Champagnes To Celebrate Summer!

 

soutrin champagne

Soutiran Brut Grand Cru Champagne NV

$45 range

50 percent Pinot Noir and 50 percent Chardonnay grapes from Grand Cru vineyards.  Full bodied. Toasty baked apple notes. Wine Enthusiast gives this bottle a rating of 93 points.

Hablin champagne

H. Blin Champagne Millesime

$40 range

Wine Spectator rated the non-vintage H. Blin Brut Champagne 91.   Wine Spectator  tasting notes: Kumquat, pastry, poached pear and macerated apricot notes mix in this creamy version, backed by a steely spine of acidity.

Vintage 2006 H. Blin Champagne

$48 range

Wine Enthusiast tasting notes:  Crisp, tight acidity and still-young, fresh fruitiness give this wine its initial brightness. Rich and full in the mouth, it also has a range of complex fruit flavors followed by hints of toastiness that will only continue to develop. It should be aged further, so drink from 2016.

$50 range.  You’ll recognize the name “Louis Roederer” as the same name you see on the Cristal champagne label. Fresh and creamy with almond, toast and citrus notes.

  • Wine Spectator rates Louis Roederer 92:
    Finely knit and elegant overall, this vivacious Champagne is creamy and satiny in texture, with layers of yellow plum, chalk, toast, glazed apricot and lemon curd. Offers a lingering, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020.
  • Wine Enthusiast rates Louis Roederer 92:
    To judge by the cork, this bottling has some age, giving it a toasty as well as fruity character that adds complexity to this baked-apple and citrus-flavored wine. 

    Chocolate Paper

    And this is how I like to consume craft beer – in chocolate!  These Deschutes Brewery chocolates are available at Chocolate Paper in Roanoke, Virginia.  A reduction is made out of the Deschutes Porter then combined with a rich chocolate ganache. Yum!
