Louis Roederer Brut

Félicitations, France and Les Bleus!!! This calls for rivers of champagne, which makes me so happy. Lemon, pear, crème, jasmine and white tea notes on the nose. Lemon, apple flesh, white tea, and bread on the palate. Nice balance of white fruit and citrus. Great entry-level champagne. Cheers to the World Cup champions!!

Charles Ellner Carte Blanche Blanc de Blancs Brut

Ohai. Here I am enjoying a little blanc de blancs champagne because I’m fancy like that. Lemon shortbread on the nose with pear, chalk, golden apples, and yellow flowers. Very tart right away on the palate, followed by lemon shortbread and orchard fruit and even a hint of stone fruit on the finish. Nice foamy mousse.

Pierre Paillard “Les Parcelles” Bouzy Grand Cru Extra Brut

Happy Father’s Day to all the dadas out there! For dada day brunch, I paired this grower champagne by the cousin of Bruno Paillard with some lovely smoked salmon and crème fraîche! Made of a base wine from 2012, this is the stuff! Lemon, orange zest, orange blossom, melon, orchard fruit, flowers, brioche crust and pastry flakes on the nose. Lemon, orange, and maybe even some nectarine on the palate with a floral and citrus finish. Nice finesse on this. All the love to the papas out there!

Oh you know, just poppin’ some 100% chardonnay bubbly with my Squishable friend over here. Lemon, bread, chalk, and green herbs on the nose. Simple and clean on the palate with lemon, a hint of marzipan, and fresh green apple notes.
