Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut
This Catalan sparkling wine has been my standard holiday bubbly for some time. It does not vary over the years, is consistently pleasing, with sour apple and nutty flavors and conveys the impression of extreme freshness. It doesn't come up to a superior Champagne, but then it costs about a quarter as much. $9.99.
