A Best Buy
\"Méthode Cap Classique\" is South African shorthand for the very same time-tested traditional method used to make Champagne. An incredible value, this pink example blends 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay sourced from a 300- year-old farm. Look for tangy red berry and citrus notes, and sip with crispy duck breast or your favourite early-autumn appetizers. Price $ 18.95
