White in spite of its name, this vintage Brut Champagne features a 50/50 blend of Pinot and Chardonnay grapes assembled only in exceptional years. Balanced, fragrant, structured and long in the mouth — a real delight!

  • A beauty in the glass with tiny, persistent bubbles. Rich with scents suggesting yeast, fresh pears, baked pears, and buttered toast. Similar to the Carte Or, but with everything amplified. As rich on the palate as it is on the nose, but balanced by crisp acidity on the attack that yields to butter and toast and baked fruit before a resurgence of acidity on a delightfully protracted finish marked by a duet between tarter and sweeter flavors. Seductively easy to drink. Excellent value.

    Food pairing: Cold game is the classic pairing, but try delicately smoked fish, sushi, or oysters; delicious on its own

  • A fragrant, toasty, nutty blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Deliciously rich, with hazelnut, pear, and vanilla flavors. A lovely, dry finish with lingering toasted hazelnut and tart apple. Drinking very nicely now, but complex and likely to continue to develop through around 2017.

    Food pairing: Cheeses like Gouda, Parrano
