SPECIAL! Purchase 3 – 375ml bottles at $28.50, or 6+/$26.95.
Hey! You have already decanted your dinner wine. You know how nice it is to be cooking dinner together or having some before dinner nibbles with a flute of fine Champagne. Problem is always opening a full bottle of bubbles and feeling you are going to waste it if you don’t drink it all…..not to mention how cost prohibitive it is cause you like to enjoy the “good stuff”!
Well Renee and I were treated to a sample 375ml bottle of the NV Henriot Brut Souverain (Reims) and we opened it the other evening to enjoy with some smoked salmon before dinner. Enough for a flute each and a little bonus! Perfecto! Great energy. Beautiful persistent bead of tiny bubbles. Elegant and refined, while still showing intensity and that wonderful “brioche” like nuance that is so appealing in the best Champagnes. A cuvée equally blended with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from premier and grand cru wines. Here’s the truth….these half bottles typically find a home in fine dining restaurants, where you get charged $60+ dollars to each enjoy a flute. That market does not exist presently for the distributors….thus another great deal is available to us.
I know many of you always ask me….”have you found any half bottles of Champagne worth buying?” Finally , we have! Best price on the internet for a 750ml. ranges from a low of $45 to a high of $59. I don’t see anyone offering these 375ml. Wine Spectator rated the latest disgorgement at 90 points and the review reads. “A sleek, well-knit Champagne. It offers hints of toasty smoke and grilled nut on the nose underscoring the palate’s poached pear, lemon cream and star anise notes. Creamy. Drink now through 2023. 6,000 cases imported” (December 15, 2020).
Order 3 bottles for $28.50 or 6+ for $26.95 …… that’s as low as just $13.98 per flute, plus a little bonus!
