Staff Pick Notes

A half-bottle from one of Bouzy's top grower producers? Yes, please. I fell hard for this bubbly back when we carried the 750 ml, but I'll take it no matter what the format. Bouzy, a grand cru village in the Montagne de Reims, is known for some of the best pinot noir in Champagne and there's a hefty dose of it here (90%). Add minimal dosage and no malo and your palate will never have felt more alive. Winemaking in the family dates back to 1599 and is now in the hands of Herbert's son Henri. The Grand Cru brut is a revelation. It takes you on a ride, constantly surprising at every turn. Toasty aromas greet you up front and linger on the palate, followed by almonds and orchard fruits, which segue into a snappy citrusy finish.There's richness and zip, power and grace, muscle and finesse. All in this unassuming little bottle? Yes.

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...
