29 Dec The Sipping Point 12/29: Sparkling Cocktails
Sips of the Week
Domaine Chandon Brut, California $18.99
Winemaker’s Notes: Classic balance typifies this refreshingly soft, yet dry wine. The wine delivers complex apple and pear characteristics accented by citrus spice over notes of almond and caramel in the bouquet. When you taste Brut Classic, look for nutty flavors with hints of brioche that build to a refreshingly dry finish.
Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne, France $32.99
Winemaker’s Notes: Delicate and Elegant, The Brut Réserve is aged for at least 3 years in our cellars, even though the legal minimum ageing requirement is 15 months. 150 different crus make up the blend. Reserve wines account for 15 – 35% of the blend to maintain the Brut Réserve’s consistency of quality and style from one year to the next.
