When Pol Roger goes on sale for just $37.99 (reg., $49.99), it's like lowering the price of gold. With a style more like that of vintage Champagne, which normally sells for $70-$80, Pol Roger NV Brut is among the most renowned, and respected Champagnes of all. Buy enough for this year and for next, as Pol Roger ages beautifully, and because a sale like this is not likely to come around again for a long time.
Chardonnay is the heart and soul of Champagne Ruinart, and this exotically opulent Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Grand and Premier Cru Chardonnay from both the Côtes de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. With a rich, full, creamy palate, Ruinart’s Blanc de Blancs, offers ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors accented by smoke and subtle minerality.
Ruinart Rosé is produced from a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay from estate vineyards in Sillery and Brimont (ancestral home of the Ruinart family), along with grapes from Premiers crus vineyards in the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. It shares the unique mineral/spice notes of the Blanc de Blancs, with the subtle addition of delicate red fruit notes from Pinot Noir. Among the very best "food" Champagnes of all, and quite delectable on its own.
