There is no style of wine that has been involved in more celebrations throughout the world than Sparkling Wine. Champagne and other types of Sparkling wine are incredibly nuanced. Good bubbly is focused, but also has a myriad of peripheral aromas, flavors and textural notes. The prestige cuvees and some of the small batch “Grower” bubbles are some of the most complex wines available. Combine this with an inherent ability to pair with a vast range of foods and we would argue it can be the perfect wine.
The Sparkling Wine selection at Molly’s Spirits is unparalleled in the state of Colorado. There is a huge range out there and we’re proud to say that we’ve got it covered at Molly’s. Whether you’re looking for sweet and frothy or focused and razor sharp; we have something for you.

Mumm, Nicolas Feuillate, Pol Roger and Henriot to mention a few. The important Champagne Négociant houses are well represented.
The Champagnes that can be most interesting are the Récoltant manipulant or “Grower Champagnes”.
Terry Theise, an important wine importer, probably summarizes this small, but dynamic portion of the market like this:
“Why Drink Grower Champagne?
You should drink grower Champagne if you’ve forgotten that Champagne is WINE.
You should drink “farmer-fizz” if you’d rather buy Champagne from a farmer than a factory.
You should drink it if you’d rather have a wine expressive of vineyard, and the grower’s own connection to vineyard, than a wine “formed” by a marketing swami who’s studied to the nth-degree what you can be persuaded to “consume.” Do you really want to be reduced to a mere “consumer” when you can drink Champagne like a whole human being?
You should drink grower-Champagne if the individually distinctive flavors of terroir-driven wines matter more than the lowest-common denominator pap served up by the mega conglomerates in the “luxury goods” business.
You should drink it because it’s honest REAL wine grown and made by a vintner—by a FAMILY just like yours—by a “him,” not by an “it.” You should drink it because it’s better to buy wine from a person than from a company.
You should drink it because its price is honestly based on what it costs to produce, not manipulated to account for massive PR and ad budgets, or to hold on to market-share.
You should drink grower-Champagne because, like all hand-crafted estate-bottled wines, it is not a mere Thing but is indeed a BEING, expressive of where it grew and who raised it. In drinking it you help protect DIVERSITY, and diversity leads to VITALITY. And if you’d rather eat a local field-ripened summer tomato rapturous with sweetness instead of some January tomato you buy at the supermarket hard as a stone and tasting of nothing, then you should be drinking farmer-fizz!” -Terry Theise
From France, in addition to Champagne, we feature a selection of Blanquette de Limoux, Cremant de Loire, Cremant de Bourgogne, and a handful of other delightful sparklers.
France has the richest history in the sparkling category and certainly delivers some of the very highest quality. However, they have not cornered the market on delicious, fizzy fermented grape juice. We have a vast selection of Prosecco and Franciacorta from Italy. Graham Beck, Cap Classique Brut & Brut Rose from South Africa represents one of the biggest bangs for your buck in high quality, but reasonably priced bubbly. Value and quality abound in our vast selection of Spanish Cava. And of course, we round out the selection with Sparkling Riesling and Pinot Noir from Germany, Sparkling Malbec from Argentina, Sparkling Shiraz from Australia, Sparkling Moschofilero from Greece and Sparkling Moscato from various parts of the world.
