Champagnes

 
  Louis Roederer State Anderson Valley Brut  
 
Smooth, rich and creamy, with spicy pear, fig, melon and honesuckle flavors that are fresh and lively, ending with a tasty burst of ripe fruit.
 
  Moet & Chandon White Star  
 
The Moet & Chandon White Star has creamy, almost butterscotch aromas; soft palate; flavors are fruit driven, green plums and pears dominating; vanilla, toast, fruit on finish.
 
  Piper-Heidsieck Brut  
 
A pronounced graphite aroma introduces this finely wrought, chiseled Champagne. Lemon verbena, ginger and spice notes weigh in, and the finish is lingering, if tart.
 
  Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut  
  This champagne is young yet rich, fruity yet layered and a bit narrow yet deep enough to be convincing. More than that, it impresses today for its foamy, mouthfilling bubbles and long, lemony aftertaste.  
  Piper-Heidsick Rose  
  A charming wine with delicate and enchanting accents. It gives an impression of youth and vigor but also tenderness and serenity. The ultimate in refinement. An intense color, a clear and deep pink, while on the nose, the first impression is fresh. It has a strong aroma of red fruit, dominated by the Morello cherry. This is followed by a fragrant harmony of citrus fruit, mandarins and blood oranges. The final impression leaves a hint of cinnamon.  
  Taittinger Brut Rose  
  In its clear bottle, Taittinger Brut Prestige rose’s color, a brilliant pink, is shimmering and intense. The bubbles are fine and the mousse persistent. This champagne’s bouquet, satisfyingly intense, is both fresh and young. It gives off aromas of freshly crushed wild raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant with a pretty rose petal note. On the palate, this velvety champagne, of fine balance and body, is a subtle wine with flavors of fresh red fruit. The taste is balanced and youthful. Red berry flavors develop in the mouth, while remaining light on the palate, to finish with elegant flair.  
  Louis Roederer Brut Premier  
  Brut Premier is the embodiment of Louis Roederer style, combining all the fruitiness and freshness of youth with the vinosity of a fully mature wine. This is a structured and elegantly mature wine, with a lively attack and a smooth palate. A golden color with fine bubbles and a nose of fresh fruit and hawthorn. Smooth, complex palate mingling flavors of white-fleshed fruit (apple and pear) with red berries (blackberries, raspberries, cherries) and notes of toast and almonds. Brut Premier is excellent as an aperitif but also readily accompanies light entrées based on fish or shellfish.  
  Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Vintage Reserve ’98  
  This Champagne is a very ripe expression of the house style, with good pinot noir to chardonnay balance, producing a powerful yet reserved mixture that one would expect coming from twenty of its Premier and Grand Cru vineyards.  
  Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon  
  The emotion of a dense, deep substance, fleshy on the lips. A smooth flow, like a wave of sensations unfurling. The initial notes of fresh almonds and grapefruit gradually lead into cashew nuts and spices complemented by lightly toasted brioche. On the palate, an instant of weightlessness, matter vanishes, the finish vibrates, and the taste buds are aroused by controlled ardor. The persistence is remarkable, with just the slightest undertone of tartness (citrus zest and buds).  
  Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rose Reserve ’98  
  A luminous, deep gold/red and a persistent, fine mousse. The rich, intense nose displays notes of dried fruits (black figs, dates) and mild spices (vanilla) in harmony with a softer, almost creamy base. On the palate the texture is deep, dense and tightly woven. The structure of the pinot noir is perfectly rounded. Gracious notes of black cherries and raspberries dominate the finish. The exceptional flavor and taste of this truly great Champagne make it a magnificent accompaniment to fine cuisine, or it can be enjoyed as an apéritif for its own superb merits.
