"Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right," that wag of American letters, F. Scott Fitzgerald, once said.
John Maynard Keynes went the novelist one better: “My only regret in life," the economist and philosopher said, "is that I didn’t drink enough Champagne.”
Few drinks inspire such passion and devotion as Champagne, and none, perhaps, can rival it for sheer festivity. And can we talk about versatility? We all know that special occasions call for Champagne, but its most ardent devotees know that Champagne makes occasions special – that everything from weekend brunch to a simple plate of eggs and toast is elevated by a great glass of bubbly.
To pay proper honor to this wine of kings and king of wines, we've curated a selection of premium Champagnes and brought them together in a single, easy-to-find place: our new, month-long Champagne Marketplace.
The nearly three dozen gems include:
* the 97-point Champagne Pannier Blanc Velours NV, which Decanter, in a rave of a review, called "quite elegant and refreshing," with "lifted florals ... and tremendous length and poise ..."
* the 94-point Charles Coquet Dandy Grand Cru NV, a barrel-fermented Champagne that James Suckling positively swooned over: "so floral and agile on the nose ..." yet controlled "and focused" and "extremely flavorful at the end"
* the 94-point Virginie T 2009 Brut Nature Millesimé; Wine Enthusiast singled out the aging it underwent, resulting in a "balanced Champagne with a background of dryness but also with toast, almond flavors, and an aftertaste that remains full of acidity"
* the 92-point Bernard Brémont Grand Cru 'Cuvée Prestige' Champagne, which took home a Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2014
All of these wines are showing out beautifully right now.
And they're also all currently in our possession, which means you can expect to have them at your store in 8-12 weeks.
