Last Minute Wine Gifts
Taittinger Champagne La Francaise Brut is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wines from at least 35 villages. The high proportion of Chardonnay (40%) is unique among fine nonvintage Champagnes. The presses are located in the vineyard for immediate pressing of the fruit after the manual harvest, and the resulting must be cold fermented under temperature-controlled conditions. After resting until the end of winter, the wine is blended, and then the final cuvée undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle in Taittinger’s cool cellars.
The aging of Brut La Francaise on the lees for almost 4 years more than doubles the legal minimum of 15 months. This extra time in the cellars allows the wine to reach the peak of aromatic maturity, and the result is a delicately balanced Champagne, known for its consistently excellent quality.
Eye: A brilliant golden yellow in color. The bubbles are fine, while the foam is discreet yet lingering.
Nose: Very open and expressive, the nose delivers aromas of fruit and brioche. Fragrances are reminiscent of peach, white flowers (hawthorn, acacia), and vanilla.
Palate: Lively, crisp, and harmonious. This is a delicate wine with flavors of fresh fruit and honey.
Food Pairing: Excellent with foods such as seafood and white meat.
Hugely popular world-leading non-vintage champagne, made with the three main varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier) and blended to the soft, balanced Moet house style. Bready and appley with a zingy twist of lemony citrus.
Varietal: 40% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 40 % Pinot Meunier
The Moet Imperial Brut is the House’s iconic champagne and one of the world’s most-loved Champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moet & Chandon’s unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.
The wine is bright fruitiness and elegant maturity. The aromas reveal notes of apple, pear, honey, and floral nuances with brioche and fresh nuts. The palate is seductive, richly flavorful and smooth.
Black Label’s brilliant color recalls the characteristic straw tones of the Pinot Noir, with glints of amber. It is lively in the flute, with a fine stream of persistent bubbles. Its fresh aromas combine the impression of vitality and spring-time scents, together with hints of toast and honey. Perfect as an aperitif and even better as a gift.
Grape Varietal: 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier
Alcohol Content: 12.5%
Nose: Springtime aromas, toasty hints, honey notes.
Palate: Bouquet of ripe fruits, citrus notes.

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label is the signature champagne of the House. Dominated by Pinot Noir, it offers a perfect balance of structure and finesse.
First, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label looks beautiful: golden-yellow, with a foaming necklace of tiny bubbles. Next it is so pleasing to the nose: initially reminiscent of yellow and white fruits, then of vanilla and later of brioche. Note the fine balance between the fruity aromas coming from the grape varieties and the toasty aromas, the result of the three years of bottle aging.
It manages to reconcile two opposing factors – strength and silkiness – and to hold them in perfect balance with aromatic intensity and a lot of freshness. Its consistent power to please makes it ideal as an aperitif, and perfect as the champagne to enjoy with a meal.
The Champagne presents a fine balance between fruity aromas and more subtle toasty notes. Initial flavors of white fruits and raisins develop into notes of brioche and vanilla with bottle aging.
Dom Perignon only produces vintage Champagnes, and each vintage Champagne is a unique creation that expresses the year’s character.
The 2008 vintage from this luxury Champagne house is nothing short of legendary, with average critics’ scores over twice higher than the exalted 1988. This vintage also marked the start of a new era at Dom Perignon as Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy stepped down and Vincent Chaperon took over.
Rich fruit. Nose is quite forward, with that trade mark match-strike smokey character subtly coming through. Smokey bacon, pineapple and guava on the palate with underlying ripe lemons and bright red apples, all wrapped around a texture from long lees ageing. Finishes very fresh and light, dances on the palate with a hint of that saline and twist of bitterness which really help balance the delicacy and finish.
Good to have it with: The wine enjoys duality: warmth & freshness, meat & iodine pairings, cooked & raw. Spices enhance and accentuate 2008’s effervescence and densify the wine. Dom Perignon likes playful experiences: culinary art, textures, and matters.
