RUD SEKT GERMAN ”50N”’NV – The 50N most certainly is. Its slightly off dry and full of fresh fruit on the palate — yellow apples, meyer lemon. The blend is a light, lively mix of Müller-Thurgau, Sylvaner, and Pinot Blanc and offers some of the best value in the house. It isn’t very complex, but its made in in the traditional method and is super fresh and easy to drink.”………35.99

TERRE GAIE VENETO SEMI-SPARKLING MOSCATO NV…………….33.99

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. Offers a lasting, vibrant finish.”………169.99

VEUVE CLICUOT DEMI SEC’NV  Like a sweeter version of a good blanc de blancs, with graphite, honey and lemon notes that mix with the richness and lively
acidity. Moderate length.”………..104.99

VEUVE CLICQOUT “LA GRAND DAME”’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. Offers a lasting, vibrant finish.”………299.99
