A Note from Sergio

You can never go wrong with a bottle of good Champagne. Champagne's beauty, its individuality, its ability to transmit terroir and vintage, and its ways with food--especially difficult dishes--make it unique. Champagne makes your conversation sparkle, your dishes taste delicious, and your night enchanting, but more than that, opening a serious bottle of Champagne is like conjuring magic. The one wine that means sophistication and romance, Champagne sets a beautiful mood for everyone in your party, even if that party is just you and the person you love.

I love wines that touch my mouth, my gut and my imagination--and that's as true for Champagne as it is for Barolo, Brunello, or Burgundy. Today, I'm delighted to present fourteen wines that celebrate my love--and maybe your love too! You'll find fourteen different Champagnes in today's offer, some by small, artisanal "grower" Champagne houses, and some by flashy marquee houses. All of these Champagnes are glorious, and all of them come with special pricing. Just never forget: the best thing to do with love--or Champagne--is to share it!

Enjoy!

Roger Coulon Brut Reserve de l'Hommee 1er Cru NV 750ml
Roger Coulon Brut Reserve de l'Hommee 1er Cru NV 750ml
Price: $52.99

Bright cherries and berries, buttered brioche, baking spices, and vanilla cavort in the nose of Roger Coulon’s fine Brut Réserve de l'Hommée; the wine’s precise palate echoes these notes, adding citrus and orchard fruits, along with a penetrating minerality. Perfect, fine perlage transmits texture and a bright skein of acidity propels this elegant Champagne as it builds to a balanced, complex, and mineral-laden finish. This wine, a blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay that derives from the estate’s old-vine vineyards in Vrigny and Pargny, gets its name from the traditional term for the vineyard work a person could do in a single day. Tradition dictates the creation of this wine; it ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for at least five years before disgorgement. more info

This non-vintage Champagne is a stunner that over-delivers on its modest pricing!

A blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier that derives from Bollinger’s vineyards, most classified grand or premier cru, one third of the grapes grapes ferment in used oak, and the wine ages for 30 to 36 months on the lees; the final non-vintage blend is at least half reserve wines that are aged in magnum, and the wine averages seven to eight years upon release. more info

Price: $69.99

Intense, focused and mineral-laden, Lenoble’s Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Chouilly “Mag 14” explodes from the glass in a profusion of green orchard fruits, lush stone fruits, toasted hazelnuts, ginger and spices. A creamy perlage fills the mouth, while vivid acidity and subtle minerality power this elegant, extremely pretty Champagne to a sustained finish--enjoyable now, this wine will age nicely over the medium term. This mono-varietal Chardonnay Champagne derives from the estate’s grand cru vineyards in Chouilly; composed of 40% reserve wine, most aged in magnum under cork, and 60% 2014 base wine; after blending, this Champagne aged on the lees in the winery’s ancient chalk caves for three years before disgorgement. more info

Billecart-Salmon Vintage Extra Brut 2007 750ml
Price: $96.99

Taut, racy, and seductive, this ’07 Extra Brut Champagne bursts from the glass with an explosion of juicy apples and ripe berries with lemon tart, brioche, warm earth, flint, praline, and cream in the background. This Champagne holds its rich fruits in a tight acidic grip, while elegant minerals offer a piercing complement to its persistent mousse--it’s a classic Extra Brut Champagne, and it’s gorgeous! A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay with a low dosage, a percentage of the grapes vinify in oak casks with the rest in steel, and the wine spends about ten years on its lees to impart flavor and texture. more info
Andre Clouet Champagne Cuvee 1911 NV
Andre Clouet Champagne Cuvee 1911 NV 750ml
Price: $99.99

Bursting with tropical and citrus fruits, toasted brioche, crushed roses, a kiss of spice and a sophisticated core of saline minerality, this Champagne marries power with finesse thanks to its mousse-like texture that’s backed with bracing acidity. This is a serious Champagne that begs to be sipped from a Burgundy glass, yet it’s so food-friendly that you can enjoy it from the meal’s beginning to its end. Cuvée 1911 respects an old Champagne tradition of blending multiple vintages that few houses practice these days; for this Champagne, Clouet blends multiple vintages; its current release uses a blend of half 2008 vintage with the remainder a solera blend of old reserve wines. Cuvée 1911 commemorates the year riots broke out in the Champagne region as the local farmers rebelled against the larger houses, as well as the number of bottles André Clouet makes each bottling. This mono-varietal Pinot Noir Champagne is a blend of the estate’s best reserve wines dating from 2001; the wine ages sur lie in bottle for about seven years before it receives a low 6-grams per liter dosage. more info

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve NV 1.5L
Price: $129.00

Sunny stone fruits, sappy orchard fruits, and vibrant lemon zest dance against a backdrop of smoky minerals, crushed flower petals, buttered brioche, almond paste and exotic spices in this caressing, energetic Champagne Brut Réserve. Fine, elegant perlage tickles the cheeks as this wine gathers power, moving from succulent richness to chalky energy. This balanced Champagne marries its open-knit generosity with almost kinetic energy, offering a drinking experience that’s food-friendly and expansive. A blend of mostly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with 20% Pinot Meunier, this Champagne derives from 60 different crus with a focus on Oger (for opulence), Ambonnay (for structure), and Verneuil, for texture. Individual crus ferment in stainless steel, and the wines are racked to separate the lees and to undergo malolactic fermentation; each non-vintage cuvée contains at least 40% reserve wine that averages ten years of age, and after assembling the blend, the Champagne ages for about five years in the estate’s 2,000-year-old chalk cellars before disgorgement. more info
