Item # 18175 750mL

This is exactly what bubbly should be: fun, friendly, and festive enough for a special occasion. An exceptionally tasty dry sparkler, the Delacroix bottling will please just about any palate; enjoy it as an apéritif or marvel at how it sets off your most luxurious lobster dish. Many of our customers are buying this wine by the case, and wisely so: we think everyone should have a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge at all times, ready to be popped whenever the situation calls for it. Which turns out to be quite often.

Staff Pick Notes

You're looking at this and wondering, "Can an $8 bottle of French bubbly really be any good?" Yes. The Delacroix is awesome. Crisp and dry and fun, this French sparkler is well balanced and great by the case at parties. The Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc provides a great dry yellow apple base, with great acidity and a smooth mouthfeel. This guy is also great in all of your Champagne cocktails. It's versatile, and the perfect price for French 75s, mimosas, or Lillet apéritifs. Top with a cordial like crème de framboise for a great before-dinner drink. Did I mention you can open it with a sword?

These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly adopted winemaking technologies have helped a dedicated group of producers to bring the country's dry...
