Champagne Tasting…Stradivarius!

Stadivarious champagne

What could be better than a wine tasting at one of our favorite restaurants ~ River and Rail in Roanoke, Virginia…a champagne and sparkling wine tasting! This restaurant was the perfect setting for a bubbly tasting…”An intimate bistro featuring local, seasonal, southern fare and craft cocktails in a stylish modern space.”

Bill Phillips, proprietor, Mr. Bill’s Wine Cellar, in Roanoke, treated us to  a series of sparkling wine and champagne.  To our delight, one of the champagnes he served that evening was 2000 Charles de Cazanove Stradivarius with raw oysters on the half shell.

Charles de Cazanove describes their Stradivarius Brut Champagne, “a symphony of meaning and passion; its unique flavor reflects the finesse of the vintage and provides an original harmony. The bouquet opens on ripe fruit, walnut, toffee and almond aromas.  A powerful, hearty finish for an outstanding wine.” This champagne brings back memories of when we visited the Charles de Cazanove champagne house in Reims, France. Such an impressive grand “masion” (mansion in French) and sipped the Stradivarius champagne for the first time. I fell in love with the beautiful musical label on the front of the bottle. I found the bubbles inside to be delicate with a creamy mousse, seventy percent chardonnay, 30 percent pinot noir.  The 2000 is toasty with notes of pear, walnut, almonds and a full finish.

Over the weekend we also enjoyed a 1998 Stradivarius. Beautiful golden color. Notes of brioche and buttery toasted nuts. Fabulous lingering finish.
