July 2017 Cellar Choice
Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old
Fans of Yellow Label, this auteur Champagne has been created for you. Cellar master Dominique Demarville has identified a blend of reserve Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wines to produce a new premium cuvée with low dosage. You’ll discover fine persistent perlage and an intense golden hue — followed by a powerful palate of ripe stone fruit and candied citrus. Its toastiness has a hint of umami that goes well with anything from quail egg with caviar to salmon mousse. $110 from Cru World Wines
