Jedi of Champagne
Jean Baillette-Prudhomme Cuvée Millésime 2008 Premier Cru
Laureen Baillette rarely bottles a vintage Champagne but 2008 was different; it was an exceptional vintage in Champagne and Laureen decided to create a limited production of Millésime 2008. We were fortunate to import a few of these special bottles. The palate is complex and nuanced, with layers and layers of flavors. The aromas and unique tastes continue to reveal themselves as the wine sits patiently in the glass. We believe this is a Champagne that will age well for 20 years or more.
Grongnet Cuvée 'Special Club Millésime 2008
In your glass, the color of this vintage beauty is straw with a tinge of yellow. The aromas and flavors are bright with yellow apple, lime, lemon curd and white pineapple - a lively expression of fruit and acidity. The finish is beautiful, mouthwatering, lasts for what seems like months and leaves you wanting more.
Gimonnet-Oger Cuvée Blanc de Blancs Millésime 1996 Premier Cru
This Champagne has been resting peacefully in Jean-Luc's cellars for the last 15 years, and we are thrilled to offer it to you directly from those cellars. And for this amount of age, it is extremely youthful. 1996 is an exceptional vintage and it is a rare find these days. The mousse is immaculately white. Hints of candied nuts, toast, and pear lead to a finish of beautiful acidity and minerality that lasts for minutes. This clearly has a future ahead of it, as it will continue to develop for years to come. It is a very limited selection that will surely thrill Champagne enthusiasts.
