Bubblies that will fizz up any festivity

The LCBO's best sparkling wines
Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Brut Rosé

$99.95 | Champagne, France | 93 Points One of the world’s best pink bubblies pours deep salmon pink. It has a rich, exotic nose of strawberry-rhubarb jam, orange peel and toasty spice. It is medium weight, crisp and so well balanced with perfect acidity and minerality. Outstanding depth. Vintages 158550

Louis Roederer Brut Premier

$74.95 | Champagne, France | 93 Points This is a classic mature lemon-gold champagne with intense aromas of hazelnut, baked bread, dried apple and honey-marzipan. It has power and intensity—very dry with firm mineral acidity. Solid and so focused. Vintages 268771

Pol Roger Brut Réserve

$67.90 | Champagne, France | 92 Points This is a softer, richer style of champagne with rich fruit and toasty, brûlée and nutty notes. It is somehow more voluminous than many champagnes, with ample finesse and riveting acidity. Excellent length. LCBO 217158

Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne

$62.35 | Champagne, France | 91 Points This a more restrained, elegant yet complete style. Expect reserved, complex nutty, dried apple fruit and garlicky aromas. It’s medium weight with precise acidity and minerality set within a creamy texture. The length is excellent. LCBO 365312

Tarlant Brut Réserve

$45.25 | Champagne, France | 91 Points This mid-weight, quite-fine bubbly has lifted and complex aromas of baked apple, toast, hazelnut, brioche and earthiness. It’s dry and tart-edged with impressive presence and excellent length. Quite lemony with nutty bitterness on the finish. LCBO 325167

Henry of Pelham Cuvée Catharine Rosé Brut

$32.95 | Niagara Peninsula | 90 Points This deep-pink, traditional-method pinot noir–based rosé was aged 30 months. It shows a fairly rich nose of raspberry Danish, some nuttiness and toast.

The LCBO's best sparkling wines
Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Réserve

$49.95 | Champagne, France | 90 Points This wine spent three years aging on its lees, thus showing lemon-gold colour, a generous nose of pear and apple, and with mild vanilla, earthy and yeasty notes. It’s medium-bodied with creamy mousse, a touch of sweetness and very good flavour depth. LCBO 537605 

The LCBO's best sparkling wines
Trius Brut

$29.95 | Niagara Peninsula | 90 Points This Niagara traditional-method sparkler has an easygoing ambiance with typical apple, creamy, lemony and toasty flavours. A bit fuller and fruitier than many others, it’s well balanced and amiable with very good length. LCBO 284539

Paul Delane Crémant De Bourgogne Réserve

$20.65 | Burgundy, France | 89 Points Crémant de Bourgogne is a traditionally made bubbly based on pinot noir and chardonnay, but this edition also includes aligoté and gamay.
