Purveyors of fine grape juice
NV Vouette & Sorbee Fidele champagne, france
$150

Woooooo It's time to get fancy.
We don't work with Champagne very often - as a region it is essentially a poisoned, barren wasteland - our opinion. There are however, some amazing family growers, and this has always been one of our favourite wines. This is the zero dosage (no added sweetener) Blanc de Noirs Fidèle. The vines were planted in 1986 and the wine has been in perpetual motion since 2001. There is a blend of vintages starting at that one every year. This is the 2011, which is stated on the back label with an "R" number. It is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and is basically the perfect gift - or the perfect thing to drink yourself!
