Willm Cremant d’Alsace Cuvée Leon IX, $16

What a wonderful value in a sparkling wine! Crémant d’Alsace doesn’t
give the complexity or richness of Champagne (or the sticker shock, of
course), but this example from Willm is top-notch, with great balance
and a core of red fruit flavors that yield to a clean, refreshing
finish. The package is attractive, too, which means this wine looks and
tastes more expensive than it is.
