NV Henriot Blanc de Blancs
On the eye: Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, fine and regular, with fine, delicate bubbles. On the nose: Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes. On the palate : The attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with aromas of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length. Champagne Henriot’s Blanc de Blancs is an assemblage of Chardonnay grapes mainly from the Côte des Blancs and village crus: Mesnil sur Oger, Avize, Chouilly, Vertus, Montgueux, Trépail, Epernay and the Vitry region.

NV Jacques Copinet Brut
Beautiful burnished gold color. Cream, lemon and white melons. A wonderful balance of power, finesse and wonderful elegance.  75% Chardonnay / 25% Pinot Noir

NV GH Mumm Brut Cordon Rouge
Toast and dried fruit notes mix in this very harmonious dry Champagne, which is full of flavor—dried apricot, candied orange peel, nut and smoke—but still elegant and light-weight. The rich, toasty note lingers on the vibrant finish. 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier.  Drink now through 2020.
