  • Domaine Hubert Clavelin Cremant du Jura Brut Comte
    $23.00
    Sparkling wine. Arbois, Jura, France. Sustainable. 100% Chardonnay. "I remember quite vividly back in the mid-1980s when the importer of this wine, Peter Weygandt first began to ship it into the US. I was a wine merchant at the time and sold plenty of this lovely, full-bodied sparkler. It had been many, many years since I had last tasted it, and the current release is every bit as good as I remember (how often does that happen?), as it offers up a rich and toasty nose of pear, apples, wheat toast, soil and a touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and complex, with fine mid-palate depth, pinpoint bubbles and good length and grip on the finish. This is a heavier style of sparkler (perhaps recalling old school Bollinger as its mold?), but beautifully balanced with bright acids and lovely minerality." — 87 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #21 (May/June 2009)

  • Champagne Christian Bourmault Hermance
    $42.00
    Sparkling wine. Champagne, France. Organic. 67% Pinot Noir, 23% Chardonnay, 10% Meunier. "The cuvée Hermance from Christian Bourmault is a blended wine that is actually, based primarily on pinot noir from the village of Mareuil le Port, with chardonnay from Cuis and pinot meunier from Mareuil le Port and Leuvrigny. The cépages of the current release is two-thirds pinot noir, twenty-three percent chardonnay and ten percent pinot meunier. The wine is from the base year of 2014 and thirty percent of the vins clairs are barrel-fermented, with the rest done in stainless steel. Like all of Monsieur Bourmault’s wines, the vins clairs underwent and extended elevage in the cellars prior to bottling for secondary fermentation in July of 2015; the wine was disgorged in October of 2018 and finished with a dosage of seven grams per liter. The bouquet is bright and classy, offering up scents of white peach, apple, lovely soil tones, gentle smokiness, brioche and a discreet topnote of meunier-like floral tones. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core of fruit, pinpoint bubbles, zesty acids and lovely focus and grip on the long, classy, and very gently oaky finish. This is very fine Brut NV!" — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
