Perhaps the Best Champagne You Can Find Anywhere!
A worthy top 10 Champagne List
1. Krug 2006
The King. ‘Nuf said.
2. Marc Hebrart ‘Special Club’ 2016
Soul-satisfying, ethereal, thought provoking. If you look closely at the Sistine Chapel ceiling, it is not Adam’s finger reaching to touch God, he’s actually handing over a bottle of Hebrart ‘Special Club’.
3. Pierre Péters ‘Cuvée de Réserve’ Grand Cru
Crap this is great! It captivates with both power and delicacy. It’s Betty White swinging Thor’s hammer in a bottle.
4. Pol Roger ‘Sir Winston Churchill’ 2012
Only made in superlative vintages, Churchill summed it up well: “My tastes are simple, I am easily satisfied with the best.”
5. Phillip Glavier ‘La Grâce d’Alphaël’ Brut Nature
A refined burst of minerally sunshine. Exquisite in its attack and elegantly wistful in its finish. And Chuck Norris shed a tear.
6. H.Billiot Rosé
A beautifully nervy rosé that also offers satisfying lushness. It exudes class in a punk rock world. It’s Princess Di taking the stage at CBGB.
7. Liquid Farm Blanc de Blancs Brut
Only 3 cases of this Champers came to Texas. Boldly balanced with a creamy propriety that elicits a smile with each sip.
8. Chartogne-Taillet ‘Sainte Anne’ Brut
There’s beauty here. Tons of it. It’s everything Champagne promises with heart pounding sophistication coupled with honest, bucolic fruit.
9. Aubry Brut
Year after year Aubry over-delivers. Yet we take its greatness for granted. Shame on us. It is delicious every time you pop the cork. It's hot water when taking a shower; you don’t think about it but it’s oh so satisfying.
10. JM Sélèque ‘Quintette’
Richly seductive and pure of heart with quiet truth and easily recognized virtue. It’s a piercing blue sky the morning after a devastating blizzard.
