Piper Heidsieck, Cuvee Brut ZIP NV | Champagne, FR Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
A classic, well-structured, and fruit forward champagne offering a joyful display of neat, lively bubbles. Notes of almond and fresh hazelnut accompany the subtle, light, smoothness, that is marked by the pureness of fresh pear and apple and a delicate hint of citrus fruits. A blend of bright, crunchy pomelo, and juicy white fruits; all beautifully balanced. Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Crisp and clean, with a classic bouquet of orchard fruits, toasted bread, and a touch of minerality. It’s beautifully textured and has a solid mid-palate, good density, and a clean, crisp finish, all making for a high-quality Champagne to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years. $51.99

Pol Roger, Champagne Brut Rosé 2012 | Champagne, FR | 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
The expressive, opulent and well-structured nose offers an appealing and fragrant rich, spicy depth. The lovely bouquet of stunning strawberry, raspberry, plums, blood orange, toasted brioche and spice notes waft from the glass with energetic freshness. The taut palate has a refreshing backbone of acidity, that rounds out to a sensation of bursting red currants. Ripe cherry, pomegranate and blood orange sorbet flavors are well-knit to the sleek, mouthwatering acidity in this elegant rosé Champagne. This full-bodied wine’s ripe, racy acids are balanced by considerable texture and concentrated well-grained tannins. Terrifically rich and subtly plush, the fine mousse is effusive in the glass and stays through the lively and impressively long minerally finish. Savor now for freshness or keep for years to come for a richer and more opulent wine. It is the ideal choice to accompany grilled salmon or sushi. It marries perfectly with fruit tarts and other fruit desserts; try pairing with a “forced rhubarb fool”, the sharpness of the fruit complements the elegant structure of the wine. Drink now through 2030. $99.99
