Discover Something New
Join us for a very special tasting. We’re pouring 4 exceptional non-vintage Champagnes. It’s been 6 months since we featured Champagne. So, it’s time for a another visit.
Non-vintage Champagne is produced in a wide range of styles because of the location of the vineyards and the grapes that make up a particular cuvée. The following four examples are very different, but they are all very good. We’re pouring 2-5. Read on for the Tasting Notes.
Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut: The blend here is 35% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 25% Chardonnay. The style here is a bit toasty due to aging and because they own very old vines.
Piper Heidsieck Brut: A blend of 55% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Meunier resulting in a medium-bodied Champagne. I have not always been a fan, but in the recent years they have stepped up their quality and now offer an outstanding non-vintage Champagne.
Henriot Brut Souverain: A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the exact percentage varies but it includes 20% reserve wine producing a richer, more lush style.
Bollinger Brut Special Cuvee: The blend here is quite unique as it features a large percentage of Pinot Noir 60%, along with 25% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. It is a Champagne that is rich and precise, pairs well with seafood and lighter meat dishes.
Come by on Saturday to taste and enjoy these terrific non-vintage champagnes. I would love to know your favorite selections from the group.
