Staff Pick Notes

Oeil de perdrix translates to "eye of the patridge" and refers to pale rose color of this beautiful wine. An absolute gem of a Crémant de Bourgogne with delicate raspberry and grapefruit flavors. Dry and mineral-driven with a low dosage that makes every glass more enjoyable than the last. Chollet is a very small producer that is not to be passed by.
