Castillo Perelada Brut Reserva Cava (NV)
Good efforvescence, but not overly bubbly with a pale straw color. The nose reminded me of fresh baked bread and toasted hazelnuts (which could be why my wife liked it so much). On the palette, it was not as dry as many Brut champagnes, with a nutty, kettle popcorn taste. At less than $12 a bottle it was very drinkable and pleasant. We had no problem finishing the entire bottle.
