The Best Bubbly




Nicole Brassard of the New Hampshire Liquor Commission suggests: - Pommery Brut Champagne Royal NV. “Rich and verging on full-bodied. The aromas and flavors are broad, with toast and berry notes.” $39.99 - Moët & Chandon Brut Rosé. “A delightful pink champagne that has dry, ripe red berry and strawberry flavor.” $35.99 David Duhamel from R.P. Imports recommends: - Domaine J. Lassalle Brut Reserve Cachet d’Or 1er Cru. “A lovely French champagne with flavors of bread dough, honey and citrus that ride the vivid structure to a lengthy crescendo, leaving a honey note in their wake.” $29.99 Steve DuBois from Martignetti Companies of NH offers: - Veuve Clicquot. “This very popular champagne is made up mostly of Pinot Noir but it also has some Chardonnay.” $42.99 - Bollinger Special Cuvee. “This champagne received 92 points from the Wine Enthusiast in 2002. Yeasty, bursting with fresh fruit, and lots of flavor. Has a long finish.” $49.99 - Piper Heidsieck Brut. “Complex, more yeasty bouquet than most, with a trace of toasted bread and apple. The single serve seems to be all the rage now. People drink it right out of the bottle with a straw.” $30.49 for 750 ml; $9.99 for a single serve (187 ml) - Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs. “Rich, complex and elegant with yeasty aromas and notes of dried cherries and hazelnut. Medium bodied. Crisp finish.” $31.99 - Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut. “This Spanish sparkler has apple and citrus aromas. Full of tangerine and lemon with character. Great with shellfish.” $11.99 - Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry. “Smooth, with aromas of vanilla and green apple. The finish is loaded with citrus peel and licorice.” $11.99
