Mi Cava es Tu Cava

Marques de Gelida, Cava Brut 2000 ($12) -- Sant Sadurni D'Anoia, Spain; imported by Cutting Edge Selections, Cincinnati; a very refreshing, slightly bubbly, lower alcohol (11.5%) alternative to Pinot Grigio/Gris or other light whites; light nose, clean soft taste and the bubbles really take a backseat here unlike a typical low-end Sparkler. This is a white wine first, a Sparkler second. You don't need a "special occassion" to pull this out. Just serve instead of white wine at a dinner or Sunday brunch, no questions asked. Maybe, it will become a special occassion. Muy Bueno!
