Sparkling Wines For Your Holidays

Things always get exciting around here during December! There is no shortage of things to do as we continue our 32nd anniversary sale. Many of you have profited from this year’s sale, and it is always great to see y’all here in the shop. Something exciting that’s new for us this December, is that you can now be a fan of ours on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. But the most exciting things about December are our sparkling wines!!! Sure, we carry sparkling wine year round, but in December, we pull out the stops and bulk up. This year is no exception. We’ve got some dee-licious fizz just ready to pop for any kind of celebrating you want to do. Here are a few that stick out:
NV Domaine d’Orfeuilles Vouvray Brut
Sparkling; Chenin Blanc; Loire;
$16.98

Looking for a killer sparkler for under $20? Stop right here. This Loire valley fizz does the trick and then some. Toward the end of a hectic day last week, we popped one in the fridge for our hard working staff to enjoy after we closed. My oh my, did it show well. Notes of appley fruit intermingled with a slight nuttyness, and that was wrapped around a distinct minerality. You rarely get that kind of complexity in a sparkling wine for a price like this.

This one is not to be missed! David tasted this back in January and somehow got 20 cases imported into the country. They are all that exist here in the US, and we have them. We, the staff, all get a Thanksgiving treat every year. We are allowed to pick one bottle of sparkling wine, our choice. This year, every employee picked this wine. Yeah, it’s that good!
2000 Pascal Doquet Brut 1er Cru Mont Aime
White Wine; Chardonnay; Champagne;
$59.98

At last year’s Wine House holiday party, we got the festivities going with this wine. Any questions?
NV Pascal Doquet Brut Rose 1er Cru
Sparkling; Champagne Blend; Champagne;
$62.98
Add to Cart
“The NV Premier Cru Rose Cote des Blancs is an intense wine packed with generous candied Pinot fruit. This richly textured, full-bodied Champagne possesses outstanding length and a gorgeous sense of harmony. Doquet’s rose is a wine that needs to be served alongside food, and my guess is that it has enough density and sheer stuffing to stand up to all but the most robust dishes. This is a terrific effort, and just one of a handful of truly distinctive roses. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.

Pascal Doquet is a small, artisan producer based in Vertus. This is a beautiful set of wines loaded with personality.” – 91 points, The Wine Advocate
