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!

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.
Blanc de Blancs or Rosé? The perfect answer when it's just too taxing to decide.
Mon ami, this is the perfect start to the discovery of Family Estate Champagnes...or even better, a ready to go "Soirée in a Box". It includes three sensational Champagnes, each different styles ~ a blanc de blancs, a rosé and a blanc de noirs. Also includes Henri's "How to" guide for hosting a Champagne Tasting, including food pairings. Serves 6-8 bon vivants.
For you my dear bon vivant, stock your Reserve...or for the gift they will never forget. Twelve of Wine Spectator's favorite Champagnes from throughout the region. Complimentary shipping.
From revered chalky terroir, “Fleur de Craie” (Flower of Chalk), a Blanc de Blancs, expresses freshness and finesse with a pale golden color and fine effervescence. It is made from the treasured "Coeur,” the first press.
