‘Come quickly brothers, I’m drinking stars’ - Dom Pérignon, upon his tasting among the first successful bottlings of Champagne as we know it. Champagne, in these modern times, is arguably the most scintillating of all sparkling wines, the near-weightless beverage that would raise any occasion from the ordinary to the memorable.

2004 Champagne Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires< 2004 Champagne Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires

Charles Heidsieck founded his own Champagne house in Reims in the year 1851. He understood the United States an important emerging market, so he invested a good deal of time here, traversing our country north to south repeatedly promoting his new brand. He eventually became known here, lovingly, as «Champagne Charlie». Blanc de Millénaires is the ultimate in the range of fine sparkling wines of Champagne Charles Heidsieck. Produced only in certain vintages when conditions allow of 100% Chardonnay from four Grands Crus, namely Cramant, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil sur Oger and one Premier Cru, that of Vertus. Delicate aromas suggesting citrus, apple blossom and orchard fruits, particularly mirabelle plum; supremely balanced on the tongue with a fine, fine mousse; complete and total engagement on the palate with delicate flavors poised and projecting, fresh and invigorating on the finish long after the wine itself has passed. In this taster's humble opinion, this is absolute perfection in sparkling wine.

This bottling represents some ⅔ of the production of the very well-run cooperative that is Champagne Le Mesnil. Brilliant white-gold in color, this Brut Blanc de Blancs has a lovely harmony of elements, fresh and most enticing and inviting aromas suggestive of melon, cool of the morning grape plucked from the vine, buttered biscuit and flower pollen; nice medium-full mousse, then expansive on the tongue and supremely flavorful, its crisp fresh chalky dry finish just begging another pull. Delicious!

Champagne Pol Roger Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve Champagne Pol Roger Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve

Founded in 1849, Pol Roger is one of only a few Grande Marque Champagne houses that remain family owned and operated. Pol Roger Brut White Foil is produced from the first pressing only of fruit from Premier and Grand Cru Vineyards, about ⅓ each Chardonnay from Cote des Blancs, Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims, and Pinot Meunier from Vallee de la Marne and Petite Valle d'Epernay: pale gold in color with an ultra fine bead; flowery, delicately toasty aroma; creamy textured, then supremely balanced on the tongue with a dry, well-rounded and harmonious finish that so elegantly cajoles another pull. We find it delectable. And, if it is true that a Champagne house be judged by the quality and consistency of their House Brut, then the house of Pol Roger, in our humble estimation, ranks among those at the very top.
