  1. WS

    Smoke and toast accents lace crushed raspberry, candied lemon zest and apple blossom notes in this firm, aperitif-style Champagne. Lively. Drink now. 72,000 cases imported.

  2. WE

    A blend of the three main Champagne grapes from vineyards in 35 villages, this is light and fruity, with some bottle age giving it a hint of toast. White fruits and acidity add crispness to this well-balanced wine.

  3. WA

    The deliciously delicate Taittinger NV Brut La Francaise is strikingly buoyant and dominated by subtle scents of yeast-tinged flowers and foliage – honeysuckle and mint immediately come to mind – that allude to its roughly one-quarter Meunier component, with a luscious matrix of lime-drenched honeydew melon and apple well-supported by discreet residual sugar leading to a sustained and refreshing finish. Hints of toasted almond and vanilla-tinged cookie dough lend a faintly confectionary cast that manages to harmonize with the dominant fruitiness and florality, while piquancy of apple and lime pit serve for counterpoint. That Taittinger s standard-bearing cuvees (outside the U.S., the cuvee in question is called Brut Reserve ) are relatively short on Pinot Noir by standards of that genre is obvious on tasting. Enjoy this distinctive success over the coming year.

    The oak and blackberry notes in the DAOU Soul of a Lion are simply exquisite. It was like tasting a bit of heaven. Thanks to famelounge for the super fast delivery!

Champagne Blend
Champagne Blend, renowned for its sparkling wines, is a distinguished combination of three key grape varieties – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Although its origins lie in the Champagne region of northern France, this blend has transcended borders and found its place in winemaking practices worldwide, particularly in New World countries like the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The Champagne region's unique climatic conditions, characterized by its cool continental climate and cold autumns due to its northerly latitude, have been instrumental in shaping the blend's composition. In this challenging environment, the selected grape varieties had to be capable of ripening fully despite the climate constraints.

Champagne
 

The Champagne region, nestled in the northeastern part of France, boasts a winemaking heritage that stretches back through the annals of history. Revered worldwide for its exquisite sparkling wines, this region's allure is intricately tied to its unique geographical and climatic characteristics, producing some of the world's most coveted wines.


Champagne's vinous legacy traces its roots to the Middle Ages when still wines were produced here. However, it was in the 17th century that the magical transformation occurred – the discovery of effervescence through secondary fermentation in the bottle. This serendipitous revelation led to the birth of Champagne as we know it today, with its characteristic bubbles... ...Check Region for more information
