Non-Vintage by Luc Belaire from French, France - regions. Luc Belaire Brut is a highly drinkable and refreshing, with aromas of white flowers and a fruit-forward flavor profile of citrus and stone fruits, such as peach, grapefruit, and lemon. In the mouth, the wine is dry and light, with a crisp finish. Versatile enough to pair with nearly any dish, Belaire Brut is at its best as a perfectly-chilled aperitif.
Non-Vintage by Bartenura from Veneto, Italy. Notes of ripe peaches, melons and yeast mingle well with thebubbly texture of this just off-dry, medium-bodied wine. The fruitflavors are balanced well with the acidity and a creaminess thatleads to a pleasant lingering finish. Pairs well with lightly flavored fish, pizza, veal and chicken.
Non-Vintage by Louis de Grenelle from Loire, France - regions. A deep pink appearance flecked with fine bubbles. The bouquet is a festival of small red fruit (raspberry, wild strawberry) and flowers (iris, violet). On the palate, the wine presents notes of sour candies and red fruit. 100% Cabernet Franc. A wine for celebration par excellence, this is perfect as an aperitif or to accompany desserts (fruit tart, chocolate gateau).
Vintage by Dom Perignon from Champagne, France - regions. On the nose: The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet. A floral, fruity pastel tone then unfolds and quickly darkens into candied fruit, ripe hay and toasted notes, along with hints of licorice. On the palate: The wine's opulence - contained and succulent, round at heart - reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy. The whole eventually melts into an exquisite bitterness tinged with the briny taste of the sea. The weather in 2006 was mixed, but warm and dry overall. While July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet. The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly four weeks.
