About The Wines:

Domaine de Clos De L’Epinay Vouvray Pétillant Tête de Cuvée Brut – $14.18
This award winning sparkling Vouvray is made using 100% Chenin blanc and only the first press juice. Giving it a perfumed, concentrated aroma of citrus and apple with a deep palate that lingers.

Sektkellerei Szigeti Grüner Veltliner Brut – $21.83
Lots of candied pears and grapefruits in the lovely nose. Rather criso on the palate with citrus fruits, bitter oranges, minerals, and yeasts.

Michel Turgy Champagne Grand Cru Réserve Selection Brut Blanc de Blancs – $34.50
Made from 100% Chardonnay, it offers nice yeast on the nose, coupled with some floral, citrus, wet stones and a bit of smoke. On the palette you’re met with tangerine, cream followed by lingering but subtle smokyness that creeps up from the back of the toungue during a nice long finish.

André Clouet Champagne Grande Réserve – $38.33
100% Organic Pinot Noir that spends six years on the lees, it offers full-throttle strawberry, wheat kernel, and stone flavors along with a pleasing touch of cream in the mid palate and finish – an excellent accompaniment to creamy pastas, poultry and richer seafoods.

1998 Charles De Cazanove Brut Stradivarius – $46.44
From an outstanding vintage, this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir shows aromas of stone, yeast, mild apple, pear and cream. The palatte is deliciously creamy with brioche, nut and mushrooms with a powerful, hearty finish for an outstanding wine.
