Champagne for Our Real Friends

Grande Marque or Grower-Producer? Full-bodied or light and bone-dry? Rosé? Vintage? Half-bottle or magnum? We just can’t get enough of Champagne these days, but how to decide between the plethora of options on the market? This time of year, bubbles are especially en vogue, but we’re big believers in drinking Champagne throughout your meal--and throughout the year--and for good reason: the best Champagnes are able to stand up to myriad cuisines, from roasts to stews to ceviche to oysters to everything in between. These bright, clean wines, bolstered by their toastiness and fine beading, are lengthy and unctuous enough to support whatever food you throw at them, without weighing down your palate. “Champagne for my real friends,” Francis Bacon famously wrote, “real pain for my sham friends.” A harsh assessment, perhaps, but we appreciate his dedication to those fine, beaded bubbles. We’ve curated the best for you-the real deal for you, real friends-ranging from pink to golden-hued, from collectible and aged to Grande Marque and perfect for gift-giving. Take a bottle home for yourself and watch it progress through dinner, grab a bottle for the cellar, and buy one for a friend or loved one. These bottles are versatile, special, and charming.

R.H. Coutier, Brut Rosé - NV

Rosé | France, Champagne, Ambonnay | (750 )mL
The Coutier family has been growing grapes in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay since the 1680s. This rosé is made with a tad more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir; the Pinot was still, hence the darker color. The Chardonnay brings a nice "lift" and floral quality to this Champagne that is aged on the cork rather than with a crown cap.
