Would love for this producer to be one of my house bubbles. Would pair well with the hollandaise in eggs Benedict. — 3 days ago

Chemin de Reims Extra Brut Champagne Blanc de Blancs

Wowza, great wine. On the nose and palate, lots of fruit to go with that French country loaf. Very fine and luxurious bubbles, but drink in small pours as it flattens out quickly in the glass. — an hour ago

Comtes de Champagne Brut Champagne Blend Rosé 2004

Just a few pics of the wines from last night’s monthly 4th Friday. Too many bottles to try!

There is A LOT to like here right now. Delicate aromatics of rose petal, strawberry cream and cherry tart but it turns more powerful and rich on the palate. Strawberry shortbread, red fruit skin, chalky limestone and a finish that turns slightly herbal. The structure here shows that this will be open for business for quite a while.

First time tasting a Comtes Champers Rose. This wine was incredibly balanced from a fruit perspective. Sweeter strawberry compote up front. Nose and entry with some herbal quality about it. Bubbles medium sized here with augmented presentation towards the finish which IMO kind of threw the structure of this one off a bit. Gonna last another 15 years easily.

Anne-Marie’s birthday with her besty, Magnolia. Having a great time in Aruba. We are very partial to Ruinart with any label. This one is honied, toasty and fresh. Soft mousse, reminding me of the Krug that Shawn pulled last week. Loving life with my wifey - we are blessed 😍

Les Monts Fournois Coteaux Champenois Ludes 1er Cru Blanc White Blend 2013

A very rare still Chardonnay from Champagne rock star Bereche and it tastes like...well, flat Champagne, in the best way possible. Raging, mouth puckering acid, creamy and long, candied citrus, baked orchard fruit, pastry crust, marzipan, chalky minerality for days. Acid freaks: come ride the lightning, others need not apply — a day ago

Un Jour de 1911 Brut Champagne Blend

The 'Cuvée 1911' is an absolutely thrilling bottle of Champagne from winemaker Jean-François Clouet. Composed of 100% Pinot Noir, which sourced from Clouet’s ten best lieux-dits in the Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay. This Cuvée is a blend of vintages, primarialy consisting of 2008, with ’07, ’09, ’10 finishing the blend. It spent more than 6 years aging on its lees before its disgorgement in November, 2017. The wine itself is simply remarkable, as it is beautifully intense on the nose, with aromatics of Pazazz apple, toast, florals and minerals all instantly drawing you in. Even more captivating is its combination of weight, tension and gorgeous textural compisition. Wonderful flavors of orchard fruits and citrus continue to impress as they come together with a beautiful salinity character which persists through the pretty finish. An absolutely striking Champagne, which will continue to evolve gracefully for many years. — 19 days ago
