There is always a reason to celebrate, sometimes it is a birthday or anniversary, sometimes it is just Thursday. We have picked up a few good deals on Champagne recently. Now that is a reason to celebrate. Check them out.
Liebart Régnier Les Sols Bruns $36
60% Pinot Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
Cellar aged for 3 years with a subtle nose with a predominance of apricot and yellow peach. Delicate menthol, biscuity fragrances add richness with a lively tension from the citrus, predominantly pomelo flavors, this full-bodied wine has a delicate tartness to get your juices flowing. It is multi-layered and full of character. The dominance of Pinot Meunier means that its fruitiness is already enjoyable, pushing attractive citrus and fresh pineapple flavors forward.

Barnaut Blanc de Noirs Brut Grand Cru $45
Powerful raspberry and tangerine aromas are complicated by gingery spices and fresh flowers, with a suave overlay of chalky minerality. Creamy red berry and orchard fruit flavors show very good depth and are braced by zesty acidity. A weighty but lively Champagne with a long, spicy finish that repeats the floral note.

Philippe Gonet Extra Brut 3210 $45
Bright gold. Dried pear, marzipan, honey and lemon pith on the pungent nose. Dry and chewy in texture, offering poached pear and buttered toast flavors braced by a smoky mineral nuance. Shows good power and focus on the persistent, mineral-accented finish, with the butter and honey notes repeating. The blend of richness and energy here will make this a very flexible Champagne at the table.

2011 Michel Gonet Grand Cru Mesnil Sur Oger $40
Opening in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of white currants, citrus oil, warm bread and wet stones, Gonet’s 2011 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is full-bodied, deep and tensile, with a racy spine of acidity, a fleshy core and a long, saline finish. Mineral and elegantly austere, this is nonetheless beautifully balanced.
