($172; L6202UB02500 etched on bottle) Light yellow. Stony peach and pear aromas are complicated by smoked meat and Asian spices. Round and filled in, with admirably deep pit fruit flavors, a pliant texture and a fresh mineral kick on the finish. Leaves a strong pear impression on the palate and an echo of minerals.

This champagne is the best for me. It does not have the heavy yeasty taste of Dom. It is clean, crisp and delightful going down,wonderfully effervescent. Begging for a bite of lobster,oyster or perhaps a bit of caviar to compliment.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
