Tasting Notes

A pretty Champagne that is ideal for all occasions. Fine bubbles convey the lively blend of mostly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir across a fuller palate. Herbal notes pervade, alongside seashell minerals. A nice match for salmon, crab sashimi, and dainty endive and cheese appetizers.

Staff Pick Notes

There's something about this Champagne that is hard to describe.

In spite of what the bureaucrats might think, this is top-notch Champagne with a savory, fresh flavor that will make any Champagne fan gush.

These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
