Very alluring and expressive on the nose, with a floral richness. Lovely balance between amplitude and nuance: the mousse is particularly fine and soft, but the finish is long and pristine. Classy and hugely charming Rosé. Sarah Abbott MW: "Very alluring and expressive on the nose, with a floral richness.

JCL 92 Tasting note: Lean, focused, detailed Champagne with beautiful, fine acidity. The dosage here is very low - only 6 gm/litre and the focus is on the racy acidity and citrus profile. A year or two of bottle age should round out the sharp acidity and make the wine more harmonious. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink. (27-Nov-2013) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]
Tasting note: A lean and angular Rose with just a hint of salmon-pink colour. An elegant style with focused acidity and lacy details with notes of strawberries and pomelo on the palate. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink. (27-Nov-2013) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]
Pale straw yellow color with greenish reflections, impeccable in the clarity enriched by a minute and incessant perlage very bright. The olfactory stage is composed of tones of exotic fruit, acacia, wild flowers, citrus fruits and suffused trace of minerality, flint, Mediterranean bunch. At the sip it shows a remarkable personality, which makes use of a perfect balance and an important flavour. The mineral finish is long and fresh, trademarks for the Rive region. Steely and dry.

Conegliano lies in the Valdobiaddene region of Veneto from which the very best of prosecco is sourced.. In terms of prestige in the hierarchy of prosecco it sits 2 rungs below the sebregion of Cartizze. There are many other cheaper versions available in the market but for the few dollars more that the good stuff demands in price, there really is no point in skimping.
We have been looking for a good example of this style for a long time and we think we have it nailed with this one. Too often you will find sparkling moscato expressed as overly sweet, cloying and boring. This beauty however has a great acid backbone that lifts the fruit, tames the sweetness in the middle palate and delivers a long and deliciously sweet finish with no hint of cloying. Delightful as an aperatif, served ice cold.
A perennial favourite. An uncommon blend of 40% pinot meunier and 30% each of pinot noir and chardonnay, with 40% reserve wines, fermented in a mix of tank and use of aged oak barrels. Deliberate choice of meunier is the key to its drink any time soon style, which combining elegance, finesse and great length. Price: $79.00; Rating: 95 Points; Top 100 Wines of the Year 2019; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion I tasted 18 current non vintage cuvées of the most famous champagne houses last week blind – a rare treat – and Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve was the most impressive for me! Jancis Robinson
Special Cuvee is a triumph of complexity and balance, at once rich and full, fresh and fine. Pinot noir (sixty percent) takes the lead with its rich fruit mince spice complexity, followed by the precise lemon zest freshness of chardonnay (twenty-five percent). Reserve wines bring Bollinger's signature yeasty, gingery notes, while barrel complexity adds a creamy texture and hints of brioche, nougat and almond. The finish pulls it all together into a masterfully controlled crescendo that lingers clean and long, with outstanding persistence and excellent, textural minerality. This wine has been precisely on form every time and everywhere I have...
G&G 94, WS 92 Indicative blend: 62% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay, 14% Meunier. Tasting note: Orangy pink colour. Refined, delicate nose mingling raspberry, wild strawberry and gingerbread. Full, melted mouthfeel, coated in freshness. An elegant, expressive rosé boasting great overall harmony. Uncork for any occasion. (26-Oct-2009) [Gilbert & Gaillard] BBLL
Silver pale with lemony tints, the colour reflecting the cool growing season and general lightness of the vintage. White flowers and spring-like freshness on the nose with citrus elements and a hint of dry honey. Great purity of fruit on the palate, showing a light creaminess at the start contrasting to a taut Granny Smith acidity on the finish. A true reflection of Bride Valley’s chalky Kimmeridgian soil.
This is the perfect light aperitif and beautifully displays the delicate cool climate qualities of English sparkling wine. Pale lemon-yellow in colour, with persistent tiny bubbles, elegantly lifted fruit and a textured dry finish. The ripe fruit gives it a full-bodied quality that make it perfect with salad, seafood, fish, or even chicken. “..broad and structured with a nice balance of orchard fruit and the estate’s signature acidity. It feels tightly coiled, with energy and drive on the palate.” Catherine Petrie MW
A first for England, Bride Valley’s Dorset Crémant is made from the harvests of the colder 2015 and 2016. At 3.7 bar, the lower fizz allows Dorset Crémant to ‘cream’ onto the palate. The Granny Smith acidity is there at the end. A perfect aperitif, displaying the beautiful, delicate qualities of English Sparkling Wine.
