Top 10 Mother's Day Wines

SPARKLING

Mumm Napa 2008 Blanc de Blancs
Napa Valley, California

Because there are only three grape varieties allowed in Champagne, a blanc de blancs from that region is always made entirely from Chardonnay. The 2008 Blanc de Blancs from Mumm Napa, however, is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, which adds notes of peach, apricot and spice. It makes for an excellent aperitif, but would also go well with fresh oysters or ceviche.

Rating: 14/20
Price:
$30
