Champagne for the Holidays and Beyond!
While there are lots of fine sparkling wines around, there is something special about true Champagne from France. The laws governing how the wines are made are strict and more specific than any other bubbles on the planet. That is what makes Champagne truly special.
We have about 60 different bubblies from Champagne to sparkling wines from around the world, at prices starting under $10!
We have some very good deals on Champagne this Holiday season so it is a good time to stock up while these deals last. Here are some of our favorite producers to fill the glass (and the cellar) with :
Drappier Brut Carte d’Or : regular $46/ sale $34.95*
At our recent Champagne tasting we faced this wine off against Veuve Cliquot and the majority of tasters thought it was as good or better Than Veuve and it is $20 less!! (91 points Wine Spectator)
Louis Roederer Brut Premier : regular $56 / sale $44.95*
From the iconic house that makes Cristal, this Brut Premier is a serious classic Champagne with a lot of focus and power. (92 points Wine Spectator)
Domain Aubry Brut 1er cru : regular $45 / sale $34.95*
Always a sellout this is the wine for everybody. Great creamy mouthfeel and a clean finish from a true grower/producer. All estate fruit from 1er cru vineyards (92 points Wine Spectator)
Jean Vesselle Reserve Brut : regular $44 / sale $34.95*
Made with a high percentage of Pinot Noir, this wine has a lot of weight and power plus a very bright finish. A good choice with richer seafood appetizers. Think crab cakes, smoked salmon or caviar (92 points Stephen Tanzer)
Zoemie De Sousa Brut Classique : regular $45 / sale $34.95*
A true geek Champagne made from all organic and biodynamic fruit. Third generation grower who now uses a horse drawn plow in the vineyard. Very small production and very low dosage make this one of the driest wines with bubbles around. Definitely a food wine ( no available reviews but we loved this wine at our Champagne tasting on 12/10/16)
