    A good rest on lees in the cellar through to May 2015 has seen this salmon-colored rosAc develop a wealth of dried porcini mushroom aromas that really make a savory statement. It's gently smoky and shows some dried cherry fruits too ' a gastronomic dream! The palate's smoothly cut with creamy red-cherry-fruit flavors and hints of pink grapefruit. It freshens into the finish. Thanks especially to a complex layered structure, this really is a brilliant rosAc. Drink now.

    Wonderfully aromatic and finely detailed, with a layered profile of dried apricot, raw almond, honey, ground coffee, nutmeg and orange bergamot. Shows power and focus, yet this is set in a sleek, finely knit frame. The chalky minerality firms the long, smoky finish. Disgorged July 2015. Drink now through 2026. 100 cases imported.

  • Bollinger is considered one the top Champagne houses. Originally founded in 1829 by Jacques Bollinger and Paul Renaudin, it has been the purveyor to the British Court since 1884, as well as several other European kingdoms. Bollinger has a classic, full-bodied style that reflects its Pinot-dominated cuv‹¨«es. This house is known for its muscular champagnes and R.D. cuv‹¨«es, which are kept for approximately ten years on their yeast lees.

    Champagne is the northernmost wine region of France, located 90 miles outside of Paris. Its storied wine reputation dates back to the Middle Ages; a few of the top houses, to which so much of the region's fame is owed, have been producing since the early 1700s. As one of the coolest wine producing regions in the world, Champagne is perfectly suited to growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier at the low sugar/high acid levels necessary for sparkling wines. The region's famous chalk soils not only reflect sunlight back to the vines, helping them to ripen, but also impart minerality to the fruit, giving Champagne its characteristic flavor profile.
