Sparkling Wine Tasting

Just in time for the holidays, join us for a night of sparkling wines. 

Laurent-Perrier Demi Sec Champagne

NV Champagne, France (45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier)

Its bright, shining color is a fairly deep golden hue. Its nose is intense, with a range of aromas, such as dried fruit, almonds and hazelnuts, with grilled and toasted hints. After a little aging, these will evolve to even deeper aromas of honey and pine resin. 

Hungaria Extra Dry Rose

Etyek-Buda, Budapest, Hungary  (Pinot Noir)

This Extra Dry Rosé has never been imported into the United States before, yet harkens back to the slighter sweeter styled days of Champagne before the 20th century. Rather than just sweet for the sake of sweet, it actually heightens the fruit, adds texture and keeps the alcohol low. Tart cranberry and strawberry, intensely floral, and with a caremelized spicy note, it pairs well with BBQ, Mexican and Asian fare, and anything fried with some spice. 

Montalbera Bollicine Roseus Brut

NV Piedmont, Italy (100% Grignolino)

The wine is solid in the mouth, with small bubbles and good texture, with the aforementioned fruit flavors and an appealing chalky mineral quality that nicely offsets the fruitiness. 

Cachette Blanc De Blanc Sparkling Wine

NV Burgundy, France (100% Airen)

Cachette Blanc de Blanc is golden yellow in color and has light, delicate bubbles. It has a fruity nose with notes of stone fruits of peach and apricot, giving way to a pleasant and soft palate. 

Varichon & Clerc Privilege Blanc de Blanc

NV Savoie, France (Chardonnay, Chenin, Ugni Blanc and Colombard)

A delicious and engaging wine which is pale in color with delicate bubbles and a bouquet of flowers with herbal and mineral elements. Very elegant, stylish and refreshing with classic bottle aged flavours of toasted bread, vanilla and spices lingering on the finish.
