Wine Review

Champagne Barons de Rothschild, Brut

The result of a complex assemblage, this wine is composed of 60% of Chardonnay essentially from the Côte des Blancs and 40% Pinot Noir. Aromas of light white fruits and dried fruits, fine bubbles and flexible body make it a particularly balanced champagne. To accompany complex flavours such as sea salt, caviar and a creamy foie gras.

Champagne Bolinger, Rosé

The non-vintage rosé of Champagne Bollinger is new for such an old house. It includes the masterful assembly of the "special vintage", enriched by the presence of the black grapes, Poirier and Montboeuf, on the great terroir of Verzenay, which provides its colour. Scents of fruits and spices, a round structure on the palate and fine bubbles perfectly integrated in the mouth make it an extremely attractive champagne. Perfect with light salmon dishes, pink lamb chops and red fruit tarts.

Champagne Bruno Paillard, Blancs de Blancs, Réserve Privée, Grand Cru

The chardonnay of this Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blancs comes only from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs. Thus, the variety can express its minerality. The nose of the Private Reserve is floral and crisp and the mouth is complex. Perfect pairing with scallops.

Champagne Drappier, Brut Nature Pinot Noir Zero Dosage

In this Drappier champagne, nature expresses itself freely and totally. In extreme purity, its aromas of red fruit, peach and quince extend slowly into a free mouth, thin and taut. A great accompaniment to Asian foods and red meats.

Champagne Krug, Grande Cuvée

It takes 20 years to make a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée. This patience achieves the ultimate Joseph Krug champagne that goes beyond the notion of vintage. This wine comes from the unique blend of 120 wines from 10 different vintages, some of which may have been kept for 15 years. Hazelnut, toast, nougat and fruit jelly, fresh flowers, ripe fruit, dried fruit, honey and brioche mingle with the subtlety of fine bubbles to create a tasty, fresh and racy sensation which enchants the amateur as well as the novice. A great match with truffled dishes, marinated meats and hard cheeses.

Champagne Ruinart, Brut Rosé

Ruinart rosé embodies the greedy expression of the Ruinart taste: intense, fruity, aromatic, it owes its elegant sensuality to the marriage of Chardonnay (45%, where the first wines of the Côte des Blancs prevail) and Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Marne valley vinified in red. The nose is subtle, fine, and fresh, with aromas of freshly picked cherry and red berries. Followed by beautiful floral notes (rose, hawthorn) and spice notes (tonka, nutmeg). On the palate, the wine reveals its silky, delicate fleshy charm. Will pair perfectly with seafood dishes, and lightly spiced Asian food.
