Antoine Derigny Grand Cru Brut Champagne NV
Yes, yes, this is a screaming, how-do-these-guys-do-this deal, for sure, but what we want to tell you is that we had this beautiful bottle *(OK, truthfully, FOUR bottles)* over Thanksgiving. And then when we got back to the office we bought a case. OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD, serious, grab-ya-by-the-palate bubbly. GRAND CRU! 100% Chardonnay! 5 years on the lees!! STUNNING price, truly!
OK, ok, sorry. But….wow. For under $30, a colossal no-brainer for the holiday. It’s toasty/citrusy brilliance, and with the 5 years on the lees (the yeast sediment) there is a whole other dimension of sweet bread dough, toasty croissant, ginger and lemon extract...fresh, pure, and immensely satisfying. The bottling comes from the family’s Grand Cru vineyard holdings in the coveted Le Mesnil-sur Oger area of Champagne, and is basically a Blanc des Blancs, being 100% Chardonnay, which we happen to love, too! So this really hits ALL of our bubbly buttons, oh yes!! What a price!! For Grand Cru!? C’mon!!
Not a lot to go around unfortunately --- gotta put some in the wine rack or cellar TODAY! Woo hoo! While it lasts..!
