to celebrate our
Cristal 2007 -$199.99
The 2007 Cristal Brut has a golden hue with slightly orange-colored and warm highlights. It has impeccable, fine, regular, and dynamic bubbles. The attack of juicy ripe fruits and slightly acid red fruits combined with nuances of hot pastries and Tarte Tatin that have just been taken out of the oven. The textures are silky, velvety, and almost luscious; they provide perfect overtones to the wine's freshness in a luscious and sensual ensemble. Powdery and salty nuances stimulate the edges of the tongue, adding a precise and energetic quality. And the final phase of the tasting is predominantly an impression of refinement and lightness.
Rosé 2009 - $69.99
Tangy raspberry and black cherry fruit is underscored by smoke and mineral accents in this finely knit, racy rosé Champagne. Mouthwatering, with hints of apple blossom, lemon zest and creamed almond on the finish. Drink now through 2029.
Brut Premier N.V $41.99
This vibrant version is finely knit and elegant, with floral, toast and smoke aromas on the nose and flavors of crème de cassis and lemon curd riding the lacy mousse.