Top Gold Medal, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, 2019. Gold Medal, Bacchus Wine Competition Spain, 2019. Made using methode champenoise from chardonnay and grenache grapes, this sparkling pinkster is a giant killer. Super impressive wine that got everyone's attention when it took out the Top Gold in the sparkling wine category in the Concours Mondial.
“A firm and vivid Champagne with a precise, focused palate. Full-bodied and dry. It’s very layered and bright with light pineapple, peach, praline, cooked-apple and stone aromas and flavors. It’s very subtle and focused at the end. Integrated with richness and high acidity. Good depth. Reminds me of the 1995. Very clean. Solid. Lovely to drink already, but will age nicely.” – James Suckling 98 Points.
Tyson Stelzer 93+. "With...thirty percent declassified premier cru fruit in the blend, this is as cracking as I have ever seen Brut 17. A pristine bouquet of vibrant lemons and strawberry hull opens out into a palate of fantastic, linear freshness with great persistence, a fine, creamy bead and refreshing minerality. An ideal aperitif style. This champagne ranks as among the best value small producer champagnes. Super elegant champagne style." TS.
Forbes Magazine ~ "The Best champagne you've never heard of." This delightful Rosé Champagne is sourced entirely from Premier Cru grapes. It has managed to climb a crowded ladder to become Gordon Ramsay's restaurants' best selling Rosé champagne, and scores higher with the critics than the big name champagne houses at half the price. Dumangin and Sons are a fifth generation premier Cru champagne grower and maker, now into their fourth century of production. Definitely one to try. Decanter (UK), Steven Spurrier ~ Best Sparkling Wine. Tyson Stelzer 93+ Points. "The producer's best selling wine .....a very classy drink." James Suckling, 92...
Decanter Magazine ~ Top 50 Wines of the Year James Suckling ~ 95 Points ~ "Outstanding buy with a whopping nine years en tirage, this has a super contained set of complex aromas - toasty yeast notes, grilled almonds and red berries all packed in close and tight. The palate revolves around a core of concentrated lemon drop flavor, and acidity is a leading element, holding the finish well. Superfine and super fresh for the age. Drink now." Wine Spectator ~ 91 Points ~ "Fresh and lithe, this open-knit Champagne is lightly chalky in texture, with notes of white raspberry, piecrust, pickled ginger, and lemon zest. Disgorged July 7, 2014.

Wine & Spirit Magazine 91 | Francis Orban $ 80 2015 Champagne Year Extra Brut ^ Orban's estate focuses on pinot meunier but his limited production of vintage wine highlights his chardonnay parcels (accounting for 80 percent of this 2015). The wine’s tart cider-apple acidity heightens its leesy mineral buzz while the wine retains enough substance to take that buzz in a rich, herbal direction. Like Orban’s Brut, this integrates with air, suggesting it will benefit from a year or more of rest in your cellar. 2015 Francis Orban Extra Brut Vintage 90 POINTS The 2015 Extra-Brut Millésime is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier. Citrus, floral and...
Francis Orban leads 7.5 hectares of vineyards all in the commune of Leuvrigny, located on the right bank of the Marne, for an annual production of about 60,000 bottles, of which 80% are sold in France and the remaining 20% abroad . The Village of Leuvrigny is strongly characterized by three factors: an ideal southern exposure, an exceptional arigillo-calcareous terrain and a perfect microclimate, particularly suited to the cultivation of the Meunier Noir, a vine emblem of its property. Six Champagnes are produced by Francis Orban and four of them with 100% Meunier Noir. The Cuvée Brut Réserve, Rosé, Extra Brut and Prestige consist...
Intense and elegant, this Champagne Brut "Cuvée Prestige" by Francis Orban, is obtained from a cuvée assembled with 50% de vin de resérve of previous years. The pinot meunier (60%) gives weight and softness to the Champagne, to which chardonnay (40%) has been added to give elegance and grace. The result is an intense and elegant product, which plays on soft and fine lines, like a ballet dancer, that moves ethereal and graceful, while keeping intact the muscular power of the body. A game of subtle balances, which in the mouth, especially more than the nose, are expressed with body and gustatory grace. This Champagne spends 36 months on...
The Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs is a fruit driven style of great finesse and freshness. Very fine bead with aromas of peaches, apricots and nectarines. 100% pinot meunier. 50% of the wine is current vintage and 50% reserve wines from prior vintages. Aged 24 months before release. Dosage 3g/litre.
The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune. Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again. This is a fabulous Brut Premier. The Brut Premier is based on the 2007 vintage, with approximately 20% 2006 wines and 10% older reserves going back to 1996. The blend is approximately 40%...
