to go side …

NV Casa Farvive Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG

I love the shape of this bottle. It’s short and fat and looks like the top-half of a magnum. Perhaps not the best fit to store on a wine rack, but this type of wine can be stored upright for years without compromise. I don’t personally recommend storing this wine for years, however. I usually …
