Lamberti Sparkling Rose ($12.99): A blend of pinot bianco, pinot nero and raboso from the best vineyards in Treviso, this easy, fresh sparkler has aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and a hint of spice, with a soft, round mousse, making a great aperitif or an easy pairing for raw bar.
Pol Roger Brut ($46.99): Wine Spectator 92 pts / Robert Parker 92 pts.
An elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping.
Pol Roger Brut 2008 ($99.99): James Suckling – 94 Points (2008)
Attractive red berries, nectarines and biscuity notes with a hint of spice, too, and a sweet-smelling freshness to it. The palate delivers a very attractive and concentrated array of yellow stone fruit flavors. Smooth and creamy, sorbet-like finish. Drink now or age.
