Bubbles or Sparkling Wines
Non-Vintage by Henriot from Champagne, France - regions. Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, with fine, delicate bubbles. Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes.

The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length. Lovely as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to dishes such as foie gras terrine, roasted chicken, lobster rolls, smoked salmon or sushi.

Non-Vintage by Bollinger from Champagne, France - regions. The denomination Special Cuvee was created in 1911. The idea came from William Folks, then partner of the illustrious London House of Mentzendorff. This great wine lover felt it was an insult to simply call this great wine non vintage. The suggestion of naming it Special Cuvee was immediately approved by Monsieur Bollinger. A blend par excellence, the Special Cuvee is the purest expression of the Bollinger style; of its craftsmanship and its singular conception of what a champagne should be. It is, therefore, on this wine that the House of Bollinger shows how it is different from other Champagne Houses, asserts its qualitative policy and by which it asks to be judged.

Ros by Scharffenberger from North Coast, California.

This type of vineyard selection allows us to choose from the best vineyards in the area, which enables us to produce our trademark cuvee.