Halliday Wine Companion 91 points. No new oak but the base wine spends 5 months in 2nd- and 3rd-use French hogsheads. Secondary fermentation in bottle, dosage with vintage port. Disgorged Oct '20. Purple/black colour, the same as the fruits within, all plums and berries and spiced up nicely with touches of cedar. A flash of sweet fruit across the otherwise full-bodied palate, finishing firm and dry. It's not just for Christmas, folks. Excellent match to spicy food, especially Chinese. Jane Faulkner Published 16 August 2021. WINEMAKERS COMMENTS The colour is a vibrant deep red with a ruby hue. Black fruit aromas with similar characters on the...
WINERY NOTE: Felice is our Moscato d'Asti, extremely pleasant, sweet but refreshing. Its moderate alcohol content and its elegant effervescence make it particularly suitable for any convivial and holiday occasion. It is great as an aperitif or cocktail wine. Tasting notes Color: straw yellow. Aromatic Profile: fruity and floral, notes of lychee, grapefruit and white peach. Scents of acacia flower and wild sage. Taste: elegantly sweet with light effervescence, fresh and clean finish.
Gold , Mundus Vini, 2020. Gold, Drinks Business Prosecco Masters Awaerds 2020. Masottina’s Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry is elegant and vivacious on the nose, with fruity notes of green apple, plum, pear and apricot enhanced by delicate floral nuances, as it is so typical of Glera grapes from the vineyards of Conegliano.
Moet & Chandon are the largest Champagne estate owning sixteen of the seventeen grand cru vineyards. It is one of the best known champagnes, offering consistent quality since its founding in 1743 by Claude Moet. From the crisp and clean house style to the incredible Dom Perignon, quality can be found at every level of this famous House.
WINERY NOTE: Aromatic wine of the most renowned, beautiful yellow-green colour, with characteristic gold reﬂections with a persistent frame of little bubbles. Pelissero Moscato d'Asti 2020 DOCG typical of our soils. To the taste it is a complex balance of sweetness from the fully ripened grapes, contrasted with fresh acidity to keep the finish clean and sharp. Intense and refreshing.
100% Chardonnay. Bianco Bianco is a naturally semi-sparkling wine made for Rocca delle Macìe in the province of Trento, within one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of grapes intended for the production of spumante. Once harvested, the Chardonnay (100%) grapes are fermented without the skins, and then the base wine undergoes natural second fermentation. Bianco Bianco is fresh and fragrant, with overtones of just-ripe fruit. It has a fine, persistent bead that makes it suitable both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to fried vegetable or fish platters.
Tyson Stelzer for James Halliday Wine Companion NV. 94 points. Sparkling Shiraz forms an integral part of the iconic Barossa tradition in viniculture. A celebration of the regions oldest and best loved grape variety, with bubbles to match. Unashamedly festive, sparkling Shiraz is the perfect addition to a holiday lunch or Sunday brunch. Beneath a rich shade of crimson lies at its heart a deep, complex stucture. Full of dried cranberry, cacao, blueberry and cherry. This wine is bold yet dazzling with a mosaic of flavours and a finish to match.
All that one would expect from a balanced Champagne. Doesn't hit the high notes of the hand-crafted or more precise Champagnes but balanced and infinitely drinkable. (16-Oct-2012) Jeannie Cho Lee
This is simply one of the most outstanding proseccos that money can buy. 3 Glasses Gambero Rosso 2010/11/12/13/14/15/16/17/18/19/20. Listed as a perennial in Grandi Cru d'Italia. Production area: Cartizze is a small hilly area with 106 hectares of vineyard lying between the districts of Santo Stefano and S. Pietro di Barbozza in the municipality of Valdobbiadene. Within such area lies ‘La Rivetta’ vineyard owned by Villa Sandi. A true cru that is the result of a perfect combination between a gentle microclimate and a very old land with calcareous sandstones and clays. COLOUR Very pale straw yellow and an intense, fine and persistent...
Excellent bone dry prosecco that ticks all the boxes. Pure fruit, excellent persistent bead, crisp acidity and clean, dry finish. DOCG quality through and through. Conegliano lies in the Valdobiaddene region of Veneto from which the very best of prosecco is sourced.. In terms of prestige in the hierarchy of prosecco it sits 2 rungs below the subregion of Cartizze (see Villa Sandi for our version).There are many other cheaper versions available in the market but for the few dollars more that the good stuff demands in price, there really is no point in skimping.
