Tasting Notes

It's so rare that we get our hands on a Demi-Sec styled Champagne that we love. Demi-Sec Champagnes have a distinct sweetness to them but in this case, it's just a dusting of powdered sugar alongside yellow plums and flowers. The acidity is on point, balanced yet giving a luscious tangy finish. Demi-Sec Champagne is ideal with anything from foie gras to a cheese plate. This is from a superb family estate in the Marne Valley, Liébart-Régnier.

Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. 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...
