NV Krug, Brut Champagne, Grande Cuvée, France, $120. This wine delivers everything that I love about Champagne – subtleness, complexity and balance. Aromas and flavors speak of lemon creams, spice, caramels, hazelnuts, toast and mineral notes, all supported by brisk acidity. The finish is endless. Drink over the next five years; 95/93.

NV G.H. Mumm, Champagne, Cordon Rouge, Champagne, France, $41. This Brut Champagne sparkles with a fine bead. Bread dough, pear and green apple aromas give way to toasty, nutty, lemony flavors. The finish is very dry and crisp; 89/89.

NV G.H. Mumm, Champagne, Joyesse, Champagne, France, $41. Looking for sweet Champagne? This demi-sec may be the answer. Displaying a fine mousse, aromas of peaches, pears and honey unfurl on the nose then morph into flavors of pears, figs and hazelnuts. The acidity carries the sugar with ease; 88/88.

NV Pol Roger, Brut Champagne Réserve, France, $35. This is my house Champagne, a tasty wine that you can proudly serve guests without breaking the bank. Citrus, spice, cashews and bread dough highlights the nose, which expands on the palate to reveal lemon, apple and mineral notes. Lively acidity breathes life into the wine; 90/90.

Bucko, for that kind of money you could be drinking Jean Milan Tendresse which is 100% Grand Cru Chard from Oger. Friends don't let friends drink Mumms....

Back to the war (we have sold over 60 cases of Champagne today and it is not really that busy yet, Roberto

Roberto,
Do you ship to North Carolina now? If so, I may have to get on the mailing list for your catalog. I buy most of my wine at retail shops here in North Carolina or on trips to DC but I might make the occasional purchase for something I can't find locally.

Give us a call at 1-800-WINE EXPO and we'll chat...

And what about No Cal? Do you have a web site I can check out?


- Innkeeper - 12-20-2004 10:11 PM

He doesn't have a website, but please call him. He's the nicest guy you would ever meet. Even my Beverly thinks he's great. Jeez!
