This value champagne, a medium straw hue, has a crisp apple frame with toasty notes and a fine nutty layer. The mousse is, perhaps, less fine and creamy than others, but more refined mousee commands a higher price point.
It is very enjoyable for occasions. We drank it twice: New Year's Eve toasting for 2002 and recently (2005) we enjoyed it with breaded, broiled sea scallops, snap peas and fresh baguette soaking up a single-orchard extra-virgin olive oil from the Tuscan coast. It is a fine match to many meals!
Wonderful Brut, great for that special evening and won't burn a hole in your pocket.

This house continues to send solid Champagne from France with bright apple fruit with minerals and hazelnuts, complete with delicate toastiness. Excellent price/quality.

This beautiful premier cru Champagne comes from a cooperative of growers. It has ripe nearly tropical style fruit and toasty yeasty fruit. Excellent stuff for under $30!!
At this price point there are better choices, but this is a perfectly nice brut.
France is the fountainhead of the grape varieties most craved by

Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. In fact, these grapes are widely
referred to as "international" varieties because they have been planted and
imitated all over the world. Read More »
