TRIONE SONOMA BRUT’15……..65.99

VEUVE CLIQUOT YELLOW LABEL”’NV…104.99

VEUVE CLICUOT PONSARDIN BRUT’04  Here Dominique Demarville looks to tannins to provide complex structure, so the wine is compatible with a wide range of foods. One of the keys is the component that goes into the oak fermenters. The pinots (noir 62%, meunier 8%) do much of the heavy lifting, and the 7g/l dosage does not obscure the citrus/mineral streak that runs through the back-palate and finish.”………..124.99

VEUVE CLICUOT ROSE BRUT’NV  Has the same apparent composition as the NV Yellow Label of 50-52% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay and 18-20% pinot meunier; but here there is 12% pinot noir table wine included in the total pinot component. Demarville says it is the most difficult wine to make; the red wine tannins must be managed so that the creamy mouthfeel is maintained without denying the strawberry-accented fruit flavours their distinct point of difference.”………..124.99

VEUVE CLICQOUT ROSE’08 – Rich and smoky on first impression, yet this harmonious Champagne is elegant overall, with sleek acidity and a minerally underpinning deftly married to flavors of strawberry pâte de fruit, toast, mandarin orange peel and crystallized honey.

acidity. Moderate length.”………..104.99

Offers a lasting, vibrant finish.”………299.99
