Buena Vista La Victoire Brut Champagne (regularly $54.99, sale $24.99)

This is as good a deal as you're going to see on Champagne. Period. I've never seen Champagne priced where I can sell it for 25 dollars, especially during the holiday season. Even better is that the quality is top notch. It's heavy on Pinot Noir just like my personal (and James Bond's as well) favorite Champagne house, Bollinger. If you love your Champagne full and rich, you're going to love the La Victoire.

Made up of 70% Pinot Noir, from Premier Cru vineyards from the Montagne de Reims, and 30% Chardonnay, mostly from Grand Cru Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly. By law in Champagne, aging is 15 months minimum for non-vintage wines. The La Victoire was aged more than 3 years, a critical factor in making great Champagne.

This champagne opens with elegant and complex aromas of citrus fruit followed by rich honey and brioche notes. A crisp and intense palate offers flavors of white stone fruits, peaches and pears. The wine's impressive mouthfeel is full and rich but well balanced, leaving delightful freshness on the palate. Don't miss out on this exceptional Champagne at a remarkable price!

It was already a great value wine at its regular price, but taking another $3 off makes it an [...]
