Master sommeliers & wine critics adore Family Estate Champagnes
Why? Family Estate Champagnes are exquisite, artisanal and one of a kind Champagnes. Unlike mass produced Champagne, they reflect the terroir [teh-RWARH] of Champagne's finest private estates, the artistry of the winemakers and the legacies of the families behind them. Until recently, these Champagnes could only be found at the world's most celebrated five-star restaurants, such as The French Laundry, Noma and Eleven Madison Park, etc.
So grab a flute or a coupe and let me be your personal chef de cave!

Made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in a single Grand Crú vineyard in Chouilly.
Rich & voluptuous, this treasure is named for the Archbishop Aubry de Humbert, who, in May 1211, laid the foundation stone of the Reims Cathedral ~ home to the coronation of French Kings.
“Fût de Chêne” (“Oak Barrels”) is 100% Chardonnay fermented and aged in, yes, French oak barrels, coopered from oak grown on the top of the Montagne de Reims. A favorite for the fantastical pairings at the famed Alinea (awarded three stars by Michelin).

The Darling of Master Sommeliers
From 35-year-old Chardonnay vines, this is an exceptional vintage ~ something a patient bon vivant would cellar. That said, I have yet to meet a terribly patient bon vivant.
