Champagne Brut (Collon, Michel)
Michel Collon, Champagne Brut, Champagne, France NV40% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay GOLDEN APPLE & CRISP ASIAN PEAR, LEMON & GINGER, BRILLIANTLY BRIGHT From Champagne's southeastern outpost of Aube comes this lively bubbly of crystalline clarity. Youthfully bright golden fruit and pristine minerality like that of a hidden mountain stream carry the sumptuously subtle biscuity notes that we all love to taste in Champagne. Equally food-friendly, toast-tacular, and everlastingly evening-ready, this is the kind of sparkler that you could should get to know very, very well. Don't forget how rare grower-made Champagnes like this are. A gem! Serving Suggestion: As lovely as it is flying solo, Champagne is an oft-underutilized food wine. This one pairs exceptionally well with modern sushi of the "rainbow roll"-ish variety: a colorful plethora of fish atop wrapped shrimp tempura and avocado.
